Godzilla X Kong Features a Character Who LOVES Pin-Back Buttons Cover Image
Godzilla X Kong: The New Empire

When we saw the trailer for the new Godzilla X Kong: The New Empire movie we immediately were struck by the costume for the character Bernie Hayes (Actor Brian Tyree Henry). Hayes is a recurring character from the 2021 movie Godzilla VS Kong. But as sequels often ramp things up to a new level, he’s looking particularly cool thanks to one excellent costume choice.

Bernie’s leather vest is absolutely loaded up with various button pins and everything that we love making at Pure Buttons!

In the trailers for the film, the character has many quick appearances which reveal that he wears a variety of pin-back buttons on his vest as well as patches and lapel pins. In the closeup above we can spot a 1 inch button with a peace sign and a larger button design that may be depicting Bigfoot or Kong himself.

Compared to the rest of the costume design of “normal people” featured in the trailer the buttons are really a wild choice.

From the shots and reactions Bernie Hayes shows in the trailer it seems as if he is more of an “Every Man” character and the audience will identify with his reactions to the craziness around him. What’s more grounded than pin-back buttons?

We hope there are some closeups of this beautifully decorated vest in the movie so we can make out some of the other button designs. Unfortunately the trailers move too quickly to make them out.

Check out the trailer below, which according to normal people, has a few (slightly) more exciting things in it than custom buttons. Godzilla is glowing pink for some reason, and King Kong has a robot arm (of course).

This trailer #2 which has a lot more shots of Bernie and his button & pin clad vest:

Obviously we have a fan of custom buttons in this movie’s costume designer Emily Seresin. We couldn’t be more excited to see buttons like the ones we make given such a high profile appearance! Thank you Emily!
