Wakanda Forever!!! okay, we had to get that off our chest. For those of us who have seen Black Panther, we can definitely say that Ruth E Carter, the custom designer for the movie did an amazing job with the customs, she reflected the diversity of Africa as a continent through the futuristic customs and accessories.

To say that Black Panther is visually stunning is an understatement, it was also accurate when it comes to the customs of different tribes. Let’s take a look at the real-life tribal customs that were represented in the movie.
