Argentinian man spends over $100k to look like an elf

Many of us are fans of the fantasy genre but not everyone has taken their interest to the point of physically emulating their favourite character.

Argentinian Luis Padron has spent more than US$75,000 ($102,000) to make himself look like an elf.

Having been bullied as a child, Luis would find his escape through fantasy movies like Labyrinth and The Never Ending Story, reports AcidCow.

He first underwent a US$15,000 surgery to give himself a widow's peak hairline like Dracula.

After that, he spent $60,000 on various other procedures like cheek liposuction, full body hair removal, botox, fillers and skin bleaching to further transform his appearance.

"All of my surgeries are fantasy-related and I've always had a big forehead that bothered me a lot," he said.

"One of the most important parts about being an elf is having long hair, that's why I decided to reshape my hairline to have more hair."

Despite already splashing thousands of dollars on his appearance he still has US$112,000 worth of surgery planned for himself.

They include fang-like dentures, pointed ears, and a V-shaped jawline.

"I want to be an elf, an angel and a fantasy being, my aim is to look inhuman, ethereal, graceful and delicate -- I have my own beauty ideal and want to achieve that no matter what, " he explained.
