An eclectic wardrobe of horror, sci-fi and period drama costumes and props on display...

If you're a fan of costume design, it's a great time to be in L.A. with lots of new movie exhibits and a wonderful retrospective of the year's best TV wardrobes on display at the moment.

First up are these cast costumes from IT Chapter Two, the supernatural horror movie sequel based on Stephen King's 1986 novel.

This exhibit is fantastic as it features not only the kid and grown up character looks, but Bill SkarsgÄrd's Pennywise the clown costume too.

Luis Sequeira was Costume Designer on this second installment, whilst Janie Bryant reimagined Pennywise's harlequin clown costume in the 2017 movie.

From supernatural scares to sci-fi, and Arclight Hollywood also had this cool display for Brad Pitt's new outer space thriller, Ad Astra, at the weekend.

Be sure to take a closer look at this astronaut suit and space buggy, with the costume designed by the legendary Albert Wolsky.

Downton Abbey is making the leap from the small to the big screen this September and this duo of costumes from the upcoming film, where the British King and Queen come to visit, were also on display in the cinema's foyer.

Anna Mary Scott Robbins was Costume Designer on this motion picture version, so be sure to take a closer look at Michelle Dockery and Allen Leech's movie costumes from Downton Abbey on display.

And finally, I'm still sorting through hundreds of images from this year's television costume design exhibition at the FIDM Museum in DTLA (which is free to the public and open until October 26, 2019). I'm hoping to feature as many Emmy nominees for Outstanding Costume Design on my costume and props blog before the winners are announced on September 22, 2019.

Here's hoping the costume exhibits keep coming as we head into fall and a new season of film and television...
