Models and props from The Matrix movies on display...

Yesterday I shared with you photos of an EXO Suit from Edge of Tomorrow and today it's the turn of some cool models and props from The Matrix Trilogy, specifically 1999's genre-defining The Matrix and 2003's The Matrix Revolutions, set in a dystopian future where mankind is kept suppressed in a virtual reality world and humans are bred as batteries powering machines whilst the last remaining fragments of humanity fight for freedom.

These miniatures (APU stands for Armoured Personnel Unit, a hydraulic mechanized walker that the human survivors used to protect the last hidden human city of Zion against the squid-like Sentinel killing machines) and the Bug Extractor prop (used to extract the tracker bug in Keanu Reeves 'Neo' in the first movie) were photographed on display at Warner Bros. Studios Backlot Tour on June 9, 2016.

Fans of science fiction can also check out all these other sci-fi costumes and props on display on this blog.

EXO Suit from Edge of Tomorrow on display...

In 2014's Edge of Tomorrow Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt wore EXO Suits to battle alien invaders in a war that played on a loop, as he starred as a soldier forced to repeat the day over and over, restarting every time he was killed. The sci-fi film by Doug Liman was adapted from Hiroshi Sakurazaka's 2004 novel, All You Need Is Kill.

Going through my archives I discovered these pictures of an EXO Suit worn by the soldiers on display at Warner Bros. Studios Backlot Tour on June 9, 2016.

These suits were the collaborative effort of Production Designer Oliver Scholl and Costume Designer Kate Hawley and built by modeler Pierre Bohanna.

RuPaul's Drag Race gowns on display at Hollywood's RuPaul Pop-Up Shop...

Being a huge fan of RuPaul's Drag Race since the very first season (and of the Glamazon for many years before that) I just had to pay a visit to RuPaul's Pop-Up Shop at Sweet! Hollywood in the Hollywood & Highland Center on August 5, 2017, to see these fabulous frocks in person and where you can also buy all manner of merchandise inspired by Mama Ru.

The Emmy-nominated Zaldy Goco is the Costume Designer responsible for RuPaul's spectacular runway and judge's table looks (although hair, makeup, padding, charisma and talent go a long way to create the illusion too).
