It’s another Trena and Renee road trip. This time, to a museum.
The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts has a super-sounding Hollywood Costume exhibit through February 17th.
Organized by the Victoria & Albert Museum, London, Hollywood Costume explores the central role costume design plays in cinematic storytelling. Bringing together the most iconic costumes from a century of cinema, it is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see the clothes worn by unforgettable and beloved characters in films such as The Wizard of Oz, The Birds, My Fair Lady, Superman, Titanic, Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince and The Dark Knight Rises.
You should know that I’m obsessed with the Wizard of Oz. I DIE!
We’re driving down this Saturday (the 18th) if you’re interested in meeting us there. We think we’ll be there around 1:00 p.m. (following lunch — hopefully at Bottom’s Up). If you’re interested, leave a comment here or email me at missceliespants at gmail dot com.
And, if you’re wondering, we hope to do another Fabric Mart trip and go see this Costumes of Downton Abby exhibition after it opens. Let’s hear it for the east coast and most things being withing a three hour drive!
