The Lord of the Rings cosplay recreates nearly every major character using an adorable array of dogs, and one cat. J.R.R. Tolkien’s beloved fantasy novel was brought to the big screen by Peter Jackson’s The Lord of the Rings trilogy, chronicling Frodo’s epic journey to destroy the One Ring and defeat the Dark Lord Sauron. The first film follows the forming of the titular Fellowship of the Ring, which consists of Frodo, Sam, Merry, Pippin, Aragorn, Boromir, Legolas, Gimli, and Gandalf.
Some lovable Lord of the Rings cosplay shared recently by lotrology on Instagram recreates nearly every major character using dogs, and one cat. Check it out below:
The cosplay captures both Gandalf the Grey and the resurrected Gandalf the White, the latter using a cat instead. The adorable dog cosplay also recreates the dark wizard Saruman and some less famous characters like Éomer, a Man of Rohan. Three pugs are also pictured as “The Wise Ones,” who are the three wizards Saruman, Gandalf, and Radagast.
Why Lord of the Rings Is Still So Popular
The Lord of the Rings novel was published in three parts from 1954 to 1955, and Jackson’s cinematic trilogy was released from 2001 to 2003. The wildly successful film adaptation brought Tolkien’s epic story to a wider audience by introducing stunning visuals, captivating performances, and big battle sequences to the equation. The property’s enduring popularity can also be attributed to the new Prime Video series, The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power, which is also based on Tolkien’s novel but set thousands of years prior.
Though Lord of the Rings is known for its immersive worldbuilding, epic storytelling, and universal themes, it’s its complex characters that have connected with audiences on an emotional level and left an everlasting lasting impact on them. This includes the determined Frodo, the wise Gandalf, and the heroic Boromir. Whether it’s adorable dog cosplay or terrifying Witch King cosplay, The Lord of the Rings‘ characters remained ingrained in popular culture as audiences endlessly attempt to recreate them.
