Fans may still be in limbo waiting for Lionsgate to announce the rest of the new cast members joining The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, but the studio has revealed that Girl with the Dragon Tattoo costume designer Trish Summerville has signed on.
Summerville will be in charge of continuing the looks and styles created in The Hunger Games — the downtrodden apparel of District 12’s citizens, the stark uniforms of the Peacekeepers, the outlandish style of Effie Trinket and other Capitol citizens, and of course, Finnick Odair’s barely-there ensembles.
But most importantly to fans of the series, Summerville will have to create Katniss Everdeen’s wedding dress — a poofy, white concoction that, through some trickery of Cinna’s, goes up in flames and transforms into a Mockingjay gown. Check out some of the other Catching Fire costumes Summerville will need to create in this slideshow of fan art.
Summerville was honored by Hollywood’s Costume Designers Guild last year for her work on The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. She also created a line of clothing inspired by the film for H&M retailers. Perhaps she’ll also create a line of clothing inspired by The Hunger Games?
Filming on The Hunger Games: Catching Fire begins next month in Atlanta, but cast and crew are already preparing. The movie comes out November 22, 2013.
