A 17-year-old spends four hours per day applying makeup to look like his favourite doll, Ken, while he saves for plastic surgery to change his appearance for good.
Felipe Adam has been obsessed with the doll since he was a child and refers to Ken as a ‘god’.
The student wakes up at 2:30AM to ensure he can contour and apply makeup ahead of classes starting at 7AM.
Felipe, from São Paulo, Brazil, is currently working as a handyman, to save for plastic surgery so he can achieve Ken’s ‘perfect’ appearance without makeup.
“The Ken doll is like a God to me - a God of beauty of aesthetic perfection,” he said.
“I love his clothes, hair and even shoes - everything about him is perfect.
“I'm very creative so I used makeup to look like Ken as I am not old enough for surgery yet.”
Felipe takes four hours every morning to complete his makeup routine, using a strong liquid foundation to “enhance” his features and contouring, using a highlighter and a bronzer.
While he doesn’t promote plastic surgery, he wants to have many procedures done to get his desired outcome.
Felipe said he is currently saving to have botox, a nasal lift, bum implants underarm fat removal and thigh padding, amongst other procedures.
“I know it can be dangerous but I am not afraid of surgery however I do not recommend any procedure to anyone,” he said.
He has carried out services such as lawn-mowing and pot-washing in a kitchen to save for future aesthetics.
Felipe estimates he would need to spend a whopping 2 million Brazilian Real [$500,000] to look exactly like Ken.
“I want to get the procedures done when I am 18 to improve my appearance and stay with high similarities to the doll,” he said.
"I would need two ribs removed to get a thin waist like the dolls and silicone implants in my arms to resemble Ken’s strong arms.
"Ken doesn't have wrinkles so I would need regular botox to ensure my complexion is always smooth.
"I would like veneers so my smile is perfect like Ken's.
"I also want silicone implants in my bum, arms and a surgical six pack so then it is permanently there like Ken's rather than going to the gym and having to work out.
Felipe’s unique look turns heads in the street and he has even been mistaken for a ‘living statue’.
“People can't stop looking at me,” he said.
“Many even stop me and ask for photos whilst some think I am cosplay.
“It is fun to go out with a full face on - I love seeing people’s reaction.”
