A woman who calls herself “The Living Cartoon” had her six ribs removed to achieve her idol, Jessica Rabbit’s waist.
Pixiee Fox, 31, a model and body modification artist, spent $8,000 on the procedure to have an unbelievable 14inch waist.
Fox, a former electrician, said that having her ribs removed had always been her “dream”.
“People often come up to me and say, ‘Don’t take this the wrong way, but you look like a cartoon,’” Fox told The Sun. “But for me, that’s a compliment, that’s what I want to achieve.”
“Those cartoon characters represent the idealization of the female body,” Fox explained. “I want to have the tiny waist, the butt, big boobs, big eyes, and a really pretty face. Having my ribs removed was just another step in achieving that ideal.”
Fox underwent a five-hour surgery to remove six of her ribs.
Fox added that Jessica Rabbit and Aurora from Sleeping Beauty are her beauty icons.
The body modification artist has over 485,000 followers on Instagram wherein she documents her transformation. Fox also added that her fans have actually donated to fund her surgeries.
Apart from having her ribs removed, Fox also spent more than $100,000 on different plastic surgery procedures such as liposuction, four nose jobs, and four breast enhancements.
Fox said that she also wears a corset 24hrs a day to shrink her waist more and achieve her perfect hourglass figure, as well as working out for up to five hours daily.
“I’m not unhappy with the way I look now,” she said. “I just enjoy tweaking it”.
“I see myself as a body-modification artist,” Fox added. “This is my job. This is what I do and I’m going to keep on sculpting.”
“There are six billion people on the planet,” she said. “Why should everyone look the same? It’s boring.”
