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.
We will take a look at the "heroes" section of this exhibit first.
Old Hollywood glamour.....ahhh...the stuff MY dreams are made of!
Betty Grable, Lauren Bacall and Marilyn.
I met Lauren Bacall. 1986 Dorothy Chandler Pavilion. She was starring in Sweet Bird of Youth. I waited by the back stage exit, (I know, cliche), when she walked out my back was turned. I felt a tap on my shoulder and heard "excuse me." I turned to stand face to face with a Hollywood Legend. She was 62 and so glamorous, regal, majestic wearing a black and white striped turtleneck and black pants. I couldn't speak. She somehow knew.
"Hello." I replied.
She breezed passed towards her waiting car. For such a brief encounter, I was forever impacted.
I found both pair of shoes at a vintage resale. They're not vintage, strange, but I bought the gray pair with intention of making them over to look something like what Betty Grable would wear in Pin Up Girl.
I painted the soles red, then coated the shoes with Mod Podge. Sprinkled generously with a mix of silver, pink and magenta glitter! Sealed with Mod Podge (after several coats of glitter).

There's MORE to the Max Factor Museum in Hollywood than Marilyn Monroe's Make Up collection. There are several rooms with featured actresses. Joan Crawford, Lucille Ball, Judy Garland, Lana Turner and Rita Hayworth. AND! Max Factor's make up cases are on display.
Tickets are $15 and there are three levels to the self guidedtour. I recommend this museum! It's wonderfully glamorous.
Growing up in Los Angeles in the 70s/80s we visited Disneyland on a regular basis and often after school, before "Annual Passes".
