“Out of This World: Extraordinary Costumes from Film and Television” celebrates the work of costume designers and contains more than 50 artifacts – from “Star Wars,” “Star Trek,” “Indiana Jones,” “Blade Runner,” “Batman & Robin” and “Ghostbusters II,” among others – on loan from the Science Fiction Museum and Hall of Fame in Seattle.
“Out of This World” debuted at the Science Fiction Museum in 2007. It is the institution’s most popular traveling exhibition.
