The Museum of Pop Culture has partnered with the Walt Disney Archives for an all-new immersive exhibit, Heroes & Villains: The Art of the Disney Costume, which opens on June 5.
The exhibit offers an exclusive look at some of the costumes that help bring many of its most iconic characters to life, with over 70 pieces on display, the first of its kind to be seen apart from Disney’s D23 Expo.
Clothing worn by favorite heroes and villains will leave guests awestruck, including Maleficent’s dress and staff, a number of Cinderella gowns and accessories, and costumes from Pirates of the Caribbean and Mary Poppins, to name a few.
Interactive displays, such as a Magic Mirror, will give visitors an opportunity to virtually put themselves into many of the costumes on display, as well as a projection that explores aspects used by designers in the creative process.
“Costuming is an essential element of storytelling and Heroes & Villians exemplifies the richness of character we hope our films portray,” said Becky Cline, director of the Walt Disney Archives in a release. “It has been thrilling to collaborate with MoPOP’s curators to bring a selection of the stunning pieces we have at the Walt Disney Archives to Seattle.”
