Broad City season 4 TV costumes on display...

In honour of the fifth and final season of Broad City airing on Comedy Central today, I thought fans would love to check out this selection of wardrobe from the series fourth season on display. The show follows two twenty-somethings, 'Ilana Wexler' (Ilana Glazer) and 'Abbi Abrams' (Abbi Jacobson), navigating life and living large in New York City.

These season four costumes were photographed on display at Downtown L.A.'s FIDM Museum on August 21, 2018, and I especially like the feminist icon denim jacket sported by Ilana Glazer in the show (and Hillary Clinton once even had a cameo in the show's third season).

Staci GreenBaum was Costume Designer on the comedy series with help from Assistant Costume Designer Angel Peart and Costume Supervisor Bryan Czerniawski.

These outfits were part of the 12th annual Outstanding Art of Television Costume Design exhibition so be sure to check out all the other TV show costumes on display.

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).

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.

In addition to Alita, the exhibit also shines a spotlight on Hugo's futuristic gyro-bike from the movie.

Let's see if Alita: Battle Angel can escape the whitewashing curse that plagued the live-action adaptation of Ghost in the Shell at the box office this February.
