Rue’s Euphoria hoodie, the Midsommar flower dress and other A24 film props have scooped a staggering $362,375 for COVID-19 charities.
For anyone who spends more time than they should in the blackened dusk of a cinema room. Or googling Adam Sandler glow-up memes. Or telling anyone that will listen that Toni Collette should have won a Best Actress Academy Award for one 2018 horror film. Our time is now.
Beloved indie studio A24 have now announced A24 Auctions, which does exactly what it says on the tin: offering up the most iconic props and costumes from some of it’s most talked-about films over the years.
Rue’s burgundy hoodie that Zendaya wears in Euphoria. A worn-out skateboard from Mid90s. The time capsule from Eighth Grade. That bedazzled Furby from Uncut Gems. A creepy little doormat from Hereditary. And some of our faves. Florence Pugh’s May Queen “men are trash” flower dress from Midsommar. And the very siren that had Robert Pattinson baring his bum in The Lighthouse.
All the proceeds from these sales will be donated towards four NYC charities helping communities that extremely vulnerable to the coronavirus: NYC Health + Hospitals and Queens Community House, NYC Foodbank and the FDNY Foundation.
The site currently has planned auctions which are staggered over the course of the next couple of weeks, the first of which opened this week. Bids have already started rolling: check the $5,000 someone has splashed on Toni Collette’s creepy Hereditary doormat (it was me).
A24 Auctions have raised a staggering $362,375 for New York City workers and families impacted by COVID-19. Rue’s zip-up hoodie from Euphoria and Annie’s personalised doormat from Hereditary both reached $8,000. Elsewhere, the iconic May Queen dress from Midsommar sold for $65,000, the Furby pendant from Uncut Gems totalled $13,500, and Kevin Garnett’s Celtics NBA Championship ring scooped up $15,000.
