The costumes for the film are definitely fantasy. There's no historical accuracy to them, really [...] Because there are so many films and TV shows such as 'Game of Thrones' that were done so beautifully, I very consciously from the beginning thought of going the opposite way.
I did not want to use any fur or any leather because I felt that would be just terrible [because director David Lowery is a lifelong vegan.] So most of the costumes are completely vegan. We used pineapple leather and we used bark cloth from trees that resembles leather. We just stayed away from anything else. I've never used those materials before and I wouldn't have searched for them if it weren't for David being a vegan and me trying to find a way around it. That was a good challenge that made me re-imagine the clothes and not, you know, try to outdo 'Game of Thrones,' which was perfect.
