Sami . Reindeer Calve -- or young -- whose antlers were taken for other use. Those are not "Costumes", the Sami are around Hunting, and need to be SEEN in bright colors. It's the coldest part of Scandinavia, and they love their reindeer, & don't want to waste any of them so clothing is made the old ways -- it keeps them warmer than warm in Coldest part of their World!! (Living in a tent often!!)
