THEME
The tale of King Kong's tragic hunt for Ms. Right continues... On Skull Island, dinosaurs, flying reptiles, oversized mammals, giant insects and primitive humans all fight for existence while King Kong, the last of his species, roams alone, looking for love in all the wrong places... Our Horny Kreature's got a special girl and nothing will keep him away -- not even the Cannibal Cops of Art Deco Manhattan! Two environments: Jungle room and NYC room as, after all, Kong was involved with TWO Islands!

DRESS
Ancient Reptile, Great Ape, Giant Insect, Rain Forest Creatures, Damsels in Distress, Intrepid Explorers, 1930's Art Deco NYC, Japanese Kaiju Monsters and Superstitious Natives. Or anything in HORNS!
