Teenage girl becomes real living doll, freaks everyone out

Is there something going on that I'm not aware of? After reading about the real-life Barbie doll, I thought that was the scariest teen girl that I could ever see. She's pretty, yes, but also weirdly scary.

But now there's another teenager freaking me out: 15-year-old Venus Angelic, a girl who dresses up like a real living doll and teachers others how to look like her in popular YouTube videos.

It seems like this is a new trend for teen girls: dressing up like dolls. Why is this Ok? It's fetishistic and just downright weird.

Angelic likes dressing up like her dolls and now puts up online tutorials to teach other young girls how to the look. In a video, she tells the Huffington Post that "some people were asking me, 'how do you do your makeup?' and I decided to put a tutorial on YouTube." 

Apparently she was originally inspired by her love of Japanese anime culture, which makes sense since she sort of looks like an anime caricature. Her eyes are huge, her pinks rosy and her makeup just right. 

I used to love anime as a teen, but I was never inspired to make myself look like a doll. To hear this girl tell it, it sounds like the best thing that's ever happened to her. But is she going to grow up to be a doll-like adult? That, to me, is even scarier than her appearance now.
