Big Bang Theory Costumes Make it to US Museum
The costumes designed in Big Bang Theory by Mary Quigley will be showcased in Washington
Last week, two fan favourite TV show came to an end. While the Game of Thrones series finale was received with mixed reviews, The Big Bang Theory's last episode proved to be an emotional one. But seems like the discussion around the hit TV shows is still not over. Reports and rumours of Game of Thrones spinoffs have been rife all over social media, whereas The Big Bang Theory's cast made an announcement after the final episode of the show was aired.
Making an appearance at The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, the entire cast of The Big Bang Theory revealed that their characters' costumes from show would be donated to a museum - namely, the Smithsonian National Museum of American History.
The entertainment section of Washington's historic museum will feature an exhibit that will include the iconic Flash T-shirt worn by Dr. Sheldon Cooper, played by Jim Parsons. Johnny Galecki who plays Leonard Hofstader in the show, will also have his character's recycle shirt along with a hooded cargo jacket featured at the museum along with the signature outfits worn by Kaley Cuoco, Kunal Nayyar, Simon Helberg, Mayim Bialik and Melissa Rauch's characters.
The collection will include Penny's pink tank top and Uggs, Howard Wolowitz's plaid shirt and turtleneck, Raj Koothrapaali's sweater vest and jacket, Amy Farrah Fowler's wool sweater and knee-length skirt and Bernadette's cardigan and floral dress. Joining thousands of other artifacts at the museum, the costumes, all designed by Mary Quigley, will help tell the story of great content on American TV throughout the years.
Earlier, Parson revealed that he was ready to bid farewell to the sitcom and his character. But since there is no meaning to The Big Bang Theory without Sheldon Cooper, the twelfth season marked the end of the series.
He said, "There was no factor; there was no situation that I was like, 'Well, I've had enough of that.' No. There was nothing like that. It was just, when you know, you know. And you're susceptible and thrown around by the whims of your own existence and getting to a certain age and your life changes and suddenly you just think different." While the loved series has come to an end, it did create a world for endless new possibilities - more stories in this case. A flashback spinoff called Young Sheldon was created, which offers glimpses of the character's past, voiced by Parsons himself. The show just completed its second season and will be returning for a third one very soon.
