Though new emoji won’t hit iPhones until June, Emojipedia has the mock-ups to tide us over. Weirdly, there are elves.

New for 2017, this year’s fresh crop of icons will expand its people offerings to include a woman wearing a headscarf, a man with a beard and three gender-inclusive emojis

Wellness is also a theme in this year’s additions, with emoji dedicated to yoga, rock-climbing and even saunas. Come fall, you’ll have an emoji to accompany all those steam-room selfies you’ve been hoarding.

New foods are on 2017’s emoji menu, including pie, dumplings, broccoli and — correcting a major oversight — the sandwich. 

And oddly enough, 2017 will give us an entire cast of fantastical emoji, including zombies, elves, vampires and fairies. 

Emojipedia’s mock-ups aren’t final, and there’s a chance the emoji that hit smartphones later this year could look different from what’s seen here. We’re just holding out hope that the curling stone emoji remains as is.
