Just in case some of you have yet to discover my other exciting blog, Hollywood Movie Costumes and Props, here's just a selection of the original outfits and props that have been featured around L.A. in June and July this year.
Inception movie costume and prop exhibit

Slightly out of sequence release date wise, but by far and away the most popular costumes and props in terms of visitors is this collection of original costumes and props from Christopher Nolan's highly successful summer smash, Inception.

There were two exhibits, one featured Inception outfits worn by Leonardo DiCaprio and Marion Cotillard, plus an array of props from the movie at ArcLight Hollywood, and the other at ArcLight Sherman Oaks featured costumes worn by Ellen Page, Leonardo DiCaprio, Marion Cotillard and Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

Fans of The Twilight Saga also got a thrill when they showed up at the foyer of ArLight Hollywood to see these four costumes worn by Dakota Fanning as 'Jane' and her fellow Volturi vampires in Twilight: Eclipse.

Even though Jake Gyllenhaal's pumped up body didn't ignite the summer box office in Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, it was still a treat to see one of the original costumes he wore as 'Prince Dastan' at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood.
They also had a fantastic selection of weapons and props used in the fantasy-adventure movie on display, plus additional outfits worn by Ben Kingsley and Gemma Arterton.

To promote the Disney movie they also had an addition exhibit over at ArcLight Sherman Oaks cinema at the beginning of June.
Universal Studios Hollywood movie exhibit
Back in June I also took another trip to Universal Studios Hollywood to see what new costumes, props and models they had to see in their ever changing behind-the-scenes exhibit. I was not disappointed.
On display were period costumes from The Wolfman, Meryl Streep's outfit from It's Complicated, classic and new Battlestar Galactica costumes, an animatronic werewolf, the Bride of Chucky, hoverboards from Back to the Future II, plus lots of other wonderful models, maquettes and props.

Even though M. Night Shyamalan's The Last Airbender was a huge disappointment to watch, it was really great to see costumes and props from the movie up close at ArcLight Hollywood. I'm always fascinated by the more extravagant and flamboyant costume designs, especially from sci-fi, comic book and fantasy movies.

These four costumes worn by Annette Benning, Julianne Moore, Yaya Dacosta and Mark Ruffalo were on display at ArcLight Hollywood, whilst other costumes from the film, worn by Mia Wasikowska (of Alice in Wonderland fame) and Josh Hutcherson, were exhibited over in Sherman Oaks.
Hollywood Movie Costumes and Props really does cover all genre of film, from horror to period dramas, and sci-fi to comedy, so if you like funny movies you'll want to check out these models from Paul Rudd and Steve Carell's latest movie, Dinner for Schmucks.
Finally for this round-up I'll leave you with a glimpse of the future. This is a reproduction of the 'Lightcycle' featured in Disney's forthcoming Tron Legacy movie out in December. As the special effects in the movie are computer generated, this replica was created to promote the movie and its accompanying console game at the E3 Expo in Downtown L.A.

As you can see there have been lots of behind-the-scene goodies to be seen around L.A. these past few months.
Let's hope the coming months are equally as exciting...
