Have you ever wished you could be a fantasy race?
I remember watching Lord of the Rings when I was younger, and my jaw nearly dropped when I saw how amazing the elves looked! I was ten years old, and foolishly hoped that if I pinched the ends of my ears enough, they would end up looking like the elf ears from that movie.
(All that resulted in was very red, sore ears though!)
That fascination of elves never really went away though, and I still am absolutely obsessed with them in many video games, movies, or games like Dungeons & Dragons. I love all of the different fantasy races though. Elves, dwarves, hobbits, dragonborns, argonians... the list goes on and on. How fun would it be to have such diverse people in reality? People already look quite different throughout the world, of course, but no one (at least that I'm aware of!) have the ability breath fire, fly, have long pointed ears, or dragon scales covering their body.
My fascination with fantasy races and creatures probably comes from my childhood, which was full of books and video games, both of which taking me to a fantasy realm quite frequently.
So when I saw a certain pair of ears at Anime Iowa 2013, I simply had to buy them.
I have to say, I feel quite awesome when I have these on. I wish I could wear them out. Well, I suppose I technically could wear them out, but I'm certain there would be quite a few people pointing and laughing. (Then again, why should I care what people think?)
This is what they look like when not on an ear. They're very light weight and comfortable, and quite cute. I remember that they come in many different sizes and colors, but I can't for the life of me remember what stand I bought them from.
This is how it sits on the ear. When my hair is down, it covers up the parts up front, so you can't see them. I think it's quite cute, even though I'm not sure when I'm ever going to have the chance to actually wear it.
Would you wear something like this in public?
What's your favorite fantasy creature/race?
