Unfair criticism of ROP Eldar.

Seen many complaining about their short hair and the lack of the otherworldliness, ethereal about them.

I will adress the first complaint: Short hair.

If you look closely of all the elves represented in the show, the majority have thick to medium to long hair. Very few have buzz cut like Arondir. Here is a picture of all the elves I consider having medium to long hair:

The second complaint: Lack of otherwordliness
That is simple to answer. The 3rd age elves were fewer and were basically in isolation from anyone, so for the eyes of any mortal beings they will feel otherwordly and ethereal. Also all elven rings were present and contributed to magical vibe in their realms and themselves. 2nd is a different age where elves were a normal sight to see.
