Empire State Building


Presented at: Balticon 17, 1983


On this, the 50th anniversary of the movie King Kong, we are proud to present one of the stars of the film: the Empire State Building!

Additional Information

The cardboard Empire State Building (which stands in the upstairs hall at Meerkat Meade) is hollow and large enough for a person to fit inside. You may notice a darker rectangle on the face of the building: this is a piece of painted fabric which sits before the wearer's eyes to provide a limited sort of visibility.

When Thomas presented this costume, a tiny King Kong, complete with banana, was perched atop the mast.
