Real Life Dolls: Keeping it Cute

Real Life Dolls are young women who dress like dolls or Manga characters and share make-up advice in YouTube videos. Someof them have become international stars.

Venus Palermo from Switzerland makes herself up to look like a doll - she wants to look child-like and innocent as a statement against what she sees as an overly sexualized world. There's also a movement of young women who undergo cosmetic surgery in order to look as much like Barbie dolls as possible.

A growing number of stonemasons around the world are making interactive headstones featuring QR codes that allow the bereaved to call up memories of their lost loved ones with a Smartphone.

While Asia introduced "Quick Response" (QR) on headstones some time ago, Germany is still trailing behind. The only headstone in the country adorned with a QR code is in a private cemetery in North Rhine Westphalia. It was designed by Andreas Rosenkranz, a Cologne-based stone mason who's campaigning for a more contemporary approach to gravestones.
