At the very end of 2011, I was fortunate to pop onto the Disney Studio lot in Burbank, California to check out the latest costumes on display from the Walt Disney Archives.
Original TV and movie treasures from the Walt Disney Archives
Included in the exhibit in the lobby of the Frank G. Wells building on December 30, were outfits featured in popular ABC television shows and Disney films.
The reflection of the sun on the cases doesn't always make it possible to get great images of the displays, so you can also check out these costumes and props from Disney's Secretariat on display at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood and at ArcLight Sherman Oaks cinema.
Costumes worn by John Malkovich and Diane Lane in Secretariat
I've previously seen some of the other costumes on display at Disney's D23 Expo, but it was nice to get a closer look at them again, plus see some new additions I'd never glimpsed before in person.
Stay tuned in the days to come for more photos of these costumes, including:
Mia Wasikowska's White Knight battle armour from Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland
Dress worn by Sally Field as Nora Walker in ABC's family drama series Brothers & Sisters
If you're a die-hard Disney fan you won't want to miss them.
