I love this time of year in L.A., it's when all the Oscar hopefuls start opening at the cinema and the studios do what they can to get their movies in front of influential Academy voters. The one thing that increases at this time of year to support their award campaigning is the number of costume exhibits that seem to appear at key venues like ArcLight Hollywood.
Be sure to get an even closer look at these Carol film costumes designed by Sandy Powell at my costume and props blog.
Be sure to take a closer look at these movie costumes for The Danish Girl designed by Paco Delgado.
As you can see from all these original costumes displays, the past is ripe with stories for Hollywood to mine and make into inspiring dramas.
You can also enjoy these film costume exhibits from last November and cool costume and props on display from November 2013, and let's hope more costumes follow in the coming weeks and months as we get closer to Hollywoodland's high-profile awards season...
