In the year 1954 John Ronald Reuel Tolkien’s magnum opus “The Lord of the Rings” came to see the light of day. Today, about 60 years later, the author is widely considered one of the founding fathers of modern fantasy literature and with his stories and characters not only inspired lots of bookworms, but illustrators, filmmakers, costume designers and – of course – cosplayers.
With the recent release of the third Hobbit movie “Battle of the five armies” another cinematic Tolkien trilogy comes to its epic conclusion.
