we went to the Art of Costume Design exhibit today  
Here in LA, the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising (FIDM) every year does an exhibit of costumes from the movies of the previous year - this usually includes at least a few of the Costuming oscar nominees as well as a whole bunch of others.

Though disappointed Disney didn't lend them TRON Legacy costumes this year (BOOOOOOO), the others were pretty interesting. King's Speech, Inception (Ellen Page is a WAIF. TINY. seriously the girl from True Grit's costumes were a bigger size), True Grit, Dawn Treader, Shutter Island, Prince of Persia, Clash of the Titans, Alice in Wonderland (my observation? Minus the hat, Depp's costume is almost a duplicate of Jack Sparrow).

Some of the odder, but really fab costumes: Burlesque. wow. And Last Airbender. damn that Fire lord outfit is way too great for that movie. And The Tempest. I need to see that now, because Prospera's black gown? IS DECORATED WITH ZIPPERS. it is awesome.

If you're around (it runs through April) you should check it out.

That sounds so cool. I wish I could see that.

It is very cool, but sadly they don't allow photos so I have nothing to show people. It's very sad. :(

It's cool, but sadly no photos allowed so I can't show people how cool it is! Very frustrating.
