for the tops of the ears

metal clips clipped onto the tops of the ears and linked by elastic [or something stretchy] going over the top of the head to stretch the tops of the ears and over time make the wearer's ears pointy.

Not a bad idea. I've seen some tribes that do crazy things like this (long necks, huge mouths, etc.).
-- NeverDie, Mar 31 2002


Surma tribe does the lip plates and ears, tendency now is for women to somewhat reluctantly do ears, seriously question whether they should do lips - as tradition has dictated. It is a potentially large dowry for elders of bride-to-be for a woman with very large lip plates - the men who are able to wed, and wed frequently - often have as many as 4 wives - One every year until he's tired of having so many wives or running out of cattle - which tends to be the dowry. As one might suspect - it's quite painful to stretch lips. Unsure of Neck Rings (Burma?) - I'll leave that to whomever in this Neck of the woods...

I'll buy if you include training socks to achieve the curly toes too.
-- spartanica, Mar 31 2002


up to a foot longer. sorry no pun intended. makes you wonder what is happening to all the vertebrae?
-- po, Mar 31 2002


Since when in hell have elves had pointy toes? [spartanica]
-- kaz, Mar 31 2002


I'm so confused, [kaz] is accosting [spartanica] about elves having pointy toes and yet [kaz] only mentions curly toes and now [po] is linking to pointy feet . . . . What's next? I need a drink now.

Am I old enough to order drinks here?
-- kaz, Apr 02 2002


if you have pointy feet
-- po, Apr 02 2002


No, but his fingers do.
-- angel, Apr 03 2002


Oh... I thought this would be clip-on ear extensions, like earrings but for the top of your ears. Easier than glueing.
-- herilane, Apr 03 2002


anyone have any luck with this one, my ears are the same shape they were in March.
-- po, Jun 23 2002


are you sure you had them on tight enough?
-- runforrestrun, Jun 23 2002


well they sure pinched me - how much pain for gain?
-- po, Jun 23 2002


it's gotta hurt some....mine have worked so well I'm really looking forward to the next Trekkie convention....
-- runforrestrun, Jun 23 2002


where do you buy these? i have been trying to make my ears pointy forever, so far no luck.
-- Elven_heart7, Apr 15 2003


i'm imagining a world of pointy ears and bells on toes...<contented sigh>
-- igirl, Apr 15 2003


????

Must be a chick thing.
-- FloridaManatee, Apr 16 2003


someone? where do you get these? :-(
-- Elven_heart7, Apr 17 2003


sorry [Elv] but they remain half-baked. except mine, that I made myelf. just call me Spock.
-- po, Apr 17 2003


The neck thing stretches the vertibrae somewhat but mostly it bends the collarbone. I know sooo many people who would buy that, I toast my croissant to you.
-- Lizz612, Apr 17 2003


i'd wear them. i want pointy ears:-) yes, i am a freak. but anyhow, someone told me that they had found something like this on the internet, and i can't find it anywhere. :-( so sad. oh, well. i will continue my search...
-- Elven_heart7, Apr 19 2003


Fascinating captain.
My ears already come to a slight point at the top, does this mean I may be half-elven? Cool!
For this game I'm gonna be a half-elven magic user with a plus one croissant. Speaking of which you could just take the ends off of this one that I'm giving you and paste them to the tops of your ears.

Pointed ears are not all that they are cracked up to be in my humble opinion.
-- The Kat, Apr 19 2003


This is simply one of the best halfbaked inventions on this site.
-- bristolz, Jan 16 2006


Definitely a girl thing <crosses fingers>
-- moomintroll, Jan 16 2006


My father and brother have oddly pointy ears already, but I seem to have missed that that particular gene..now I can be one of the family! [+]
