Man spends thousands dollar to make himself look exactly like an elf

People spend thousands ways just to make their skin look fairer, their bodies look skinnier, and for some, to look like the person or ‘character’ they wish to look like.

Plastic surgery is everywhere. It is readily available, and people are drawn more to it. But how far would you go for beauty?

25-year-old Luis Padron, from Buenos Ares, Agentina claimed that his peers would mock him for looking different—as he would often dye his hair and wear unusual clothes. He was often bullied and ridiculed, and escaped that world through watching fantasy movies.

He said: ‘I was bullied as a child and as an escape I would submerge myself in movies like Labyrinth and The NeverEnding Story, as well as other fantasy tales.’

Despite being bullied because of his choice of clothes and looks, Luis continued to dress the way he wanted to, and ultimately became a cosplayer. It was until his love for things extraordinary has reached its peak and he decided to fully transform into a fantasy being—an elf.

He started bleaching his hair and skin, before undergoing his first surgery at the age of 20. He has since spent more than USD 47,000 (£36,000) on cheek liposuction, a rhinoplasty, full body hair removal, Botox and fillers to completely transform his appearance.

He even used his own blood for a procedure which transformed his hairline to give him a distinctive ‘widow’s peak’, seen in many depictions of elves and vampires.

Luis said: ‘All of my surgeries are fantasy-related and I’ve always had a big forehead that bothered me a lot. One of the most important parts about being an elf is having long hair, that’s why I decided to reshape my hairline for a more fantasy look and have more hair.

‘I found someone who could give me the heart-shape and vampiric hairline I wanted and I had a transplant in my forehead.

‘The shape is like Dracula’s hair and using my own blood will make the hair grow healthier.’

He added: ‘Because I want to become a fantasy being, one of the most distinctive parts of an elf and other creatures is that they have extremely long hair, look healthy and look very young.’

Luis says he still has £68,000 worth of surgery planned, including fang-like dentures, pointed ears, a v-shaped jawline and nose surgery.
