Ghost in the Shell movie costumes and animatronic props on display...

This spring beloved Japanese Manga comic series Ghost in the Shell by Masamune Shirow gets a big screen, live-action adaptation with Scarlett Johansson playing the cyborg counter-terrorism field commander, the 'Major'. If you can look past the whitewashing controversy of casting a caucasian actress in an infamous Asian role, the film looks like it's going to be a sci-fi visual spectacle.

Kurt and Bart were Costume Designers on the sci-fi crime movie and you can also see their film costumes in Dallas Buyers Club and these Step Up 3D movie costumes.

The film directed by Rupert Sanders follows Scarlett Johansson's one-of-a-king human cyborg hybrid, the 'Major', who works for Section 9, an elite task force tasked with stopping the most dangerous criminals, extremists and hackers. This time she faces an enemy dedicated to wiping out Hanka Robotic's advancements in cyber technology.

In addition to wearing her figure-hugging skintight costume, the actress also wears this tactical uniform in the movie.

The Japanese Geisha mask and prosthetics used in the movie were designed by Weta Workshop, and it's amazing to see the detail of this open robotic face.

I love this deadly, futuristic red robed kimono costume worn by Rila Fukashima in the movie, especially touches like the plastic blue collar trim, not to mention the stylized molded wig.

The golden Geta, traditional Japanese wooden footwear like a mashup between sandals and flip-flops, were a collaboration with Japanese shoe designer Noritaka Tatehana.
