A woman in Germany reportedly spent more than $64,000 on surgery to make herself into an "exotic Barbie."
Martina Big underwent extreme procedures to enlarge her breasts to a size 32S and used both tanning injections and a sunbed to darken her complexion to a "dark, crispy brown."
"I was not expecting to go so dark but it worked so well," she told the Daily Mail. "I love it and I really want to push it to the extreme. Now I just want to get darker and darker and see what the limits are. I love the contrast of my bright blonde hair and my dark, crispy brown skin. I love seeing the reactions of people. I can see their big eyes when I walk past and their shocked faces, thinking 'how is this possible?"
Big said she isn't "pretending to be a black girl," but rather is trying to look like a "unique and exotic Barbie."
"Yes, I have the skin of an African girl," the 28-year-old said. "But I am not pretending to be a black girl. I'm going to create a unique and exotic Barbie with dark tan, bright blonde hair and exaggerated curves. I like this look."
Big, a former flight attendant, first decided to make drastic changes in 2012 when her boyfriend encouraged her to pursue a modeling career.
"At first, I wanted to look like Pamela Anderson or Katie Price, but now, I realize that is not for me," she said. "These women are not curvy enough. And so now, I am more inspired by Barbie or Jessica Rabbit, but I go my own way and am creating my own extreme look."
More than $64,000 later, she said her fans have grown to love her appearance.
"At first, my fans were irritated, saying, 'Why did you do this?!' but that is because they have never seen a white girl change her skin to African dark before," Big recalled. "But now, they have got used to it, they are excited like me. They say, 'Oh, I like your style! Go darker! Go darker!'"
Her boyfriend Michael said he supports Big so much that even he plans to get tanning injections.
"I didn't want to go quite as dark as Martina, but I support her and like her new look very much," he said.
"It is a great feeling for me to have Martina by my side," Michael said. He continued:
I am the boyfriend of the woman with the largest breasts in Europe. I hope for the future that Martina will continue inflating her breasts, inflating her lips, getting more tanned and getting big butt implants. Martina has this extreme look because she has always followed her heart. She and I, our dreams are the same and from change to change, Martina just becomes even more beautiful.
Many who read the story criticized the woman in the comments of a Mad World News Facebook post for changing her appearance so drastically.
"She looks really stupid," one reader said on July 5. "I can't believe Just how dysfunctional this world has gotten. We are going backwards people. We once had the most brilliant people with drive and wanting to advance with break through in several fields. Now they want us to bow down to a barbaric ideology who's solely bent on destruction. And you people are okay with this logic? I just don't get it!"
"She has some sort of mental disorder IMO," another added. "I understand plastic surgery to correct scars, etc and botox for migraines. I don't understand not being satisfied with the looks the Good Lord gave us."
