Is there anywhere that sells elf/spock/guado ears for black people?

This site offers the widest range of prosthetic elf ears I've found, and if you scroll down to the FAQ, t says they offer them in light, medium, and dark skintones:

But you'll probably still need to use makeup to blend your own skin in with the ear. Several other sites offer plain rubbor or latex ears that are light, but can be made the appropriate color with makeup. (Probably a heavier stag makeup.):

Or you could always try making your own:

Aradani offers painted and nonpainted kinds of ears. I think most other places only offer the nonpainted. For any sort of long wear, you'll need to paint the ears the appropriate colors (remember shading and such), and then apply makeup to blend from your ear to the prosthetic more smoothly once you've put it on.
Aradani's may not be dark enough, they're probably mostly made for dorky white people. I vote for mixing the appropriate colors yourself. I'd try mixing a color of paint and then using it on my own skin to see how it compares. O_o i don't know how else to do it accurately..
