Heroes and Villains: The Art of the Disney Costume
A captivating exhibition that immerses visitors into the world of Disney, illustrating how our understanding of its iconic characters is shaped through the artistry and creativity of its costumes.
Using more than 70 original pieces, including ball gowns, sorcerers’ capes, military uniforms, tiaras, and of course glass slippers, the exhibition explores the vision, process, and craft used to create the costumes worn by some of the biggest names in entertainment. Heroes and Villains features costumes from some of Disney’s kindest heroes and toughest villains, as well as insights from designers, photographs, interactives, and a special film.
Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo! There are only a few weeks left before MoPOP’s Heroes and Villains: The Art of the Disney Costume exhibition turns back into a pumpkin after Sunday, April 17.
