The newest movie costume exhibits and some classic finds around L.A...

After a bit of a drought I've recently come across some fantastic new movie costume exhibits, plus ventured to some of my usual haunts to peruse what's come out of the wardrobe archives for human consumption.

The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel movie costumes
First up is this fantastic wedding-themed display for the forthcoming sequel to 2012's The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. Rather witty entitled The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, these Indian wedding costumes are worn by Dev Patel and Tina Desai in the movie (be sure to click through and see the fabulous outfits in more detail) and I can't wait to see it as I really enjoyed the heartwarming first film with its wonderful cast of dames and aging thespians.

Another movie on the horizon which looks like it's going to be the epitome of a Disney fairytale, is Kenneth Branagh's live-action version of Cinderella.

I have to say it looks quite magical and these Cinderella movie costumes worn by the film's stars, Downton Abbey's Lily James and Game of Thrones Richard Madden, were photographed at ArcLight Sherman Oaks cinema where they are currently on display at the same time as the Indian wedding outfits above.

Meanwhile in mid-January I went on my regular pilgrimages to the NBC Universal Experience costume and prop exhibit to see what latest delights had been brought out from the world of TV and film archives for all to see.

Back to the Future movie costume props
I have to say I wasn't disappointed by the treasures on display at Universal Studios Hollywood's Lower Lot attraction and I got to see up close costumes from films like Love Actually, 12 Monkeys, Savages, Jane Eyre, Dracula Untold, Back to the Future III and more besides.

Katy Perry concert costume on display

Katy Perry 2009 stage costume
And lastly, I've passed by this original Katy Perry concert outfit for the past few year at the Hard Rock Cafe Hollywood and finally photographed it at beginning of 2015 on the way to the El Capitan Theatre to see Disney's Oscar-nominated Into the Woods movie costumes (and the big screen musical itself, of course).

Let's hope the rest of 2015 has many more costume exhibits for me to enjoy and share with you all...
