A cornucopia of movie costumes this Christmas...

If you're a fan of seeing behind-the-scenes of Hollywoodland it's a good time to be in L.A. at the moment, with lots of costume and prop exhibits for all the big holiday blockbusters.

Even though you don't have any props or costumes with an animated movie, The Adventures of Tintin still had this cool display in the Hollywood cinema location to promote the new Steven Spielberg helmed movie.

Universal Studios Hollywood costumes and props

If you find yourself at Universal Studios Hollywood this festive season, you should definitely check out their NBC Universal Experience attraction which houses a wide assortment of memorabilia from the world of film and television.

The exhibit is refreshed about three times a year and at the moment there are costumes, props and models from the Fast & Furious movies, Cowboys & Aliens, Hanna, The Thing, Robin Hood, The Blues Brothers, Scott Pilgrim vs The World and more. Plus from TV you can see outfits and props from House M.D., Heroes, Friday Night Lights and The Office, to name but a few.

Hugo movie costume and prop exhibit

And whilst these other costume and props are no longer on display, they are well worth mentioning. ArcLight Hollywood recently housed this cool display of costumes and the amazing automaton movie prop from the charming film Hugo.

This detailed 'mechanical man' is certainly one of the best movie props I've seen up close.

And for all those Twilight fans, in November you could see Taylor Lautner's motorbike and jacket, plus other original props from Twilight Breaking Dawn Part 1 on display.

As you can see, it's been a great couple of months for movie fans. Let's hope that 2012 is as generous.
