Donkey Kong was a really popular video game that originally released in 1981. It features an ape called Donkey Kong, he is often seen with a red tie and his fur in a brown color rather than black like a gorilla.
Some simple elements are needed to complete your Donkey Kong costume. The tie for example can be a homemade prop you would only either a piece of red material cut in the shape of a tie or you can buy a red tie and customize it as needed with the “DK.” The large hammer that DK carries around can also be bought at a store of can be a homemade part of your Halloween outfit. You can find a Donkey Kong specific plastic hammer online, however, it would not be out of the question to create your own hammer prop.With a little cardboard and some creativity with paper-mache you can in fact make your own piece or prop to be added to the ape costume.
However simple the added elements of the tie and hammer that will add a more complex look to your outfit there is nothing you can do to easily recreate an ape costume or Donkey Kong outfit at home. This will take time and dedication and probably alot or material and experience around those materials. Your best bet is to find a brown ape costume that will look like Donkey Kong.
