Costumes at the Museum

The Mrs, the MNA and I hit the local museum today. The current display was Hollywood outfits. Paul Allen has loaned out his private collection to go on tour across the US and our local museum snagged a few weeks to show.

I do not know where to begin. This was a geek paradise. I took notes on the exhibits that stood out the most.

Highlander - Connor MacLeod's opening sequence Scottish outfit worn by Christopher Lambert.
Ghost Busters - Dr. Raymond Stantz's jumpsuit with nuclear regulator backpack worn by Dan Akroyd
Battle Star Galactica (current series) - Viper Pilot suit
Blade Runner - Replicant Pris outift worn by Darryl Hannah
Batman (original tv series) - Robin costume worn by Burt Ward
Batman (1997 Movie) - Infamous nipple costume worn by George Clooney
Raiders of the Lost Ark - Indiana Jones's whip used by Harrison Ford and Staff of Ra headpiece
Raiders of the Lost Ark The Last Crusade - Leather jacket worn by Harrison Ford and Holy Grail (SOMEONE INFORM THE CAST OF SPAMALOT ASAP!)

Star Trek:
Star Trek (original series) - Captain James T. Kirk's Gold Tunic worn by William Shatner in episode "Mirror, Mirror"1967, Dr. Leonard "Bones" McCoy's Enviro Suit worn by DeForest Kelly in episode "The Tholian Web" 1968, Klingon Warror Uniform
Star Trek: Voyager - 7 of 9's outfit worn by Jeri Ryan (holy hell is she short)

Star Wars:
Star Wars and The Empire Strikes Back - Darth Vader's Costume worn by David Prouwse with Light Saber, Storm Trooper Helmet and Blaster, Obi-Wan's Jedi Robes worn by Sir Alec Guinness, Luke Skywalker's Light Saber used by Mark Hamill
The Empires Strikes Back - Luke Skywalker's severed hand

I can't believe what cool costumes they had. The Star Wars ones where my favorites.

It is funny how when up close and personal how cheesey the older ones looked. Robin's costume look like it was sewed by a 6th grader in home ec. The Darth Vader costume was by far the coolest. The helm with it was a stunt helm according to the placard. You could see how beat up it was. If only it could talk and tell how each one happened.
