A Brazilian real-life Ken doll has passed away after a five-month-long battle against leukemia. Celso Santebanes, 20, spent over $44,000 dollars on plastic surgery to turn himself into a human Ken doll. His transformation began when he was still sixteen years old.

He first became famous when he was on a talk show in Sao Paulo. He started to charge $15,000 for his VIP appearances.
Celso has loved dolls since he was a child and his family had always told him he looked like one, which is where he got the inspiration to turn himself into a real-life version of Ken.
He changed his last name to Santebanes after the name of his favorite character on a Mexican TV show. After he was diagnosed with leukemia, he came out with his own line of Celso Dolls. Unfortunately, he passed away at a hospital after contracting pneumonia.
