More movie costumes from The Hateful Eight on display...

Around this time last year, Quentin Tarantino fans were early awaiting the Christmas release of his eighth movie, the bloody Western thriller, The Hateful Eight. Before the movie opened I was able to spy several movie costumes exhibits around L.A., but it was on February 12, 2016 at Downtown L.A.'s FIDM Museum that I was able to get a closer look at some of the cool looks from the movie.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them movie costumes on display...

On my way to see more magical creatures last night, a Q&A with Tom Ford for his Nocturnal Animals movie, the ArcLight Hollywood cinema also conjured up this amazing collection of costumes from J.K. Rowling's latest Harry Potter prequel spin-off, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

In this first installment in a new magical five movie film franchise, Eddie Redmayne plays 'Newt Scamander', a shy and daffy English magizoologist who travels the globe collecting extraordinary endangered magical creatures.

The wizard's travels bring him to 1926 New York City where he's on the hunt for some exotic new species and an accident causes some of his mystical beasts to escape his magical suitcase, threatening to draw attention from the non-magical population and the American wizards and witches policing magical use.

I think there's a very Matt Smith Doctor Who costume feel to this eccentric Newt Scamander look with the bow tie and tweed materials.

Fans of Eddie Redmayne can also check out these movie costumes and props from The Theory of Everything, these Oscar-nominated costumes from The Danish Girl and his Marius movie costume from Les Misérables.

'Percival Graves' is a high-ranking Auror and the Director of Magical Security of the MACUSA tasked with tracking down Newt. I loved seeing the detail and trim on his 1920s-inspired costume up close, especially his deadly scorpion collar pins.
