Real Life Animé Anastasiya Shpagina

One peaceful yet so humid evening, I'm trying to search anything about animé, don't get me wrong here, I'm not really into that stuff... anymore! ;-) Well, I came across with an article claiming that there's a girl who pulls some serious make-up sorcery to appear somehow, just like an anime character.

Meet Anastasiya Shpagina, Ukranian, she's 19 years of age as of this writing year 2014, 1.58 meters tall, weighs just 39 kilos and is trying to lose one more in order to look just right. Yes, she's taking this stuff pretty much seriously. She has even taken the name Fukkacumi, to sound more Japanese.

Due to her popularity, Anastasiya Shpagina appeared on a lot of TV shows there in Ukrain as well as being interviewed by various Ukrainian newspapers. On one interview, she admitted that a lot of people are freaked out by her look s when they see her on the streets of Odessa.
However, she loves bumping into Japanese tourists, some of them try to talk to her, but unfortunately, they don’t speak Russian and she doesn’t understand Japanese. One funny story though, the young hairdresser says that their eyes become as large as Europeans when they see how close her face resembles that of an anime character.

Anastasiya gets up at five in the morning every day in order to be at work by nine. That’s because she needs a lot of time to get into character. On one of her eyes, it takes her 30 minutes to do the makeup, and in about two hours, the entire face is ready. That’s probably why she would like to have surgery in order to change the shape of her eyes permanently. She says this kind of surgical procedure is very common in Japan, but she doesn’t know if it’s also available in the Ukraine. In order to look more like an anime character, she would like to get her waist reduced surgically as well. But for now, she has to make do with makeup in order to look as realistic as possible.

Anastasiya was kind enough to provide a video tutorial of her make up process, you can make this as your guide for you to become an animé character yourself ;-)
