Captain America: Civil War is the largest film of the Marvel Cinematic Universe to date, bringing together two epic teams of heroes to battle an intense physical and ideological war. And to costume two powerful and iconic legions, the Russos turned to acclaimed costume designer Judiaanna Makovsky. Makovsky has multiple Oscar nominations and Costume Designers Guild Award wins for such films as Pleasantville, Seabiscuit, and Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. She is no stranger to the comic book genre and MCU, having designed the costumes for X-Men: The Last Stand, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and currently in production on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. We recently had a chance to ask her about just a few of the incredible costumes from this phenomenal film!

The superhero genre has evolved in the past decade, becoming a mainstay of the year-round film-going experience. Marvel changed the landscape, busting free from the summer season with movies that stand alone, yet string together characters from an ever-expanding Universe. While the stars of these films stick around through each new incarnation, often the designers and directors come in for just a single film.
The costumes of the original The Hunger Games film, designed by award-winning designer Judianna Makovsky, span the gamut of simple, distressed, 1930s-inspired work wear of the outlying districts to bright, volumonus avant garde styles of the Capitol. These wonderfully iconic costumes will be on the auction block next week, November 16th 2013 at Black Sparrow Auctions.
