Forget about Mattel’s. This is the Real Barbie Mexicana

Mexican native Omar Ariel Cortés has created a Facebook page showcasing a world in which Mattel’s famous Barbie doll leaves her magical world to join a more sinister one: the world of drug dealing, breast cancer, single motherhood, prostitution and migration, mostly from a Mexican perspective.

I do not know this guy, but I think some of these images are quite powerful. Besides, they are much more real than Mattel’s now infamous Mexican Barbie.

    Hey, I’d like to give a shout out to all the alcoholic women of Queretaro! How come I can’t find any of you? Where do you hang out? Harry’s? Alquimia? Margarita Blue? C’mon ladies, I’m desperate here!
