Recently I had the very great pleasure of viewing the new exhibition of costumes and props from the wonderful ABC TV series â€œMiss Fisherâ€™s Murder Mysteriesâ€. If you have the chance, I recommend that you do so too. From the official website:
This brand new exhibition, set in the home of Aunt Prudence in the TV series, features never before seen series three costumes and props. See up close the outfits worn by Phryne Fisher (Essie Davis) and her cohorts â€“ including Detective Inspector Jack Robinson (Nathan Page) and Aunt Prudence (Miriam Margolyes). Walk through the different sets and touch and feel the sumptuous fabrics. Try on replica costumes and interact with props and furniture from the show as you step deeper into Phryneâ€™s world. Solve a crime by looking out for clues from Detective Inspector Jack Robinson. As you go upstairs, become part of the crew and go behind the scenes to discover the inspiration for the costumes and understand how they were made. You will even get the chance to design your own dress.
