Photos: Barbie's Biggest Fan Splashes Out £55,000 Turning Home Into Doll Shrine

She fell in love with Barbie aged 15 after buying a doll-themed lunchbox. Now, nearly 20 years on, Azusa Sakamoto might be Barbie's biggest fan.

The 34-year-old nail artist has splashed out a staggering £55,000 turning her home in Los Angeles, US, into a shrine for the plastic doll. She owns 145 Barbie figures, 40 pairs of shoes and 60 bags, as well as an impressive range of Barbie-themed home accessories.

And that's not all - Azusa even dresses like her idol by donning bright pink clothes and fake nails adorned with Barbie's face.

She has also recently coloured her hair pink and goes by the name Azusa Barbie - but insists she is not trying to be the famous doll. Instead, she says she simply loves the brand.

Azusa said: "I'm Barbie's biggest fan - everyone thinks I'm crazy but I don't care.

"Everything I own has to be Barbie, I absolutely love it."
