Couple spends $300,000 to turn themselves into Barbie and Ken
If you're in a relationship, odds are you've been trying to come up with the perfect couple costume for Halloween. You might have a favorite partnership from a movie or TV show that you're just dying to recreate with your beau for annual, adult dress-up day.
For example, my fiancé and I are huge Twin Peaks fans, and are thus creating a Detective Cooper and Audrey look for All Hallows Eve. However, while I love that show emphatically, I definitely wouldn't want to dress and act like Audrey for the rest of my life.
But maybe that's just because I'm not as dedicated to her as Anastasia Reskoss, 20, and Quentin Dehar, 23, are to Barbie and Ken. So far, they've had 15 surgeries between them to look just like their favorite plastic couple. They're even planning to legally change their names to Barbie and Ken. Now that's what I call dedication to a couple costume!
Reskoss and Dehar already seemed to have Barbie dream lives when they met back in 2013 at a boat party in Saint Tropez. But according to Dehar, the dream wasn't complete until they found each other (and got gobs of plastic surgery, of course). He told the Daily Mail, "It was so straightforward. We both knew we had met a partner who was going to enable us to become the Ken and Barbie we had always dreamed of being." Anyone else feeling particularly icky right now?
They (or really, their parents) have already spent over $300,000 on surgeries to look like their Barbie counterparts. Reskoss says her obsession started as a little girl when she had over 100 Barbies. Dehar also had all the "Ken accessories" and loves his "billionaire lifestyle."
Reskoss got her first plastic surgery at the tender age of 17 — a nose job, which was paid for by her parents. The very next year, she had surgery to take her boobs from a C to an E. She told the Daily Mail, "I felt so much better after my first nose job and boob job — it was like having armor." She claims her parents were very happy about her nose job, but said they were not pleased with her decision to get new boobs. However, that didn't stop them from continuing to enable her newfound plastic surgery addiction.
She said, "At the end of the day, my parents would rather have a teenage daughter who takes care of her appearance than one who takes drugs."
Once Reskoss and Dehar realized their dreams were the same, they got serious about their transformations. Aside from the expensive plastic surgery procedures, they pushed each other into strict diet and workout regiments. They also claim they no longer drink alcohol, smoke or do drugs.
Now, they've each had second nose jobs, countless fillers and botox injections and Reskoss has taken her size E breasts to GGs. She claims, "We complement each other. He's made me a better person and he's my best friend."
Well, if by "better person" she means mostly plastic on the inside and out, then I'd have to agree.
