The Get Down TV costumes on display...

Baz Luhrmann's ambitious and lavish TV musical, The Get Down, may not have secured a large enough audience for a second season on Netflix, but the funky wardrobe from the show certainly evoked the feel of the 1970s Bronx as it told the tale of a group of teenagers struggling to find love, fame and fortune during the rise of hip-hop and disco.

Tom Hiddleston's Loki costume from Thor: Ragnarok on display...

This year I was fortunate enough to get a glimpse of some Thor: Ragnarok film costumes out of their reflective cases at Disney's D23 Expo in July, but the one costume not one display there was Tom Hiddleston's new 'Loki' costume and as I didn't make it to San Diego Comic-Con I was excited to see it on display at ArcLight Hollywood cinema on October 9, 2017.

Mayes C. Rubeo is the Costume Designer on Marvel Studios new movie directed by Taiki Waititi, which sees the God of Thunder transported to the gladiatorial arena of the planet Sakaar to fight his Avengers teammate, the 'Hulk', after 'Hela' invades Asgard.

How Loki factors into all the cosmic mischief has still to be seen, but fans of the God of Lies can also check out Loki's costume from Thor: The Dark World on display, which also sports his trademark gold, green and brown colours.

As I'd already seen Thor's new gladiator costume out of a display case I didn't waste too much time trying to get too many shots, but at least this exhibit credited Prop Master Richie Dehne with creating Thor's new gladiatorial swords.

Meanwhile for a more traditional Asgardian look, you can also check out Chris Hemsworth's Thor costume from Avengers: Age of Ultron on display.

Also on display was one of Tessa Thompson's 'Valkyrie' costumes from the movie, but for a 360° look at this outfit make sure you check out these Thor: Ragnarok costumes on display at the 2017 D23 Expo, which also includes Jeff Goldblum's 'Grandmaster' costume.

Personally I can't wait to see this new Marvel movie, it looks like it's going to bring something new to the Cinematic Universe and Valkyrie was always one of my favourite female Defenders and I enjoyed the Planet Hulk storyline on which some of this movie is based.
