A Wrinkle in Time movie costumes and props on display...

In Ava DuVernay and Disney's cinematic adaptation of Madeleine L'Engle's beloved 1962 book, A Wrinkle in Time, a young girl named 'Meg Murray' (Storm Reid) must travel across the universe with her younger super-smart brother, her new high school friend and three astral travellers for good, 'Mrs. Which' (Oprah Winfrey), 'Mrs. Whatsit' (Reese Witherspoon) and 'Mrs. Who' (Mindy Kaling), to help rescue her missing scientist father.

All three of these costumes were designed by Paco Delgado and they're from when Meg and her companions arrive on Camazotz in a field of corn.

You can see more of his Costume Design in these Oscar-nominated Les Misérables movie costumes and these Oscar-nominated film costumes from The Danish Girl.

If people liked the movie as much as I did, I think it would make a great group Halloween costume for three friends don't you think?

Fans of the actress can also check out her costume from Big Little Lies and her Water for Elephants movie costume on display.

Mrs. Who loves books, words and knowledge and usually speaks in quotes from famous people, literature and history, so it's no wonder words are included in her costume design.

Fans of Mindy Kaling can also check out her wardrobe from The Mindy Project TV show.

Ready Player One movie costumes and props on display...

In Steven Spielberg's new sci-fi spectacular, Ready Player One, the year is 2045 and humanity escapes from the desolation of the real world of pollution and overpopulation by escaping to the virtual reality realm of the OASIS to work and play. When the creator of the OASIS dies, Tye Sheridan's 'Wade Watts' and his online alter-ego 'Parzival' discovers clues within the program that promises the winner of the quest full ownership of the VR world. Along the way he joins friends to complete the game before the mega-conglomerate Innovative Online Industries (IOI) takes control of the OASIS.

In the OASIS you can be anyone and do pretty much anything, be a giant Gundam mech suit, an orc or superhero, drive Kaneda's motorcycle from Akira, a DeLorean time machine, the Mach 5 from Speed Racer and more iconic characters and vehicles mashed up together from TV, film, comic books and the gaming world of pop culture.

In Ready Player One Olivia Cooke plays 'Samantha', also known by her avatar 'Art3mis', who works with various allies to make sure the OASIS is kept out of the controlling hands of the IOI and wears this Sixer suit in the movie.

Tye Sheridan plays 'Wade', a teenage 'Gunter' (an OASIS user who searches for the creator's 'Easter Eggs' in his quest) from Columbus, Ohio who lives in a slum with his aunt and explores the virtual reality world as 'Parzival'.

Fans of Tye Sheridan can also check out his Cyclops costume from X-Men: Apocalypse on display.

I can't tell whether this is a promotional cinema standee or a prop from the movie, but it's still a cool 3D reference for The Iron Giant robot from the 1999 animated film.
