These Victorian era costumes were photographed on display at the FIDM Museum in Downtown L.A. on February 12, 2016 and were designed by Jany Temime.

The Costume Designer worked on six of the Harry Potter films and you can also see her costumes in Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason and Children of Men.

In the film the ambitious medical student Victor Frankenstein rescues a nameless hunchback from a London circus and names him 'Igor' after his deceased roommate. He drains his back cyst and creates a harness to help him with his posture and the two become partners in his unorthodox medical experiments.

X-Men: Apocalypse Cyclops movie costume on display...

In the latest film in the big screen X-Men franchise by Bryan Singer, the uncanny mutants face off against the first of their kind, 'Apocalypse' and his four harbingers of death and destruction, his 'Horsemen'. Set in the 1980s time period the movie features younger versions of classic X-Men'Jean Grey' (Sophie Turner), 'Storm' (Alexandra Shipp), 'Nightcrawler' (Kodi Smit-McPhee), 'Angel' (Ben Hardy) and 'Scott Summers aka Cyclops' played by Tye Sheridan.

Louise Mingenbach is Costume Designer for Marvel's merry mutants again this time around and you can also see Michael Fassbender's Magneto costume from X-Men: Apocalypse on display at ArcLight Hollywood currently.

The young X-Men uniform designs certainly look very militaristic (well I suppose they are at war with Apocalypse and his Four Horsemen), and at first they appear all-black but on closer inspection the armour and arm guards are black, but there's also a touch of olive army green there too.

Of course Cyclops is also sporting some ruby quartz Ray-Bans to help keep his eyes optic blasts under control.

I'm sure fans of the iconic comic book character and Cosplayers alike will appreciate all these detail shots to help them recreate their own costume looks.

Let's hope this inexperienced Cyclops is strong enough to survive in battle against Apocalypse (he has a nasty habit of dying in these movie adaptations).
