There is a certain mysticism that accompanies long pointed ears.  Although this physical trait is most strongly associated with the elven race (Legend of Zelda; Banner of the Stars), it has also been embraced by the anime community to bestow grace and beauty to other non-elven races (Sesshoumaru from Inuyasha; the Herons from Fire Emblem).

The average cosplayer can easily obtain prosthetic elf ears but the quality will depend upon the source.  Although seasonal Halloween shops sell plastic elf ears, the most natural-looking elf ears are made from latex and can easily be painted to match your desired skin tone.  We recommend that you check out the large selection of latex ears at Aradani Costumes as well as their article on how to wear and care for your ears.

Remember to purchase spirit gum adhesive and spirit gum remover in order to comfortably attach your ears.  These can be purchased anywhere theatrical makeup is sold.
