An Ontario woman never gave up on her love of fantasy characters. The desire to be a real-life elf came partially true for her after a rather quick surgical procedure.
The Huffington Post revealed on Tuesday that the 23-year-old model Melynda Moon paid surgeons to give her ears a pointed look because of her obsession with the mythical creatures.
Moon spend the equivalent of $409.23 to have doctors cut and skin the cartilage of her ears to create points that resembled those of elves from books like “Lord of the Rings”.
She told the International Business Times that she has admired the elven look since she was a teenager and would alter photos of herself to achieve pointed ears.
"When I tell them they are real, they look pretty confused as if they are waiting for me to say 'just kidding' - but I am not,” she said in the report.
She had the operation in 2011 which left her ears swollen for a few days, but eventually left the appearance of points like those of the fantasy characters.
Moon also had an implant put into her hand that resembles a triangular symbol seen in the video game “The Legend of Zelda”.
Other interesting cosmetic surgeries are one-of-a-kind.
A woman in New York got a piece of platinum put into her eyeball in November. It is known as Safesight jewelry according to Fox NY.
The implant cost Lucy Luckayanko $3,000 for the surgery, which has not been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
