Unlike “Star Trek” (which is real, of course), “The Lord of the Rings” has inspired many a fantasy costume since J.R.R. Tolkien’s mythic saga was first published in 1954. During the ’60s, there was even an attempt by the Beatles to film “LOTR” starring John Lennon as Gollum, George Harrison as the wizard Gandalf, Paul McCartney as Frodo and Ringo Starr as Frodo’s sidekick Sam. Decades later, Peter Jackson secured the movie rights, and the rest is history, or rather, fantasy. “The One Ring Celebration” last month at the Pasadena Center gave fans the opportunity to dress as hobbits, wizards, orcs and dwarves, with no fear of being institutionalized.
