Sadly, I think there are people who really do this. But I'm not going to look at the pictures.
Those pics look pretty fucking real.
The fact that she has to use those tape things to give her ears the proper elf shape means this was probably a very very bad idea. I'd like to see what her ears look like without it.
The great thing is, you can give yourself perfectly realistic elf ears in about 45 minutes' time using less than $10 in materials. Theatre make-up isn't that hard, really.
And then, at the end of the night, they come off -- no stitches!
(Also, I don't get why this doesn't have the 'nerd' tag...)
i'm not sure how i feel about the cut n' stitch elf ears, but girls with naturally elfin ears are hott.
@2 I'm sure the tape is to keep the stress on the joined tissue to a minimum until it is fully healed.
Personally I use the latex ear caps/spirit gum/makeup method myself. But you know what, I think given a choice between elf ears or a tramp stamp tattoo, I'd probably regret the ears less than the tattoo when I'm 80.
We're actually having this done for our 3 week old. If you wait too long their ears aren't soft enough to reshape and it won't look that elfin, so it's something parents need to do for their babies.
*sigh* Yes, it's SO very alt to condemn what people do to their own bodies. Keep up the good work, guys.
Alt? Alt? Really? "Alt"?
I don't know if it's Alt, but it's definitely hilarious.
They are real, and no worse than the hipsters with the African coins in their ears, or split tongues, or lumps implanted under their skin, etc.
Shannon Laratt covered this mod in Bizarre Magazine a few issues back. You think that's hardcore? There are people out there piercing their eyelids, and tattooing their EYEBALLS!!!
The contours of the ear have evolved to shape the incoming sound. Part of our ability to sense where in the 360 degree spectrum a sound is originating from comes from the subtle variations in tone thus created.
Fake tits are a far greater abomination then elf ears.
Elf ears? Really? Now, are these people as big of dumb asses as those hipsters that put those stooopid fucking earlobe-strechy-coin crap in their ears? When those hipsters hit 30 or 40 with the droopy, goofy ear lobes and elf ears - we'll see who wins the biggest dumb ass contest.
@13: Droopy ears look stupid at any age, but elf ears are actually pretty cute. In fact, I kind of prefer them.
P.S. It's said that elf ears actually improve your hearing, because the pointed tips more efficiently channel sound (that's why most animals have pointed ears).
You know, a troop of like 30 elves could completely take over Capitol Hill. Easy. And they wouldn't have to be archers. Just armed with oaken staffs and some magic spells. Easy.
One of my uncles has naturally pointy ears, little "buds" on the far end of the curve of the ears. V. funny-looking :)
You forgot to tell them to get off your lawn!
