These are my elves. The best I could do with official parts and customs from Brickforge.

I made them fleshies to separate them from my humans, also to reflect their faire and beautiful features.
I also tried to find torsos and armor that are ornate and in line with the high and refined culture of elves (at least that's how I think of elves).
I stayed with green to emphasise their closeness to nature.
I also choose facial features that are a bit unusual, even feminine, to separate them from humans and to highlight their beauty.

I like how they turned out, but I wish Lego would have come out with them as well!

Those are very impressive!

Very nice and detailed. I'm curious to know which technique you used for the decal on the kite shield -- It looks very well done.

Frank_Lloyd_Knight, they are regular Lego shields fromt he Oriental sets. Here is the link to it on Bricklink:

I think they have a beautiful pattern, and they are nicely chromed! :)

Also, it works great as a mandolin! Check this out! (Not my idea!)

It doesn't take a genius to know that long hair is a must. As far as the ears go go ahead and cut a pointed notch out of the headgear. Torsos are what sticks most people. Use your imagination...

^I personally like short haired elves, and their face doesn't have to be hairless.
