This gigantic ape dubbed The Eighth Wonder of the World has ingrained himself to our minds forever, and people still love him today. It’s no wonder film makers still create different King Kong movies up to now.

One of the most famous scenes in the movie is when King Kong climbs the Empire State Building in New York, and this is something you can recreate with your toddler. As the building, all you’ll need to wear is a grey sweater, grey pants, and a building headpiece while your kid wears a monkey suit.

Ann Darrow is a beautiful woman and struggling performer who sets sails on a ship with her favorite playwright, only to be captured in Skull Island. There, she meets Kong who falls in love with her. Though she was scared witless at first, she forms a bond with Kong and gains the giant’s trust.

Ann Darrow and King Kong’s scene atop the Empire State is one of the most iconic movie scenes ever shot. She wears a white flowy dress, silver stilettos, and to make it look like Kong is holding Ann, a DIY giant ape’s hand.
