Just the Island Slip

Here is a study of Ann's island slip.  Most of the images are from after Ann has been rescued by Jack from King Kong as they run back across the island to giant gate and then the lifeboats.

Thirty of these slips were made then distressed to varying levels.  The slip was inspired by 30's fashions but built for the rough and tumbled action work required by the film.  For the upside down work in stunts, one version even had a body suit on the inside so the slip would stay with her body. Watching the behind the scenes pictures you can also see slips that are slit on the sides to accommodate harnesses. There's a lot of work that went on behind that simple little slip.
