Latest collection of period movie costume exhibits in Hollywood...

I love this time of year in L.A., it's when all the Oscar hopefuls start opening at the cinema and the studios do what they can to get their movies in front of influential Academy voters. The one thing that increases at this time of year to support their award campaigning is the number of costume exhibits that seem to appear at key venues like ArcLight Hollywood.

Currently the new lesbian love story Carol has this wonderful collection of costumes worn by Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara in the romance set in 1950s New York.

Be sure to get an even closer look at these Carol film costumes designed by Sandy Powell at my costume and props blog.

Another film I can't wait to see is The Danish Girl starring Eddie Redmayne as the first male to female sex-change operation recipient set in 1920s Copenhagen.

Be sure to take a closer look at these movie costumes for The Danish Girl designed by Paco Delgado.

Meanwhile before these two other exhibits, in mid-October ArcLight Hollywood's foyer was host to these movie costumes from Trumbo worn by Helen Mirren, Bryan Cranston and Diane Lane. in a tale about a leading film writer blacklisted for his political views in late 1940s Hollywood.

Suffragette film costumes on display at ArcLight Hollywood cinema

In finally also in October, these costumes worn by Carey Mulligan and Helena Bonham Carter were on display from the movie Suffragette set in early 20th century Britain.

As you can see from all these original costumes displays, the past is ripe with stories for Hollywood to mine and make into inspiring dramas.

You can also enjoy these film costume exhibits from last November and cool costume and props on display from November 2013, and let's hope more costumes follow in the coming weeks and months as we get closer to Hollywoodland's high-profile awards season...
