Alita: Battle Angel movie costume and gyro-bike on display...

This year director Robert Rodriguez brings us a live-action adaptation of Alita: Battle Angel, based on Yukito Kishiro's Japanese manga Gunnm, with Rosa Salazar as the titular teenage cyborg heroine. The cyberpunk story is set in a post-apocalyptic future were an abandoned 'Alita' is found in a scrapyard and is given a new robotic body by scientist 'Dr. Dyson Ido' (Christoph Waltz). With a mysterious past and no memories, her new friend 'Hugo' (Keean Johnson) offers to help her navigate the treacherous Iron City as she discovers she has amazing fighting abilities in the Motorball arena.

Nina Proctor is Costume Designer on the futuristic movie, although it looks like her costume was rendered by CGI and motion capture the same way her eyes were made to look impossibly bigger.
