Britney Spears is one of the most influential pop icons of the late 90s. She has been idolized and adored by millions of fans worldwide. Despite her singing career being on a decline, there are still people out there who dream of either meeting the star or becoming her, literally.
One particular fan of hers named Kody Hays went to a great extent in his desperate attempt to achieve the pop icon’s appearance. Kody was originally born a male but later in his life he started experiencing confusion about gender. At age 12 he stunned the religious people in a small town in Ohio by attending a school party dressed as Britney wearing a skin-tight latex red costume similar to the one the singer sported in the ‘Ooops!…I did it again’ video.
When he turned 15 his parents sent him to a doctor who diagnosed the boy with gender dysphoria and prescribed regular female hormone therapy. Eventually, as Kody grew up, he completed his transformation and changed his name to Kara.
But the gender switch was not enough. Kara wanted to look exactly like her idol Britney so she decided to invest the fortune of $100,000 in her appearance. She went through difficult and grueling plastic surgery over the course of 14 hours to have breast implants and facial reconstruction done.
Now people complement Kara, who is also an aspiring actress, on her looks and tell her that they see Britney when they look at her.
