Glad Midsommar, allihopa! It’s all downhill from here…
Today is the greatest Swedish holiday apart from Jul, the day when we get the longest day and the latest sunset, and in a country known for winter, this is a big deal. When I posted about Midsommar last year, I included photos of Jacoby wearing the traditional flower crown.
I recently found the floral crown again (it had fallen behind some books) this spring. I was thinking Jake could model it again, perhaps outside…but obviously that can’t happen. So I decided to try it on everyone else, and see who, potentially, could be my next hat model. I started with Angel.
After all, Angel does have hat wearing experience.
She wasn’t in the mood today…
…this is the best I could get from her.
So, Alfred, how are you at wearing a flower crown? You are a native born Swede, after all…this should be natural for you!
Er…Where are you going?
Oh, you think the top of the balcony tree is a better background?
You may be right. Okay, give me looking off into the distance.
Great! Now give me sensitive and thoughtful.
Awesome! And now…give me the money shot!
Okay. Let’s try the other Swedish Aby. Lorelai, your turn.
Once again, without the crazy eyes?
Okay…better. But let’s keep going…
Demure…demure is good…or it would be if you weren’t so frowny.
There you go! That’s perfect!
And, now…let’s see how the Polish contestant does. Here you go, Izaak.
Oooookay…could you sit up, please?
And could you lose the attitude?
That’s a little better…keep going…
Okay Zak, now you just look like a Tribble with flowers.
And…yeah, I think that’s the best we’re gonna get from you today. Thank you!
So, who wore the Midsommer flower crown best?
