|In real life, we'd most probably deeply resent beings who are of an ethereal beauty, look like freshly walked out of a beauty salon even after four months on the road without a bath, have many talents, are kind of heart and, to top it, brave and not girly at all, despite running around wearing leggings or robes and braiding their hair. Come on - who of us could adore somebody who makes us look like something the cat dragged in.
So why do we like them so much on screen? No idea. Must be in our genes. Yes, that's it. We have a gen that makes us go moo-moo eyed as soon as we get to see a Pair Of Pointed Ears - a POPE-gen.
If you got a more reasonable explanation, feel free to keep me posted.
A note on this gallery: I'm sure I didn't manage to catch all the elves you can see in "Fellowship of the Ring", but quite a few, most I never noticed when I saw the movie. And you might notice I have a weak spot for warrior elves. So sue me, Dorothy.
(And I'm still arguing with Melanie if the two "nagging elves" who talk the poor guy's head off at the council of Elrond are Elladan and Elrohir. They are NOT NOT NOT!)
(Or Hobbit. Human. Whatever.)
