Kíli can’t tell elf genders apart, he just finds everyone really pretty.
(I headcanon that dwarves express their gender with braids, as it’s simple but effective and can be changed as the individual sees fit. As elves don’t have a similar system, younger Dwarves find it difficult to address elves with proper pronouns, because “what do you mean we have to guess based on their features? Assume based on stereotypical traits, how impolite!”)

*melts into a puddle* Now I might have to cosplay this….
Yay, Fili fan art! The reference photo is the second one. Since my portrait isn’t a paintover, there are some difference and little mistakes (he’s looking in a slightly different direction than the ref, and it’s a really subtle thing.) I also didn’t do the chain mail because I would have fallen over counting all those rings. 😮 And the focus is really on his face…which is ridiculously scribbly up close.
Holy cats, Fishcake! This is lovely!
