    The Ainur took the Elvish forms after the Elves were first awoken, in admiration of their beauty. But do you have any idea on what they appeared like before it?

    The Valar took the Elvish forms before the coming of the Elves based on what they had seen in the Vision. Before that they are not said to have any form.

    I see... So my memory served me right about the inspiration but wrong about the timeline. Thanks.
