SO YA LIKE MOVIE COSTUMES?


Last week 
the fabulous 
and I went to a
fashion show/costume exhibit
at
The Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising


The fashion show part had former FIDM grad
and Project Runway star
showing off some of his Academy Award-inspired gowns.
which were lovely--
but yeah 
big deal
whatever
who cares
because 
BATTLE ARMOR!!!





No,
the fashion show 
didn't include these
costumes from 
Pacific Rim,
but 
the gallery show 
afterwards 
did!

Highlighting
many of this year's Oscar nominated films,
the exhibit spanned an impressive
cross-section of 
movies.

Like 
Star Trek: Into Darkness


Man of Steel
(the detail on this costume was sooper intricate)



GI Joe: Retaliation



My youngest son
went to pre-school with the son or 
Ray Park
(Snake Eyes, Darth Maul, The Toad, etc)
He's a really great guy
so we were psyched
to see his costume here:


I think this was from Thor:




One of the my favorite parts of the exhibit
was the paper-craft hair on
the mannequins:




Obviously 
it wasn't all
sci-fi 
fantasy 
action movie 
costumes
or
Mrs. Warburton
would have run screaming into the night.

There was stuff from
Anna Karenina:




The Great Gatsby:



American Hustle:




But 
yeah 
big deal
whatever
who cares
because 
SAMURAI!!!


The show is running until
April 26th
so you've got 
time to see it.

Details are over
