Jimmy Fallon's split cowboy costume from Universal Studios Hollywood on display...

If you've taken the Universal Studios Hollywood backlot tour recently (or since 2011 at least) then you may have seen this split cowboy costume worn by late-night talk show host Jimmy Fallon.

He wears this comedic black and white outfit for the Six Point Texas Tram Sketch you see when you ride through the studio backlot where they filmed lots of classic Westerns, shooting up to six movie simultaneously on the six different streets.

This fun costume was photographed on display at the NBC Universal Experience exhibit on April 26, 2012. Personally I think it would make a fantastic Halloween costume.

Johnny English costumes and Reborn props on display...

James Bond is not the only international spy to be exported from the U.K., although Rowan Atkinson's 'Johnny English' is much more farce than thriller.

Included in the exhibit is Johnny's MI-7 I.D. card, the key to Vortex's (a clandestine cabal of assassins) secret weapon, plus more besides. My favorite prop is the cool lipstick gun used by a mind-controlled Johnny in an attempt to kill the Chinese Premier.

On a return visit to the London Film Museum on May 15, 2012, I also had the good fortune to see these suits designed by Jill Taylor and worn by Rowan Atkinson as the titular 'Johnny English' and John Malkovich as 'Pascal Sauvage' (which I'd previously seen behind a display case on a prior visit).

They also had this newspaper prop on display from the first spy spoof film, which I believe is on sale from Propstore.com.

Bob Mackie designed Alice Through the Looking Glass dress on display...

There have been many adaptations of Lewis Carroll's beloved literary character, from cartoon to big screen, including the 1966 TV movie Alice Through the Looking Glass.

This Queen of Hearts dress designed by the infamous Bob Mackie, well known for his costume work with entertainment icons Cher, Judy Garland, Diana Ross, Tina Turner, Liza Minnelli and on The Carol Burnett Show, was photographed at the NBC Universal Experience exhibit at Universal Studios Hollywood on April 26, 2012.

However having never seen it, I can't tell whether this dress was worn by 'Alice' played by Judi Rolin, or the Red Queen herself or one of her court. Does anyone know?

And if you're a fan of Lewis Carroll's creation, be sure to check out all these original costumes and props from Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland.
