Meet the teenage girl who has transformed herself into a living cartoon character

With her enormous, glassy eyes, purple hair and coquettish pose, this girl could have stepped from the scene of a Japanese anime film.

Anime fan Anastasiya Shpagina has transformed herself into a living cartoon character, complete with miniature waist, vividly-coloured hair, and a defined pout.

Originally from the Ukraine, the 19-year-old takes style inspiration from the cartoons and computer animations that have a huge following in Japan, and has even adopted a Japanese name - Fukkacumi.

Anime characters often feature huge eyes and heads that are disproportionately large in comparison to their body.

Shpagina, who is just 5ft2ins tall, is already reported to have slimmed down to just over six stone in her attempts to resemble a living anime character, and is said to spend 30 minutes painstakingly applying her dramatic make-up to each one of her eyes.

It is thought Shpagina may go even further in her efforts to achieve her desired look, with some reports claiming she intends to undergo surgery on her eyes to make her resemble her anime idols even more closely.

The teenager, who has over 10,000 fans on Facebook, also posts videos on YouTube demonstrating how she applies her make-up.

One clip, in which Shpagina reveals to fans how she achieves her 'flower fairy' look, has been watched more than 150,000 times.

Shpagina is not the first young girl to take style inspiration from the world of fantasy. American Dakota Rose - or Kota Koti - has been dubbed the 'real-life Barbie' thanks to her doe-eyed stare and dainty proportions.

The teenager has amassed a global audience by posting fashion and beauty tutorials on YouTube.

I love the living 'doll' look. But she's taking it waaay to far.
I actually quite like the make-up, and I'm a big fan of brightly coloured hair, but I'm really not a fan of how thin she is. Not big on the surgery, either.

I suppose it depends on boundaries.
As in - doing this sometimes like for an anime convention - I think she looks awesome for what she is trying to do.
Doing it as a way of life - as apparently she is doing - kind of 'freak show' to me.
Starving yourself down to 84 pounds can't be that good on you either.

Meh, Maybe she will get a career touring anime conventions. Women have done worse things to their bodies for money. Though if she proceeds with the mentioned possible plastic surgery - um... NO. Too weird.

She just doesn't look real, that's what I thought looking at those pictures. Still, I suppose if that makes her happy.

She just looks sad. If this is what she thinks/feels will make her happy.. power to her. Those eyes though....
