Look at a picture of the Empire State Building to copy its shape using boxes from around your house. Cut boxes to size and tape them together. Make a cone-shaped antenna out of foil for the top of the building. Spray paint the building gray or silver. After the paint has dried, draw windows and accents with a black magic marker.

Step 3: Making The Costumes

For King Kong:

Hand-sew and/or hot glue the black craft fur to the hooded sweatshirt and pants after cutting it into pieces shaped like the clothes. Put a strip of fur across the top of the hood. After putting the infant or child into the outfit, put black gloves on both hands and both feet.

For Ann Darrow:

Drape white fabric around child, securing with safety pins in the back. Have child don blonde wig.
This is just too cute. :D

King Kong seems to be playing the role quite well, too, haha
