Saturday Night Live hires Kilt This to Make Night King Costume for Pete Davidson

Posted by Serena Laws on

April 4, 2019 8:55am, we agreed to recreate a costume we were known to make of the Night King from HBO's The Game of Thrones. We received a voicemail a day before from the Costume Department at Saturday Night Live (SNL). It was marked urgent and we began corresponding back and forth about whether or not it would be possible to have the costume delivered by April 6, 2019 (Saturday morning). Of course we agreed immediately. We had less than 48 hours to not only make the leather kilt but also the foam top vest and shoulder gear along with boot guards. That meant we would not sleep until they had the costume in their hands, Saturday morning. Fortunately, we happened to have the supplies on hand; I was going to make a suit for myself. I still, have not made a suit for myself.  (Night King at 4:00 in the video)
