Remember the last time you scrolled through your Instagram feed and thought that the world is unfair? Looking at perfect Insta-shots is known to seriously damage your self-image, but it’s easy to forget that none of it is actually real. Influencers spend 40 hours a day staging, taking trillions of shots, and retouching the pics until they have something to show their followers.

But one Thai model knows there’s a whole different reality behind every Insta-perfect shot, and she’s not afraid to show it. Vienadoll has been making hilarious "Instagram vs. Reality" collages for a while now (see Bored Panda's previous article), and her 178k followers can’t get enough of it.

It turns out, for her fancy pics, Vienna uses software that fine-tunes the image by adding a touch-up to her eyes, nose, and mouth. Meanwhile, the reality shots were taken with a simple camera without photo-editing. The result is… well, you gotta see it, but it will definitely make the illusion of "perfection" explode like a balloon.

Bored Panda reached out to Vienna, the fashion model and social media influencer from Thailand who said that she definitely gained a lot of media popularity thanks to her Instagram vs. Reality photo series. “I got more work and was invited to appear on television about my Instagram vs. reality post on Twitter,” she said.

Vienna started modeling when she got noticed by an agent from a modeling agency. She took a photo with one girl who posted it on social media. Immediately, the girl’s agent contacted Vienna and invited her to try her hand at modeling.

At the time Vienna got scouted, she only had 10k followers, but her Twitter audience grew exponentially with time. The Thai influencer told us that her audience kept rapidly growing and now there are a whopping 781.4k followers on her Twitter and 178k followers on her Instagram.

When asked if her audience is still growing, she said yes, indeed, but “not as much as it did before.” It may be attributed to the fact that Vienna is currently doing much less Instagram vs. Reality photos and is mainly working on her YouTube channel, and posting photos from her everyday life on Instagram.

My younger brother called me "Monkey Toes" growing up because I could pick up anything with my feet. So I can totally relate.

The girl in the first pics shows no emotions in anything she does. It's sad really.

Who reads a book like that? I stretch out on the couch, taking no thought about my posture.

What's going on with her hand (1st pic)? I'm not making fun of her. I'm just sincerely confused.
