23 Annual Hollywood Costume Exhibit at FIDM

It's been a while since I wrote in, but I've been on vacation. I went home to Southern California for about a week and used a couple of days to catch up on museum exhibits that were in town.

Every year the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising Museum in Los Angeles will display costumes that are nominated for Oscars along with other films released during the year. The official exhibit is The Art of Motion Picture Costume Design. It's always a treat to go see these costumes because some of them are just stunning. While I do love Victorian costume, film costume comes in at a close second. This year, they also allowed us to take photographs!

FIDM always displays the previous year's Oscar winning costumes. Last year (2013) was The Great Gatsby.

This year (2014), The Grand Budapest Hotel won.
There were plenty of other costumes, but here are a few of my favorites.
Into the Woods
Into the Woods
Fairies from Maleficent

Aurora from Maleficent
Guardians of the Galaxy - Starlord
Guardians of the Galaxy - Gamora
Others films that were represented at the exhibit include Night at the Museum 3, Dracula Untold, Jersey Boys, The Birdman, Mr. Turner, and a few others.

If you're ever in the area while they have this display up (they do it every year), make sure to check it out!
