If you could become an elf, would you do it? You might argue that elves do not exist, but one man has spent thousands upon thousands of dollars on surgeries, hair removal, creams, dyes and bleaches in a determined attempt to transform himself into one.
Twenty-five-year-old Luis Padron of Buenos Aires, Argentina says he “became obsessed with the world of elves, angels and fantasy beings after being bullied as a child.” Now he is spending about $5,000 a month so that he can permanently look like an elf, and he has told the press that “I consider myself trans-species.” Body modification has become one of the hottest global trends in recent years, but is this a case where someone has taken it way too far?
When the world of fantasy becomes more important than reality to someone, they can do some things that may seem really strange to the rest of us. According to the Daily Mail, Padron has spent an extraordinary amount of money in order become the elf he has always wanted to be:
He now has a £4,000-a-month ritual applying specialist creams, dyes, treatment and SPF 100 sunscreen.
He has almost 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 color.
You would think all of that would be enough, but Padron has even bigger plans for the future.
