An abundance of marvelous film costumes and props on display around L.A. this spring...

With costume exhibits around L.A. it's usually feast or famine, one day there's nothing to see and the next time you visit your local cinema there can be two or three exhibits to geek out over. Here's a collection of recent costume displays drawing back the curtain on Hollywoodland from the worlds of sci-fi, superheroes and more besides.

Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is soon to be back on cinema screens with more cosmic capers, humour and another awesome soundtrack and to help promote the sequel multiple costumes designed by Judianna Makovsky were on display at ArcLight Santa Monica and Hollywood in recent days.

Speaking of sci-fi and the Alien horror film franchise is back this May with a new installment from Ridley Scott, Alien: Covenant.

Check out these cool costumes designed by Janty Yates and worn by Katherine Waterston and Billy Crudup in Alien: Covenant on display at ArcLight Hollywood cinema currently.

Before these science fiction exhibits, back in March the Manga and Anime-inspired Ghost in the Shell live-action movie starring Scarlett Johansson had this fantastic display at the Hollywood cinema.

With costumes by Kurt and Bart, I especially liked the robot Geisha animatronics by Weta Workshop on display. I thought the movie was visually interesting, but a little lacking in translation, but decide for yourself and take a closer look at these Ghost in the Shell film costumes and animatronics.

I surprisingly enjoyed the new King Kong reboot (great CGI and imaginative monsters), and these costumes designed by Mary E. Vogt were on display at ArcLight Hollywood in March and I loved that the studio had some fun with the costume exhibit signage at the venue.

Make sure to get a closer look at these Kong: Skull Island film costumes worn by Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson and Samuel L. Jackson.

Costumes and props from The Lost City of Z

Robert Pattinson fans would also be pleased if they went ArcLight's Hollywood location at the moment to see his costume (designed by Sonia Grande) and some cool props from the new exploration movie set in the 1920s, The Lost City of Z.

Free Fire film costumes at ArcLight Hollywood cinema

Speaking of Brie Larson, and another costume worn by the actress (designed by Emma Fryer) is currently on display at ArcLight Hollywood from the new 70s crime thriller Free Fire.

So as you can see, it's been a good time to be a fan of film fashion these past few months in L.A., let's hope the trend continues in the coming weeks...
