Up close with The Hateful Eight film costumes...

Only the other day I was bemoaning the fact that I hadn't been able to take the best photographed of The Hateful Eight costumes on display behind their reflective display cases and windows, but as luck would have it I won an ArcLight Hollywood giveaway for a walk-through of the cinema costume exhibit (along with a bag full of other goodies from the film) on January 21, 2016.

First up is a closer look at Kurt Russell's 'John Ruth' bounty hunter costume and Oscar-nominee Jennifer Jason Leigh's killer 'Daisy Domergue' costume. In Quentin Tarantino's latest film he's transporting the murdering woman in chains to the town of Red Rock in blizzard conditions in post-Civil War Wyoming.

Courtney Hoffman was Costume Designer on this bloody Western mystery and the next costume, which I think will make for a great Halloween or Cosplay costume, was worn by Samuel L. Jackson as the bounty hunter 'Major Marquis Warren' (although it's a shame the mannequin is holding his iconic-looking white leather gloves, rather than wearing them)'.

Bruce Dern plays 'General Sanford "Sandy" Smithers', an elderly, proud Confederate veteran. And in addition to all these costumes worn by the main cast, the props featured in this exhibit are also screen used items.

And finally here's a closer look at Michael Madsen's 'Joe Gage' character costume from all angles. Seeing screen-used costumes and props up close really does heighten your cinema going experience in my opinion.

For more Western-themed costumes, be sure to also check out these Back to the Future III movie costumes, these Zorro TV costumes and these film costumes from The Lone Ranger.
