Earlier this week we revealed pictures of plastic wannabe Valeria Lukyanova alongside matching real-life Ken doll Justin Jedica.
And today we can divulge the bizarre life behind Valeria’s obsession with turning herself into the spitting image of the iconic blonde Barbie doll.
Ukrainian Lera short for Valeria lives on a liquid-only diet, is married and believes she comes from a distant planet.
Her friend and fellow Barbie lookalike Olga “Dominica” Oleynik explained: “Me and Lera, we come from the constellation of Pleiades. There, such looks are normal.”
Lera, who has more than 668,000 “Likes” on her Facebook page and refers to herself as “the most famous Russian woman on the Russian-speaking internet,” added the pair are soulmates from another life.
She said: “When I first saw Dominica, I immediately recognised her from our past lives.”
When pictures of Lera first emerged in spring last year, many doubted whether she was real or if the unnatural look was down to clever photo editing.
But she explained her seemingly unattainable proportions come from daily gym visits, starving herself and a boob job.
She believes she will rely on “prana”, which in Hindu tradition means life force, to nourish her.
In an interview with a Russian newspaper in October, during which she consumed only a juice of melon and raspberry, she said: “For the last four months I’ve been on a liquid diet and then I plan to drink only water.
“After that I will live only on the prana. For many years I was on a raw food diet, but for deeper spiritual practices I need to improve myself.”
In a series of video blogs for her fans, she said her “ultimate goal is to be powered only by solar energy”. And she claims to have mastered the art of time travel through space. She told fans: “I also teach people to leave their physical body and travel in the endless expanses of the universe.”
Lera does not want kids, because that is not what they do in her universe. “I don’t feel the desire and the capacity to be a mother,” she said. “I’m from another universe.
“There, everyone is asexual in our dimension there’s no such thing as children.”
And when asked whether she and her husband are more like brother and sister, she replied in a baffling manner: “I’m not interested in this topic. Either you are here or you enjoy the human pleasures.
“I do not have animal urges. Some people enjoy eating the most, some having sex.
“I will say one thing the less you make this so-called love, the better.”
