Only rated 5 so my review won’t be deleted

Okay I know a lot of people really like this game , but I only rated it five stars so my review wasn’t deleted , it really deserves 2 or 1 star , the only reason people like this game is because they have no idea how it once was , it was once one of the finest games I owned , about three or four years ago , you didn’t have to pay for every song but two , and you you used to have all the songs , I get it I mean the creators had to make money some how , but they didn’t do it the right way , this used to be a great game me and my older sister would play , and sometimes our cousins would play to ! It used to be all free and I suppose if you want to make money this was the easy choice the creators didn’t care about what the kids who where there first supporters feel , when they didn’t have to pay , I don’t know about a lot of you but my family isn’t rich and we can’t afforded to buy all the songs , why don’t they just try to sell like at most 3 or 4 songs instead of everything , we were there first supporters and it’s disappointing how they could just charge kids who don’t know what there doing just to see a face dance to some songs it was disappointing when I finally got this again to find out I had to pay for almost every song except two !! COME ON CREATORS I never would of thought people could be so selfish but that’s what is happening today , sorry to others who were in my same situation

Fantastic app👍🏻

This app is great! You can make up to 5 elves. First take a picture of the person you want to make an elf (you can also use old photos) then alter your photo so it will fit on the elf, next dance! After you use a face once you can click on My Faces to use it again. My Faces holds 20 of your most recently used faces. This app is so funny and I recommend making elves of your pets, it is hilarious! It’s also really funny to take pics of celebrities and making them elves! I’ve also done it with Harry Potter characters😂 Great app for family gatherings around Christmas, it gets the whole family laughing. Elf Yourself comes with 2 free dances, Hip Hop Shop is always available, then there is 1 dance you can download. I think it’s about every week they switch it up so Hip Hop Shop is still available but they give you a new dance to download, but this also means the dance you download a week before is no longer available( but this does not mean you won’t ever be able to use it again) They also have Hanukkah dances🕎 Make sure to get this app before Christmas (or at any time really) Love this app so much!!!! Merry Christmas (it’s 2 days away!!!!) Now go elf yourself! 🎅🏼

Thank you Shadowheart warrior cat for a wonderful review! Reviews like this and users like you are what drive us to continue to make Elf Yourself better :) To add to to your review, we change the free dance everyday, so check back to Elf Yourself daily to enjoy a different dance each day. Be sure you have internet connected to your device when you check Elf Yourself daily. This is how the app knows what dance is set to "Free" for the day. Happy Elfing!

Softonic review

You can give your usual season’s greeting a more holiday feel with ElfYourself. This multimedia application allows you and four others to star in a series of personalized videos. The app basically works as a video editing software with pre-made augmented reality filters that you can use to spread holiday cheer. It is very easy to use and even allows you to share the videos you capture on social media. Don’t expect it to be a perfect app, though, as ElfYourself comes with a few drawbacks.

Elf up

ElfYourself comes with a fun yet straightforward interface. Upon launching, you can choose whether you want to take a picture or upload one from your gallery. You also have the option to get photos from your Facebook and Instagram. There is also the My Faces library, where the app keeps 20 of your previously-uploaded or captured pictures that you can use whenever you want.

Once you have the picture, you can then position your face to get the perfect fit. You can add up to five elves for your video or go solo. By clicking the Let’s Dance button, you can choose which of the songs you want to use. ElfYourself offers 19 songs, which are a mix of popular songs and Christmas tunes. However, not all of them are free—only two of the dances are. You have the option to buy the dances one by one or purchase them in bulk.

The Let’s Dance page comes with a preview, so you can see how the video will look for every dance. From there, you can also choose to save the video in your gallery or share it online through Facebook, Twitter, and even Youtube. You can also choose to attach it to your email. Fair warning, though, as it takes ages for the app to process your video.

Nothing much to offer

ElfYourself is a fun app. However, that does not say that you are not in for a few disappointments. For one, there is nothing much else to the app. It only lets you put your face onto an elf dancing to some tune in various backgrounds. It does not give you the chance to make your own video. Moreover, the videos it yields are not that great in terms of quality.

Of course, paying for the dances may also put you off. While the amount for each dance is not that much, a short video may not be really worth shelling out your money for. There are other similar apps out there that can give you more options for free.

Lastly, the fact that you cannot edit the video you make also does not help ElfYourself’s cause. In fact, the only thing you can do to your video is to add a text greeting at the end of it. And there is no text editing option either. The message that will appear on the video is very basic.

Users can find better

ElfYourself is a very simple, if not basic, video application. Sure, it comes with a fun way to create a holiday video. However, with its very limited option, users are bound to get bored after trying it out a few times. The video resolution is also not that great. It would be a shame to share it online. On top of all this, you can only use it during the holidays. All in all, users can find a better alternative to this video app.


  • Easy-to-make holiday videos
  • Straightforward interface
  • Social media integration


  • Limited free dance videos
  • Low-quality videos
  • Video processing takes ages
  • No editing functions

Read "Dancing flame" - Ivashenko Valery VI.

“Another oddity,” Tyrion quickly put in, eagerly listening.

- Yes, yes. So. His Leani girlfriend, Aelirne, stood up for him and was ready to fight on his side AGAINST the virgins. A shadow came over the prince's face, "There are always traitors." nine2603

- The fact is that she is NOT a traitor. Personally, I would be proud of a daughter like Aelirne. So I'm slowly planting in the minds of the Leani people the idea of ​​making Briarwood their homeland and offering the crown to this sorceress. It is incredibly difficult to see an elf surprised to the point of stupefaction, but for a couple of moments the mother saw her son just like that.

“So…” Tyrion slowly came to his senses. So you don't blame her?

- I don't judge. The queen's gaze softened a little. “Really, I don’t understand. No matter how good he is today, he is a black magician. And this is not a profession, but a vocation. Life style. Worldview. And the fact that this does not repel her, leads me to bewilderment. nine2603

- And her daughter?

- She is still young. Couldn't make a choice. By the way, in all the places where he happens, they speak of him more than well.

– What kind of necromancer is this?

- You are right, my boy. Before doing anything, you need to take a closer look at it.

- So invite him and talk. And now my head is spinning. The queen thought for a moment. “Brilliant move, my son. Just unbeatable.

Jarl examined his work again. Then he habitually reached for his pipe, filled it, and leaned back in his favorite rocking chair. In front of him in the room was a voluminous scarlet drawing with diagrams, formulas and notes. The lines trembled perceptibly from internal tension. nine2603

“Well, even a no brainer that this is too approximate,” he muttered thoughtfully and reached for the “Fire Master’s Handbook.” Muscles strained in yesterday's competition with the Emperor ached in protest.

“I have it,” Aine replied from the other side of the structure, where she was patiently picking up something in the flow junction. A light chilly breeze blew in through the open window. Aelirne, who had been dozing sweetly all this time, shifted on the wide soft couch. The jarl threw an unexpectedly warm look in that direction and carefully covered the woman with a shaggy plaid. nine2603

Yesterday, when they went through the portal directly into the courtyard of the Jarl's castle, Aine immediately went to visit Jane and the little Valkyrie. The jarl looked around and barked:

– Jarvik! Yarvik, come here, slay the snake! Yarvik's shaggy head popped up from under the bird cherry bush. “The drunkard is bitter, but he sews clothes anywhere,” as Ngawa once put it. He ran up, staggering and losing the adhering yellow leaves, and bowed.

- Hello, Your Grace! Happy arrival!

- Can you copy girls' clothes? Yarvik walked around Elsa and Lara, dousing everyone with a thick fumes, and scratched his head. nine2603

- We know, master. And if you sew from "damn leather"? There will be no wear!

“Try it,” the jarl nodded and, having given the necessary instructions for the household, ran up the steps to his tower. When, dropping drops of water on the carpet after a shower, he got to bed, a portal flickered in the bedroom and Aelirne stepped out of it.

– My dear… Jarl shook his head, driving away sweet memories, but the voice sounded again.

- My dear, don't you think that your blueprint is unstable? The witch purred, opening one eye. With her intuition and rich experience, she caught the perturbations of the magical ether through her slumber and emerged from her dreams to see what they had come to without her. nine2603

- You're right, mom. Right now, how it smells! Aine said cheerfully. Aelirne and the Jarl smiled at the same time. At this time, the magical construction famously bent and folded inward. Aine jumped back into the corner behind the wardrobe, and the jarl towards Aelirne, shielding the leanee woman with her body. However, nothing happened, only a magic bell tinkled faintly on the shelf.

“Well, I don’t play like that,” said Aine, coming out of hiding. And then it boomed. Or rather, it didn’t bang, but blazed crimson-black. Aelirne calmly cast a spell from the firemen's armory, but the tongue of fire dancing in the middle of the room didn't seem to be hurt at all. nine2603

- What is it? – the sorceress's left eyebrow rose slightly, and she opened both eyes already.

“Mom, we seem to have succeeded,” Aine said, creeping up to the fire on all fours. She reached out her hand, touched it, and then thrust it resolutely into the heat.

“Aine, my dear, are you sure…” Aelirne clutched at the jarl’s shoulders and looked out from behind them as if from behind a battlement of a fortress wall.

- It's all right, mom. The girl examined her hand, which was not hurt at all, and then stood up and simply stepped inside. Passed through the fire, dropping cheerful sparks. Then she leaned over, examining something inside. nine2603

- Yeah! That's how one familiar necromancer makes a fire potion! Aine scooped it up with both hands... and brought a handful of flames to her mother.

- Try it. Aelirne hesitated, but the jarl bent his head and, as if nothing had happened, tasted directly from the palms.

- Very much so. - nodded his head, - I recommend, ma'am. The sorceress took her daughter's hands in hers and drank the liquid fire. She licked her lips, listening to the sensations, and drank everything.

- Indeed, very much so. she agreed easily. - Maybe someone will deign to explain what kind of fiery miracle we have in the middle of the room? Maybe I should walk on the coals? nine2603

“You can’t,” Aine said quietly, gazing into the fire in fascination.

- Why? - however, the sorceress-mother already guessed.

- This, ma'am, is a very close approximation of the Dancing Flame matrix. the jarl explained, affectionately embracing both leanis. “Lady Aine and I are adherents, it won’t touch us, on the contrary, it will help.

- In what way? Aelirne shivered. The jarl pulled the shard of glass towards him and scratched his wrist. So blood dripped. Then he stepped forward and also thrust his hand into the fire. He pulled it out, examined it, nodding in satisfaction, and returned. He showed both Leani the clean, undamaged skin on his wrist. nine2603

- Lady Aine and I have flames as part of our essence. he explained quietly. With all the ensuing consequences.

- Yeah! - Aine was already near the tongue of fire. She peered, reached inside with her hand and, like a snake by the tail, pulled out a long luminous line of the formula. She looked around, running her finger over the bright orange symbols. “Well… only I don’t understand almost anything here,” she complained.

- Nothing. The time will come, we will figure out what the Gods have rewarded us with. There was a rustle, and two shadows flickered behind the remnants of the windows. A moment - and Jane and Lara flew into the room from the balcony. nine2603

“That's what I thought,” Jane nodded as she looked around.

- Exactly. Lara confirmed with a grin. At this time, the charred door leading to the stairs flew out with a roar, and Elsa burst into the room like a hurricane. “Fucking experimenters…

“By the way,” Aine interrupted her. “You never dictated that spell to us.

“What’s with that…” the witch stammered. - Master. There is no fire in the whole castle and, it seems, in the whole city. And it is not mined, not carved, not ignited. nine2603

“The dwarf in the smithy is chattering his teeth from the cold, cursing his fate,” Lara assented. Ngawa came in from the stairs with her giant ladle and threw up her hands.

- Valle, mischievous boy... My stoves went out, we are left without lunch. And you're messing around here! The jarl sighed. Under the dumbfounded looks of the others, he poked around in the fire, loosened some formative knot and carefully hid something indescribable left from the flame in his magical pocket.

After dinner, all three sat in the hall on the second floor, as the tower was being renovated.
