Guy Gets Extensive Plastic Surgery To Look Like An Elf

The dream of becoming a fantasy creature like an elf, dwarf or dragon is now and will always be an impossibility, but if you dream of merely resembling a fantasy creature you're in luck.

Because plastic surgery has advanced to the point where your face can be made over to resemble a cat-man, a lizard or, in this case, an elf.

Luis Padron of Argentine has paid over $35k to become "trans-species" and make his Lord Of The Rings dreams come true:

He has spent more than £25,000 on surgery including liposuction on his jaw, a nose job, full body hair removal and operations to change his eye colour. ...He is planning surgery to make his ears pointed, hair implants for a heart-shaped hairline and a limb lengthening operation to make him 6ft 5in tall.

Mr. Padron fell in love with the fantasy genre during his early teenage years, while struggling with bullies who mocked him because he dyed his hair and had different dress sense.

But by the end of high school, he claimed his quirkiness led to him being admired, which further fuelled his desire to be different.

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

I guess cosplay is no longer enough for some people, but it's still a hell of a lot cheaper!

'Over time things changed, older teens liked me because I was unique and that's what encouraged me to start turning what I felt on the inside into a reality.
