    Life-Size Barbie: Statuesque and Startling!

    What kind of woman is this?! Believe it or not, it’s Barbie, blown up to human scale.

    This version of the blonde, not-so-bombshell was created by anorexia survivor and Hamiliton College student Galia Slayen (pictured) for display during her school’s National Eating Disorders Awareness Week. WebMD contacted Ms. Slaven today and for her permission to share the image and ask for your feedback.
