See How This Artist Is Giving Bratz Dolls an Empowering Makeover
This artist is transforming the dolls into the likeness of real-life women in order to help inspire young girls. By removing the heavy makeup on the dolls and replacing them with realistic features, she's able to create the likeness of real-life heroines, like girls' education advocate Malala Yousafzai.
Tsao explained her inspiration for the "Mighty dolls" project on Bored Panda: "In this project, I repainted and reclothed the manufactured dolls into the likeness of real, inspiring women – as young girls. As a parent, I’d love for my child to play with a young J.K. Rowling or Malala and have conversations about them."
View her collection of dolls in the gallery above.
