Guardians of the Galaxy Gamora movie costume worn by Zoe Saldana on display...

On July 21, 2014 I was fortunate enough to attend the Guardians of the Galaxy World Premiere and walk the red carpet with the stars at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood, and the funny thing is, I was equally excited to see these original costumes from the cosmic Marvel movie on display at ArcLight Sherman Oaks cinema on August 1, 2014.

Featured in the costume exhibit were the signature movie looks of Chris Pratt's 'Star-Lord' and Zoe Saldana's 'most dangerous woman in the universe', the green-skinned assassin, 'Gamora', which also feature in the promotional posters for the superhero sci-fi film.

Based on the Marvel Comics character created by Jim Starlin, in the movie Gamora is the adopted warrior woman daughter of 'Thanos', who initially works with the Kree fanatic 'Ronan the Accuser', but soon becomes involved in the hunt for a powerful orb and joins the ragtag band of thieves, bounty hunters and maniacs to help save the galaxy.

Alexandra Byrne was Costume Designer on this space-based movie and she's also created the looks for previous Marvel Comics movies The Avengers and Thor, plus films like Finding Neverland and 300: Rise of an Empire and mostly notably her Oscar-winning costume work in Elizabeth: The Golden Age.

I know that fellow Guardians of the Galaxy fans, costume enthusiasts and cosplayers will appreciate this abundance of images and the costume details of one of Gamora's figure-hugging alien outfits from the movie.

Personally I love the blue animal/reptile print incorporated into the mostly black ensemble and I wouldn't be surprised at all if we see many Gamora, and other Guardians of the Galaxy costumes, at this year's Halloween.

If you like this authentic outfit, be sure to stay tuned for a closer look at Chris Pratt's 'Peter Quill' aka 'Star-Lord' costume in the days to come.

I also highly recommend you buy the movie's fantastic nostalgic 70's and 80's inspired soundtrack (which I'm listening to as I type this): Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Mix Vol.1
