We’ve heard of women who try their darndest to look like Barbie Dolls. Some have been known to go to the extent of having major surgeries to alter their bodies in a way that will get them closer to the physical features of the tall, blonde doll with a tiny waist and curvy bust and hips.
But there is another woman who is just as dedicated to her look just as much as all the Barbie Doll lovers out there. Her name is Jade Smith and she is on a mission to look exactly like a porcelain doll. Proving that she will spare no expense, Jade has already spent £18,000 to get her on the way to looking like the real life “Lolita.”
Her doll-like outfits alone have cost her £10,000 and they consist of items such as a frilly pink dress with knee-high socks and a furry pink headband that wraps around her hair. Lolita’s hair is platinum blonde and she has a set of full eyelashes which are another costly thing that needs to be maintained in order to keep up with the appearance.
Jade has set certain budgets aside for monthly spending to stay on track with her appearance. For example, she has a £20 glitter budget. Evidently, Lolita has some sparkly attire.
She has gone so far as to wear contact lenses that aren’t needed. She wears them so that they expand the shape of her eyes, making her look even more like Lolita. At times, she gets up at 4 am to get ready and make sure she has her look perfected.
Seems like a lot of work and money to keep up with trying to look like someone else, but Jade is truly obsessed.
“I’ve spent around £10,000 just on my clothes,” said Jade. “I normally get my clothing shipped in from Japan and Korea.”
The clothes and makeup aren’t the only things that Jade needs to look like Lolita, though. She has loads of accessories that go along with the character.
“I have roughly around 40 pairs of shoes and I have around 40 key chains. The money has also gone into my toy collection.”
You would never guess that Jade is an adult if you walked into her room. She has a Care-bear lined bed and shelves that house dolls, Disney characters, Hello Kitty and My Little Pony figurines. The room is covered in pink, looking much more like a little girl’s than a grown adults.
Jade, who lives in her parent’s home in a loft, gets a grief from her family occasionally.
“My family calls me a hoarder and they really wish I would downsize and become more minimalistic,” said Jade. “They wish I would wear something a bit normal but they just accept me for who I am now.”
Jade admits that she would wear head to toe pink every day but her retail assistant job keeps her from doing so. Instead, she has to accessorize with pink and wear mostly black when she is on the job.
“I got in trouble once at work for dressing differently. I have over 20 keychains on my phone and my phone fell out of my pocket during a shift. The only casual clothing I own is jeggings, which I wear for work,” she said.
In the future, Jade plans on taking it up a notch and going for surgery to get her even closer to the “Lolita Look.”
