We have another offering in the "Living Doll" debate, this one featuring teenage Venus Palermo, also known as VenusAngelic. This young lady has perfected the art of dress-up, looking more and more doll-like in each video. The question is if Venus Palermo is real and if she is deserving of the attention she receives.
The best place to see Venus is on her YouTube channel. Here you’ll find strangely-presented instructional videos, or footage of her dancing around like a typical teenager. An odd characteristic about her videos is that her voice-overs are in an unusual accent that is annoys some people. It also seems apparent that she is using some sort of contact lens in order to have a more anime-like appearance.
There are certainly many issues in these “living doll” stories, such as if the person is real, or if there is a controlling parent fueling the success. One must wonder how long Venus will be able to continue her girl-like videos, and if she will be able to parlay her current success into something long term. Those issues, however, are beyond the scope of this article. Here were merely want to present to you some of the most doll-like photos of Venus Palermo, and let you decide for yourself if she is worthy of the attention.
How does Venus achieve this doll-like look? If you watch a few of her videos, she reveals many of her hair and makeup secrets. There are obviously a few other things that contribute such as contact lenses, lighting, angles of photography (note that all of her pictures feature her looking up at he camera). If you see Venus outside of her controlled environment, she looks more like a teenager dressed up like a doll, as seen in this screenshot from a television interview.
You can see the full interview with Venus Palermo and her mother in the video below. Do you think her accent is real, or is it part of her act? Note that she and her mother appear to have completely different accents.
