Jack Sparrow costume, voodoo doll and Pirates props on display...

If you haven't already been to see Disney's latest blockbuster Pirates of the Caribbean movie, then if you're able your should pop along to the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood to check out some wonderful costume and prop exhibits from the movie, including Johnny Depp's 'Jack Sparrow' costume from On Stranger Tides.

Jack Sparrow's costume is designed by Penny Rose and in addition to his mysterious new scar on his face in this fourth installment, he also has a new vest waistcoat. On his belt you'll find attached an assortment of accessories, from a chicken foot voodoo trinket to some lucky animal pelts, and even a shrunken head.

It's amazing to see this costume up close with his signature tricorn hat and bandanna, but it's a shame that it's missing Jack's eccentric pirates hair with its beads and weird mementos in his braids.

Also included in the exhibit was props used by Johnny Depp in the movie, like Jack Sparrow's magical compass.

This next prop was a real treat, as it's Blackbeard's voodoo doll of Jack that he uses to inflict pain on him.
