Latest drama, fantasy and sci-fi costumes, props and cinema displays...

2013 is almost at an end and I've seen some amazing costumes and props this year from both the big and small screen, from the worlds of comic books, sci-fi, fantasy, drama and even romance. Here's a final collection of fantastic screen-used exhibits from this year.

When I was back in the U.K. I discovered that this assortment of fabulous 70's inspired costumes from American Hustle were on display at ArcLight Hollywood. As you can imagine the first thing I did upon my return was rush to the cinema to capture these costumes worn by Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper and Jeremy Renner.

My favourite outfit is this plunging sequin halter dress worn by Amy Adams, which is a real glittering spectacle.

Be sure to take a closer look at all these American Hustle movie costumes designed by Michael Wilkinson.

Also on display at the same time were these costumes and props from Spike Jonze new romantic sci-fi comedy, Her, which stars Joaquin Phoenix, Amy Adams and features the voice of Scarlett Johansson. Take a closer look at these original costumes worn by Joaquin Phoenix in Her.

Another highlight of my return to L.A. were these Bilbo Baggins, Thorin Oakenshield and Gandalf the Grey costumes from The Hobbit 2 also on display at ArcLight Hollywood. I'd seen Peter Jackson's second installment whilst in London, so it was super cool to see these original movie costumes from The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug up close and check out the detail of the garments.

The Day of the Doctor 50th Anniversary costumes and props

Whilst I was back in Britain, I took the opportunity to visit the Doctor Who Experience in Cardiff Bay, Wales again, where this time they had a new exhibit for the 50th anniversary special, The Day of the Doctor.

In addition to alien Zygon costumes and props, a fabulous Queen Elizabeth I gown and Gallifreyan costumes, they also had costumes and a TARDIS for each of the Doctor's featured in the episode, including the outfit worn by John Hurt's newly revealed 'War Doctor'.

Ray Stevenson's Volstagg costume from 
Thor: the Dark World on display

Before I left for the U.K. I was busy rushing around making sure I didn't miss any cool costume exhibits and I just managed to check out two more original costumes from Thor: The Dark World at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood. 

They had this Volstagg battle armour worn by Ray Stevenson and also had Jane Foster's Asgardian costume worn by Natalie Portman, so be sure to check that out at my Hollywood Movie Costumes and Props blog.

Disney's Frozen movie theatre display

And finally, a bit of movie memorabilia in the form of a Frozen cinema standee featuring the snowman 'Olaf' from Disney's latest animated feature film which was also at the El Capitan Theatre, which I think is just cute and festive.

Let's hope 2014 will be as fruitful when it comes to original costume and prop displays...
