Woman wanting to Look Like a “Giraffe” Finally Removes her Neck Rings after 5 Years

How many of you are enticed with the elongated neck of a giraffe? I am sure if anything, you must’ve found the concept quite fascinating. There is not a lot we can say about it as we humans have quite a short neck compared to that. But a woman, for her love of giraffes, wanted to get a neck as long as theirs.

Soon her quest for having an elongated neck became a reality and she put rings around hers. When she removed the rings after some years the result was quite shocking.



This is how her journey began.

At the age of 25, she decided to give tribute to her favorite animal in the world. She decided to elongate her neck.

Her obsession with the giraffe.

“I never go anywhere without my giraffe purse.”

Yes, that’s a purse you are looking at.

She decided to put some rings around her neck.

For the purpose of elongating her neck, she kept on adding more rings around it.

She was inspired by the women the Kayan people in South-East Asia.

There’s a reason why these women wear coils around their necks.

They wear it so that the women of their tribe look less attractive and people from other tribes don’t turn them into slaves.

It looks a bit dangerous.

It does nothing to elongate the neck actually. It simply puts pressure on your collarbone.

She decided to add rings to her neck.

The process was difficult for her because her body has already matured and hence, it had no more growing to do. She decided to take it on slowly.

Quickly she started to gain fame.

You know you are going viral when Ripley’s Believe It Or Not features you.

And soon enough she had her own comic character.

How many of you can say that?

As you can see, the number of coils around her neck has seen a ‘progress’.

However, the weight of it was difficult for her to handle.

She had almost 15 rings around her neck by the end of it which weighed almost 15 pounds. It doesn’t sound a lot but when you have to wear them around the clock, it’s torturous.

The rings started to take over her life.

“I couldn’t function properly as a long neck woman with fifteen rings around my neck in the United States of America.”

Gradually, everything started to revolve around the rings.

“I couldn’t function properly as a long neck woman with fifteen rings around my neck in the United States of America.”

Her along with her spirit animals – giraffes.

You simply cannot beat her at the ring game.

Her neck appears to be so elongated in this picture, we are shocked.

Sydney knows her most compatible photoshoot partner is a giraffe.

And she refuses to give up on them.

Her obsession with long neck was becoming scarier.

It was obviously affecting her day to day life as well.

But she refused to give up on the idea.

In fact, she somehow managed to pull off the rings.

With such charm and seductiveness, we are enticed.

Even her selfies were too amazing.

She even fell in love with the giraffe print.

There is a reason she became as popular as she is right now.

In her own words…

In the end, she realized that it wasn’t worth it. The rings were making it very difficult for her to carry on with life.

‘Unless you are willing to completely isolate yourself and you’re a trust fund baby and don’t ever need to leave the house, don’t ever need to drive, then maybe you can pull it off.’

Sydney has severe bruising around her neck which is quite understandable seeing that she wore the rings for five years.

After removing the rings, her neck was very weak.

However, she is recovering very quickly.

Her neck is definitely longer than before.

Enjoying her longer neck she clicks her selfies whenever possible, updating her Instagram followers.

Amazingly, she was 6 months pregnant when she took this picture!

She was blessed with a beautiful baby daughter.

Aren’t they the cutest?

Here’s a picture of the happy couple napping together.

She even posted a picture on her feed saying what she would have looked like as a book.

Now, that’s a book we will want to read.

One thing is for sure though, this woman is absolutely gorgeous.

Have a look at how she transformed after taking off her rings.
