Folk horror movies are so rare, and films with Swedish folk attire as stage costumes are even rarer. That’s why it’s so interesting to analyze the outfits used in this movie called “Midsommar”. These Scandinavian garments – at least 500 costumes for the cast and extras, by the way – are mostly made from scratch to resemble the real Swedish traditional clothing as much as possible. Also, the garments are decorated with runes, which is rather unusual for modern popular films as well. And these runes aren’t just cute ornaments but meaningful symbols. In short, Midsommar is definitely worth watching and its movie costumes are worth studying.
