    Attractive silver hair for Elves

    I've always liked the idea of having a silver-haired Elf, which should fit lore. However, all I've ever been able to manage with the existing color swatches is a kind of dirty gray. I just made my first High Elf, and I hoped that there might be a better white/silver hair color, but there isn't.

    I would love to see the color options for Elf hair enhanced to include purer pale colors -- silver and platinum blonde.

    While we're at it, why can't Elves/High Elves have golden hair?

    It's a lore thing. Golden hair was a trait among the Vanyar, and since they all stayed in Valinor there weren't any of them around apart from (presumably rare) part-Vanyarin High Elves like Galadriel.

    It's not just "dirty gray", it's "poorly polished steel" gray. I keep wondering why my friend's LM is wearing a helmet, then remember she's bare-headed.
