25-Year-Old Spends Over $30,000 To Transform Himself Into A ‘Trans-Species’ Elf


Aesthetics and appearances are commonly blasted on mainstream media these days. Whether it is a gorgeous model walking down the runway sporting an expensive handbag or a good looking actor promoting a ‘special’ cologne, beautiful people (at least on the outside) are promoted and objectified in order to sell products. That is why so many individuals try to alter their appearance whether through the use of plastic surgery, liposuction or anabolic steroids.

But this one individual doesn’t want a bustier figure or a set of washboard abs, he wants to become mythical.

Read on to find out more on the story of Luis Padron.

Luis Padron is a 25-year-old male from Buenos Aires, Argentina. He has admitted to being obsessed with looking like an elf.

Luis, in an interview, has said that: ‘I want to be an elf, an angel and a fantasy being, my aim is to look inhuman, ethereal, graceful and delicate.’

Luis originally began his transformation with cosplay but he says it just ‘wasn’t enough.’ He said that he ‘wanted to change to become my own perception of beauty.’

Soon after watching the films he began bleaching his hair and skin in order to look more like an elf. He currently spends approximately $5,000 a month on specific creams, treatments, ointments and dyes.

Luis first got into fantasy after experiencing bullying at school. But it wasn’t long until people admired him for his uniqueness instead of mocking him.

Some of the procedures that he has gone through includes liposuction on his jaw, a nose job, full body hair removal and procedures to change his eye color.

Luis identifies as a ‘trans-species.’ This is defined as being trapped in the wrong body, but not based on gender rather on species.

He said that: ‘I consider myself trans-species. In the same way transgender people feel, I need to become how I feel inside.’

With his signature bright blue eyes accompanied with long flowing blond hair, his resemblance to an elf is eerily similar. However, his most recent post on Instagram postulates: ‘have you ever felt like an alien inside?’

He has stated that people have always been staring at him ‘since [he] was a teenager’ so it’s become common to him now. In fact, Luis actually revels in the fact that others stare at him and he doesn’t mind what they think.

He is hoping to get further surgeries that include getting his ears pointed, hair implants for a heart shaped hairline and limb lengthening procedures that would make him 6’5”.

Luis details the procedures by saying: ‘I want to have my ears cut to become pointy like an elf’s, my jaw to look sharper like a diamond, a face lift and an eye lift to give my eyes a cat-like shape.’

Luis works as a model and also has a side  job selling cosplay merchandise. The separate incomes help him pay for the expensive procedures.
