The Experience Music Project (EMP)/Science Fiction Museum and Hall of Fame (SFM) in Seattle, Ore., currently has an exhibition of more than 30 costumes and objects from Star Wars, Blade Runner, The Terminator, Superman, Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica and many more of the most popular science fiction-related films and television shows of all time.

The exhibition, Out of this World: Extraordinary Costumes from Film and Television runs through September 30, 2007, in SFM’s third-level gallery space. It allows visitors to examine how costume design incorporates color, style, scale, materials, historical traditions and cultural cues to help performers and audiences engage with the characters being portrayed.

The exhibition is organized into themes including “Heroes and Villains,” “Creating the Character” and “Caped Crusaders” as well as specific franchises such as Star Trek and Star Wars.

About the author

As The Genre Traveler, Carma Spence loves to view the world through Genre-Coloured glasses. In other words, she sees the world through a lens of science fiction, fantasy, and horror, where trash cans can be Daleks in disguise and neighborhood forests can harbor faeries and sprites. Magic realism is real! Or at least you can choose to see the world that way to add to the fun and awe of life.
