An amazing exhibit about Hollywood costume design opens today at the Victorian and Albert Museum in London. The extensive production shows archival costumes from classic Charlie Chaplin to the futuristic Avatar.
Not only do you get to see the costumes themselves, you get to examine the process and work behind the scenes of how a designer creates the iconic looks that become the characters you see on screen. There are workshops for all ages that include making your own costumes or learning how to apply character makeup.
If you can't make it to England, check out this cute Hollywood photobooth app they have on their site.
The exhibit runs until January 27, 2013. The museum is located at
