Danai Gurira and Angela Bassett Black Panther movie costumes on display...

In the Black Panther's first solo movie, The Walking Dead's Danai Gurira plays 'Okoye', head of the Wakandan royal bodyguards and female security force, the Dora Milaje. Angela Bassett plays 'Ramonda', 'T'Challa's' mother and Wakanda's Queen Mother and oft times advisor to the king of the isolated and technologically advanced African nation.

As fierce and loyal head of the country's secret service, in the movie Okoye feels remorse for failing to stop the assassination of 'T'Chaka', the Black Panther's father, in Captain America: Civil War.

These costumes from Ryan Coogler's Marvel Studios movie were photographed on display at ArcLight Hollywood cinema on January 19, 2018.

I'd previously seen some of these costumes out of display cases at Disney's D23 Expo 2017, but it was nice to get a look at Wakanda's Kimoyo bead bracelets included in this exhibit that all the citizens wear, that provide communications and other high-tech assistance.

Angela Bassett's 'Ramonda' looks every bit the regal African royalty in this black costume.

Ruth E. Carter was Costume Designer on Black Panther and responsible for infusing African tribal influences into the looks of the film's wardrobe.

You can also see more of her design work in these Selma movie costumes and these Roots TV remake costumes, plus stay tuned for even more costumes from Marvel Studios latest superhero flick.
