Seattle's EMP Museum: Fantasy & Myth Exhibit

I recently went to a fun exhibit at Seattle's EMP Museum near the Space Needle, called Fantasy: Worlds of Myths and Magic. Above you see a photo of one of the Cowardly Lion outfits worn by Burt Lahr in the classic movie, The Wizard of OZ. This is one of two costumes Lahr wore in the film. Below is an outfit from the Winkie guards. Looking at this, I can hear the 'Oh-we-oh" song rolling in my head. 

Next we have costumes from the 1987 movie The Princess Bride based on the novel by William Goldwin. Here are costumes worn by Robin Wright and Cary Elwes as the fought the Rats of Unusual Size (ROUSs).


Here's the glove and sword used by Mandy Patinkin as he rocked the Inigo Montoya character and uttered the fabulous line, over and over and over... 
"My name is Inigo Montoya, you killed my father, prepare to die."

From Harry Potter, you find the costume worn by Gary Oldman to play Harry's godfather, Sirius Black. 

And if you've got a minute more, check out the giveaways going on over on Laura K. Curtis' blog to celebrate the launch of her new book, TWISTED. She's giving away something every single day throughout the month of November. It's definitely worth a stop...
