To celebrate Mena Massoud's birthday, today I thought we'd take a closer look at his 'Prince Ali' costume worn by the orphaned street urchin in Disney's live-action Aladdin movie remake, along with Will Smith's wish-granting 'Genie' and Naomi Scott's independent 'Princess Jasmine' looks too. All three garments from the 2019 film directed by Guy Ritchie were photographed on display at Downtown L.A.'s FIDM Museum & Galleries on February 4, 2020.

Ramonda and Nakia costumes from Black Panther on display...

Now that the world has had time to mourn the tragic loss of Chadwick Boseman from his years-long battle with colon cancer on August 28, 2020, many fans have started to speculate what the future holds next for the Black Panther and the futuristic African nation of Wakanda in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Will the role of 'King T'Challa' be re-cast, or will his sister, 'Shuri', don the mantle just like in the comic books, or could his general of the Dora Milaje, 'Okoye', wear the ceremonial panther suit or even super-spy 'Nakia'? What is clear is how much of an inspiration the actor and superhero was for a whole new generation. Only time will tell what a Black Panther sequel may hold, but in the meantime enjoy Ruth E. Carter's Oscar-winning costume designs from the first solo movie, worn by Angela Bassett as 'Queen Mother Ramonda' and Lupita Nyong'o as 'Nakia'.

Terence Stamp's Ramsley costume from The Haunted Mansion on display...

With word of a new Haunted Mansion in the works at Disney, here's a closer look at Terence Stamp's ghoulish 'Ramsley' butler costume from the 2003 supernatural horror comedy film. Based on the Disney theme park attraction of the same name, The Haunted Mansion starred Eddie Murphy as a workaholic realtor who takes his wife and their kids to the remote bayou mansion in the hopes of scoring a big payday when he sells the property for the spooky owner. There they discover more than they bargained for.
