|Carl Denham's rumpled
island adventurer outfit is there
with his hand cranked camera.|
|Jack Driscol is represented with the
distressed and bloodied version of the
remains of suit he wears from
the beginning of the movie though the entire island romp. |
|Three outfits represent three very
different sides of Ann Darrow.
|The first is her New York
dinner outfit, 3 shades of blue in
crepe and knit. The blouse has details not seen in the movie - delicate
buttons down the front and decoratively stitching that might be pin
tucks. (It's great to get as close as a couple of feet to the costumes,
but you always want to get just a couple of inches away. )|
|From the ship, is the
beautiful beaded gown from the
sunset movie scene. Small copper beads on neck form a delicate trim on
the back as well as the textured straps. The gown is so well
constructed it's almost impossible to find any of the seams.
|In the final scenes, Ann is a beauty
wearing a bias cut off-white dress. The surprise is that her dress is a
very fine vintage silk velvet. The sparkly bits are silver hot-fix
appliqués in sunburst patterns.|
|Corrections, sketches and updates of all of Ann's outfits on display.|
|Add purse description
|Added blue slip
|Added sketches of the blouse
detail, jacket and

Tears gown and details on lining, beads and fit.|

- Ann's Interview Coat.
Added a few more caps. These are from the Production Diaries. Changed
the sleeve description. It's a one piece sleeve with an insert.
The design is clearer now.
- Ann's Fog Outfit: More
pictures. Uncolorized ones. Making of write up. It's a draping
exercise. (Yea, I got insane...)
- Added a few pattern recommendations for
Ann. Right now we're just aiming for the look, close fits
are going to take more work. Please help.
- Also added two more caps from Carl's
NYC pinstriped suit coat, uncolorized.
The 1933 pictures are up but without much detail. Any help on
descriptions, patters or proofing welcome.
Welcome to the opening of King Kong Costume. For a starter only
Kong 2005 is setup. 1933 will get a bit of a workup, then I'll be back
to working on LOTR for a while. I have nothing for the 1976 version or
any of the Kong sequels or Japanese versions. Anyone else who loves the hairy monkey and his
leading ladies that want to help out... please give a yell.
A big thanks to Maria and Jack-o for contributing images and links.
The Kong costumes are fun and easy to put together. Come play.
