This Artist Removes The Make-Up From Dolls And Turns Them Into Inspiring Real-Life Women

0

Recently, artist Wendy Tsao discovered the work of Sonya Singh, who removes the make-up from Bratz dolls to give them a more natural look. Tsao decided to take this idea further, coming up with the idea of taking dolls ’cleaned up’ by Singh and turning them into models of inspiring real-life women. Tsao’s idea here is influenced by the belief that toys like this can have a huge influence on the worldview of young children.

This has to be one of the best ideas we’ve seen in a very long time. Fantastic work!

’…The dolls we find in toy stores today are often licenced Disney characters or the heroines of Hollywood blockbuster movies that capitalize on the pull of fantasy, fictional characters to young consumers.’

1
Malala Yousafzai, Pakistani activist, youngest Nobel Prize laureate, campaigns for women’s access to education around the world.

’But there are real-life people who are heroes too, with inspiring stories of courage, intelligence, strength and uniqueness. Could children learn about and be inspired by them through toys?’

2
Frida Kahlo, Mexican artist best known for her self-portraits.

’If children find out about these inspirational women through toys, maybe they will be encouraged to copy their example of strength and intelligence.’

3
Roberta Bondar, first Canadian female astronaut.

’This is why I started to scrub off the make-up on these dolls and gave them new outfits to make them look like real-life, inspirational women.’

4
Jane Goodall, British primatologist, UN Messenger of Peace.

5
Waris Dirie, Somali model, author, and social activist.

’As a parent, I’d love for my child to play with a young J.K. Rowling or Malala and have conversations about them.’

6
J.K. Rowling, British novelist best known for Harry Potter series.
