Experience News in a New Way
First we have dolls that look like real babies. Now we’ve found a real person that looks like a life-size porcelain doll.
We know girls have always liked to doll themselves up a bit, but 15-year-old Venus Palermo of London is taking it to the extreme.
“I like to dress in frilly dresses. I like to wear my hair in pigtails,” Venus told a London reporter. “I turned a teenager and discovered myself, how and what i really want to be.”
Venus Angelic, as she’s known by her fans, has chosen to live her life as a living doll.
She has a YouTube channel that shows other girls how they can be real dolls too. She’s become an internet sensation with more than 40,000 subscribers and 14-million views.
It’s all a bit strange and disturbing to us, but her mother seems to think it’s better for her daughter to dress like a baby than have one.
“I would be horrified if she comes home pregnant,” said Venus’ mom Margaret Palermo. “I am not horrified if she is a very nice, innocent, good girl who likes some cute clothes.”
Whether you think it’s beautiful, personal style or just bizarre, when you see her you have to admit she’s a pretty convincing doll
