It takes all kinds of people to make a world. Not strange then that among us walk some highly unusual human-beings!

With more than 50,000 followers on Instagram, Sonia’s unusual occular birthmark has attracted much attention. The mark around her right iris makes it look a lot bigger than the other, something the beauty enthusiast is really fed up with, commenting: “Please stop asking. First of all it’s rude as f*, secondly mind ya business.”
3. Evita Delmundo

Despite the bullying, she didn’t let her appearance get her down and now at the age of 20 has more instagram followers than she has moles. All inspired by her self-confidence. In fact Evita is now fulfilling one of her childhood dreams, and could well be the next Miss Universe!

The Canada-based 22 year-old was even told by her agent to Photoshop the hairy mole out of her headshots, but Cassandra is proud of her uniqueness.
5. Hairfreaky Longhair
Hairfreaky Longhair’s claim to fame is… Yes, you guessed it, freakishly long hair. He says that the hard part of having such longs locks, is not washing it, but drying it. He has to just sit around for hours as he doesn’t dare use a hairdryer.

8. Aliia Nasyrova
Inspired in part by the hair of fairytale characters, 27-year-old Nasyrova has been growing her hair for over 20 years. “My hair is so heavy, I would compare it to the weight of my cat,” said the Russia-native who copes with the constant attack of internet trolls thanks to the support of her husband.
9. Marika Nagy
