Xena's Costume on Display

Today on Twitter, producer Rob Tapert shared the news that one of Lucy Lawless' hero Xena costumes will be on display at the Christchurch Arts Centre from now through October.  When production ended in 2001, Pacific Renaissance donated one of Xena's costumes, complete with sword, chakram, whip and saddle bag; and one of Gabrielle's costumes, complete with sais to the Museum of New Zealand.

In this short video from 2011 we get up close with the costumes in the museum. I've grabbed some screenshots that show some great details on Xena's costume.  The host notes that Xena's boots are quite large. That's because they were built on top of running shoes for comfort.

The exhibition is called We Could Be Heroes: the gods and heroes of the Ancient Greeks and Romans. More information can be found here.
