A woman from Singapore could not afford cosmetic surgery. As a cheaper alternative solution, she decided to 3D print herself a new face to make herself look more like her idol – Kim Kardashian.
Being inspired by the recent news of a Latvian lady who spent £30,000 on cosmetic surgery to make herself look like a blow up doll, as well as the Russian lady who spent $800,000 to become the world’s first real life Barbie, 29-year-old Kee Yum Siap always dreamt of altering her looks.
“I love how she looks, it’s just so natural. I think everyone should look like her,” she gushed.
When she was told that it was possible to change the way you look without plastic surgery via exercise and make-up, she scoffed. “Ain’t nobody got time for that!” she exclaimed, “I want to wake up and immediately look like Kim Kardashian without having to do anything at all.”
However, being unwilling to spend the money, she engaged 3D services to print a new face based on a photograph of Kim Kardashian, and stuck it on with elephant glue. After all when in doubt, just use elephant glue, it solves everything.
“I know you cannot tell I’m smiling, because I can’t move my cheeks anymore. But I swear, I’m very very happy. Having Kim Kardashian’s face is a dream come true!”
However, the dream does not end there. Ms. Kee has also revealed that once she saves up enough money, she will also print herself a new backside to balance her drinks on.
Seriously Satire is a biweekly series that is purely satirical and pokes fun at some ongoing issues in the world. It is not meant to be taken seriously. Two weeks ago, we made fun of the notions that ‘bigger is better’ and ‘size matters’ – which most men may disagree with anyway. This week’s column is directed at the people who go all out to change their looks to look entirely like someone else. In the wise words of Tina Fey: “The person closest to actually achieving this (perfect) look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes.”
