Screen-worn costumes from A Wrinkle in Time on display...

In Ava DuVernay's 2018 fantasy film adaptation of Madeleine L'Engle's 1962 novel, A Wrinkle in Time, Storm Reid plays teenager 'Meg Murray' who travels across the universe with her younger brother and new school friend in order to rescue her missing scientist father from 'The It'. She is aided in her quest by three astral travelers, Mindy Kaling's 'Mrs. Who', Oprah Winfrey's 'Mrs. Which' and Reese Witherspoon's 'Mrs. Whatsit', who explain The It is the embodiment of all the evil, greed, anger, pride, selfishness and low self-esteem in the world, which also takes the form of Michael Peña's 'Red' or 'The Man with Red Eyes' on the planet Camazotz.

These screen-worn costumes were photographed on display at Disney's D23 Expo in Anaheim, California on August 23, 2019, part of the Walt Disney Archives Heroes & Villains: The Art of the Disney Costume exhibit.

Paco Delgado was Costume Designer on the Disney movie and you can see more of his outlandish and elaborate film costumes from A Wrinkle in Time on display.

You can also enjoy more of his designs with these costumes from The Danish Girl and these movie costumes from Les Misérables.

I've previously seen this trio of fantastical costumes exhibited at Downtown L.A.'s FIDM Museum & Galleries, but not with the actual wigs.

Mindy Kaling fans can also check out her costumes from The Mindy Project, whilst Oprah Winfrey admirers can take a look at her movie costume from Selma and you can see Reese Witherspoon's screen-worn costume from Water for Elephants and her costume from Big Little Lies on display.
