Some months I bemoan the fact that I've not chanced upon enough costume and prop exhibits around L.A., these past few weeks however that is not the case. Not only did my recent trip back to the U.K. allow me to visit the Doctor Who Experience in Wales again, but I also popped my head into Universal Studios Hollywood on my return to see what treasures had been unearthed from their cinematic and TV vaults. That's not to mention what exhibits my local Hollywood cinema foyers had to offer on display.
On this occasion they had items from TV shows like Miami Vice, Covert Affairs, Parks and Recreation, Parenthood, Smash and even the recent Peter Pan Live! musical event. They also had movie costumes and props from the Jurassic Park movies, The Theory of Everything, Bring It On, Unbroken and Furious 7, to name but a few.
If you're intrigued, be sure to take a closer look at all the amazing costumes and props on display at Universal Studios Hollywood.
Almost the first thing I did when I got back to L.A. was go and see the new Avengers movie and I recently saw it for my third time as there's so much to take in for a die-hard Marvel Comics fan. I loved the addition of Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch in the movie sequel so I had to go see this costume exhibit at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood on May 5, 2015.
Plus I also managed to whizz around like a speedster before I flew to London and captured these other original Avengers Age of Ultron movie costumes on display at various ArcLight cinemas, including Black Widow, Thor, Hawkeye, Nick Fury and Captain America's new duds.
I think one of my favorite things on display this time was a classic Yeti from some old 1960's episodes.
The Doctor Who TV series may be over 50 years old, but it still has what it takes to entertain and excite generations of fans, young and old.
As you can see I've glimpsed sights from the past and the future recently, and can't wait to see what new delights will be on display in the coming months.
