All-new movie costume and prop exhibits around L.A. this Fall...

Even though I've been showcasing all kinds of Halloween costumes in the past few days from last week's West Hollywood Carnaval, I couldn't help but share the original movie costume exhibits that have sprung up around L.A. in October and early November, especially as Marvel's Thor movie sequel opens in the U.S. today.

I was lucky enough to see an early screening at the American premiere on Monday and absolutely adored Thor: The Dark World. The sequel is ambitious, action-packed and best of all explores new territory in Marvel's Cinematic Universe. The movie mashes up genres like medieval fantasy, comic book heroes and sci-fi effortlessly, so much so that I think it should make the Star Wars and the Hobbit franchises worry a bit (especially with Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy on the way too).

This fantastic exhibit featuring costumes worn by Rene Russo as Thor's mother 'Frigga' and Anthony Hopkins as the All-Father of Asgard, 'Odin', were on display at ArcLight Hollywood cinema at the beginning of November.

Now these are the kind of fantastical costume designs I love to see in person, and if you want to see these original Thor: The Dark World costumes in more detail, be sure to click through to my Hollywood Movie Costumes and Props blog.

Another set of film costumes I was excited to see at the end of last month, were these outfits worn by Matthew McConaughey, Jennifer Garner and Jared Leto in the 80's based AIDS drama, Dallas Buyers Club.

I run marathons to raise money for an HIV/AIDS charity in L.A. and it's important that films like this are made, not only to show what happened in the past, but also to highlight that this deadly disease hasn't gone away, people are still living with HIV/AIDS and we are still trying to find a cure for it.

More big movie stars had their film wardrobe on display this month, in this case sharp looking suits worn by Michael Fassbender and Brad Pitt in The Counselor.

The new crime thriller had cool exhibits at both ArcLight Sherman Oaks cinema and the original Hollywood location at the end of October 2013.

Now that we're entering the run up to Oscar consideration season I think we'll start to see even more cool costume and props exhibits around L.A. in the weeks to come, so I'll keep my eyes peeled and be back with more updates soon.

In the meantime be sure to check out my Hollywood Movie Costumes and Props blog for all my latest finds in much more detail...
