The man who has become an elf

He was bullied at school, so he decided to become an ELF: He spends 5,000 euros a month for maintaining that look, and his life has changed completely.

Luis Padron, 25, from Buenos Ares, Argentina, is obsessed with the world of Elves, angels and all sorts of beings from the fantasy world. Due to his obsession, he has spent 30,000 euros on plastic surgeries in order to look like a real elf.

Luis does not hide unfortunate events that have marked his childhood and have left traces on his growing-up. This guy talks openly about being bullied as a child and wanting to get out of his own skin when he was just a teenage boy. For this reason, he started to bleach his hair and his skin and slowly began the transformation of his body. These rituals of his have become numerous, so he now spends around 5,000 euros per month in order to keep the process going.

He states that he doesn’t care what other people say about him and that he is generally not upset by other people’s comments. Padron is used to the fact that people consider him as a weird person, which actually started from his childhood.

‘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,’ Luis added.

‘I want to have my ears cut to become pointy like an elves, my jaw to look more sharp like a diamond, a face-lift and an eye-lift to give my eyes a cat-like shape.

‘I am also consider having muscle implants too.

‘There’s also a surgery to make you taller and I will remove four of my ribs too, so that I can shape my waist to make it thinner.’

He also explained that this transformation of his started when he was just a child, and it was often the reason he was a target of bullying at the time. He also adds that due to his persistence, he has later also become a target of worship among his peers, which encouraged him to continue this long-term and highly expensive process.

What changed his appearance the most is nose surgery, then liposuction on his jaw, removing all hairs from his body, as well as the color change of his eyes.
