R.I.P Hipster Barbie: You Taught Us How To Be #Authentic

"Be Real . Be Unique. Be Authentic . Be Humble." - Hipster Barbie

Socality Barbie (a.k.a Hipster Barbie) quit the internet this week. In just over one year’s time, Hipster Barbie amassed 1.3 Million followers by photographing highly composed scenes with Barbie to illustrate the ridiculousness of several Instagram trends. The young woman behind the account, Darby Cisneros revealed her face in a final post announcing that she would be closing the account and identifying her intentions.

Check out her last post and some of her best work below. From everyone at Indie88, we will miss you Hipster Barbie and the incredible wisdom you bestowed upon us all.

Hey guys, my name is Darby Cisneros and I am the creator of SocalityBarbie. I just wanted to introduce myself and thank all of you for enjoying this account. I started SB 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 but because of that it has open the door to a lot of great discussions like: how we choose to present ourselves online, the insane lengths many of us go to to create the perfect Instagram life, and calling into question our authenticity and motives. It's been a blast running this account but I believe SB's work here is done. I will be leaving this account open for a while for people still want to look through and enjoy it. Again, thank you for following along. If anyone has any questions or just want to say hi feel free to email me at socalitybarbie@gmail.com ✌️#RIP (account NOT for sale)
