When it comes to costume and prop exhibits it's often like feast or famine, you go for ages without anything, then along comes a veritable smorgasbord of treasures from the world of cinema and television. Recently I've glimpsed original movie costumes from Avengers: Age of Ultron at various cinemas in L.A., visited the Doctor Who Experience exhibition in Wales and this month I returned to Universal Studios Hollywood to see the latest archival treasures that had been brought out from the vaults.
Covert Affairs starred Piper Perabo as 'Annie Walker', a young female CIA operative out in the field undercover, and this glamorous purple dress is from the second season episode 'Good Advices' (with Costume Design by Trysha Bakker).
Jack O'Connell's World War II bombardier costume from Unbroken
Cheerleader costume and props from Bring It On
Costume and props from sci-fi comedy Paul
Original costume and props from the Jurassic Park movies
Christopher Walken's Captain Hook costume and miniature pirate ship from Peter Pan Live!
Fortune Teller Booth prop from TV's Warehouse 13
Uma Thurman's gown from TV's Smash
Plus muscle cars from Furious 7 also on display at the theme park
There's always something for everyone at this often overlooked attraction at Universal Studios Hollywood and I can't wait to see what surprises they have in store in a couple of months when they'll refresh the ever-changing exhibit with costumes and props from new and classic movies and TV shows.
