USD 65000 FOR THE 'MIDSOMMAR' DRESS

Independent film studio, A24, revealed last month that they would auction off props and costumes from many of their famous films, including Midsommar, Eighth Grade, Uncut Gems, The Lighthouse, Hereditary, Mid90s and popular series Euphoria to raise funds for New York City health workers and families impacted by COVID-19. The second round of the auction took place last Wednesday online, with buyers purchasing notable items from those collections.

The floral dress that Florence Pugh made famous in Ari Aster's Midsommar's concluding scene was sold for a $65,000. The weight of the traditional "May Queen" dress is 33 pounds; it was made of Hungarian linen, 900 years old, making it absolutely one of a kind. The pairing flower crown was sold for $15,000, and Jack Reynor had also purchased the $4,750 bear headdress.

Other Midsommar items included in the auction were the climatic smashing mallet, the Ättestupa tunics (cue the scene of the terrifying cliff jump), and the villagers' floral vests in the film.

The first round of the online auction was held two weeks ago, with customers catching the $8,000 hoodie Zendaya was wearing in Euphoria. The price has been matched for the hand-stitched doormat seen in Hereditary, which belonged to the character of Toni Collette.

If you are a fan of The Lighthouse by Robert Pattinson and Willem Dafoe, or the Uncut Gems by Adam Sandler, don't be afraid. Props from these sets are available today, and the FDNY Foundation, Food Bank For NYC, Queens Community House and other charities will benefit from the proceeds.

A few cult Japanese movies created by Takeshi Kitano have been outfitted by Yohji Yamamoto. Because of the streamlined stylings of Japanese designers like Rei Kawakubo of Comme des Garçons, Issey Miyake and Yohji Yamamoto, Kitano's costumes provide an understated backdrop to what is mostly pretty graphical violence.
