Hipster Barbie, also known as Socality Barbie to her 1.3 million followers on Instagram, and inspiration for countless life goals around the world, died Wednesday. She was 22 weeks old.
After posting 136 selfies in the redwoods, at the foggy lake, with her lumbersexual boyfriend, Kent, and in a bubble bath, Socality Barbie's creator, Oregon-based photographer Darby Cisneros, posted an actual, human selfie with her famous Barbie doll, admitting that she started the character as "a way to poke fun at all the Instagram trends that I thought were ridiculous. Never in 1 million years did I think it would receive the amount of attention that it did."
Cisneros received many proposals from companies to feature their products in posts, but naturally turned them down, according to TMZ. She says she'll keep the account open for a while, but "I believe SB's work here is done."
Socality's exit is another big loss for the Instagram-model-following community; Australian model Essena O'Neill shuttered her social media accounts this week after posting behind-the-scenes admissions that it's all a ruse and life is harder than she made it look.
As for Socality Barbie, it seems she left as quickly as she appeared -- as any good hipster does.
#Neverstopexploring, Socality Barbie. Wherever you are.
