Game of Thrones costume designer joins Joss Whedon’s The Nevers


Game of Thrones was a success so big that pretty much anyone who worked on it can write their own ticket. That’s why this news is so exciting. The Nevers, a site dedicated to Joss Whedon’s upcoming HBO show of the same name, reports that Michele Clapton, who dazzled us for eight years with her costume design on Game of Thrones, will be joining Whedon’s new series.

If you’re familiar with Thrones, we don’t need to tell you how good Clapton is. Cersei’s dark queen gowns? Margaery’s wedding attire? Daenerys’ winter wear? This woman knows how to design an outfit, and any show would be lucky to have her.

The Nevers, in particular, seems a good fit for her talents. Set in Victorian-era London, the show is about a group of women “who find themselves with unusual abilities, relentless enemies, and a mission that might change the world.” If you’ve seen Buffy the Vampire Slayer, think that, but in period dress.

Aesthetically, The Nevers looks like it has a steampunk thing happening, which could open up all kinds of costuming options for someone like Clapton.

Clapton is only one of the many Game of Thrones vets working on the show behind the scenes. Thrones executive producer Bernadette Caulfield will also be an executive producer on The Nevers, so we can expect it to run like clockwork. Also coming over are stunt coordinator Rowley Irlam, production designer Gemma Jackson and producer Duncan Muggoch.

The cast is looking extremely solid, too. We don’t know when The Nevers is coming out, but it’s earning itself some hype.
