Over 170 items are up for auction from Blacksparrow Auctions on September 12th, 2015 featuring original screen-used props and costumes from the hit thriller “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo” starring Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara. With a mix of custom designs and high-end brands such as Prada, Scotch & Soda, Yves Saint Laurent, Tiger of Sweden, Oscar Jacobson, Ralph Lauren, John Varvatos, and others, costume designer Trish Summerville gave the actors sex appeal and style to match Fincher’s sleek cinematic vision of Stieg Larsson’s international bestselling crime novel. The auction features hero costumes for every principle actor. Bidding starts at $5 with no reserve. The collection comes directly from the production studio and will include a certificate of authenticity from Blacksparrow, Inc.
