Adam Savage's King George Costume!

Adam recently completed a build of the royal St. Edwards crown inspired by the one worn on stage for Hamilton, and he pairs that prop with a full King George costume he commissioned from Chad Evett! It's Adam's first time trying on the full getup--crown, cape, and all--and we take the costume for a photo shoot at the beautiful Sydney Goldstein theater in San Francisco to see what it looks like on stage!

Proud to say Chad was my roommate until a month ago, and we had a lot of fun cosplaying and shh, don't tell Adam, but I wore his King George outfit before he did! 😂Chad is amazing and so talented and utterly focused. He works all day long every day and it shows! Congrats, Chad!

I like the costume quality & the ideas for a tour prop. When I watched both episodes—the Coronation Crown & the Costume—I wanted to know more about the play.
Being more familiar with the “Madness of King George” the movie, I believe that the King may have been poisoned by a metal oxide in a conspiracy—Secret Societies, etc.
When I looked up “Farmer George” & looked at the several portraits, the King only wore the Coronation Crown once. He likely wore the State Crown only when opening Parliament & the Imperial Crown wasn’t made yet.
You called the Crown, a Hat several times & it’s funny because; King George really only wore hats.
His Military Uniforms in Dress Red had Lintzen. His Naval Dress Blue was a model for the early American Continental Army & his hat was that of a Field Marshal’s or an Earl Marshals, with the King’s Rank Insignia. His Royal Badge is the same worn by Queen Elizabeth II.
It would be fun to recreate King George’s uniforms, but also his Farmer’s Dress.
King George III was a farmer & he raised his own crops. In the movie “the Madness of King George” he’s portrayed wearing a weathered Tricorne Hat.
In King George’s most famous portrait, he wore a Gold Cape & only a powdered wig on his head.
I looked up Crowns too!
King Louis XIV’s crown is difficult to pin down. They credit the crown to the Dauphin & King Louis XV.
The Third French Republic sold off the French Crown Jewels to avoid a coup d’etat & I believe the Second Duke of Winchester bought what he could find in New York after a second sale.
What remains of the French Crowns is in the Louvre.
There are also very intricate Russian Imperial Crowns.
I have not looked up the German Crowns or the Hapsburg Crowns.
Related to King George III & later to Kings George IV & V, there were thefts of the French Crown Jewels—we have Legends about diamonds on the Titanic—also legends about the Hope Diamond.
I’m very excited to draft some ideas for screenplays; I’m not much of an accomplished writer, but that won’t stop me.
Your challenge is an awesome one & there are excellent opportunities to make props.
Emperor Charlemagne’s Crown was drawn by an artist & we all know how easy it would be to make Julius Caesar’s Crown made gold by Napoleon Bonaparte.
Super awesome—I loved the episodes!

Not to get picky, but I think you said King George III (you've just written King George in the description). He was from the House of Hanover. That was followed by the House of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha following the death of Queen Victoria. After WW1, that changed it's name to "Windsor" to distance itself from Germany.
Side note: I just realized that the House should change after the death of QE2, though I'm not sure to what. Mountbatten?

WOW those are good photos! The THINGS YOU CAN DO with a professional camera in the hands of an expert! Thank you for adding in that slideshow bit at the end, REALLY tied this whole experience together! My favorite part of that costume is DEFINITELY the jacket... Ahh, the joy a fancy man must feel, being able to simply button a vest and NOT have to button the jacket!
(Definitely made me feel a little better about Adam's skinny-privilege', being able to wear the clothes 'off the rack' as it were, when seeing the clamp on the back of the breeches to hold them up LOL - no 'body' is perfect, for everything else, there's tailoring XD)
I really do look forward to the potential scepter-build, and DEFINITELY the boxes where these huge, fancy pieces will live! I used to find it irritating and strange that Adam wanted to build boxes for his props he loves, but over the years of watching this channel - and especially after seeing the walkthru of the storage-attic-area - I have come to understand and appreciate the idea! Practically speaking, things NEED boxes to be stored in, and I also now understand that it's part of Adam's process of respecting the item, rather like clothing your children - sure there's the FUNCTIONAL aspect, but there's so much more you can DO with clothing than just keep them warm and weather-proof, you can make FASHION STATEMENTS, and that's what Adam's doing with the boxes! Storage Statements! :D

Saw what might be the 'right' design for a case for this, especially if you want it to be both a traveling case, and somewhat period correct for a traveling case, victorian style. At the Jackson Street Transportation Museum in Saint Paul, MN. Steamer trunk, opens left to right, left side has hangar spaces for shirts, trousers, etc. Right side has drawers for undergarments, and stuff you wouldn't hang up. Doubles as a dresser at your destination. I've only the one photo, but willing to share that if interested. I also presume that other's have similar photos, and I doubt if it's something that only happens to be at this museum. Presume that anything you build would be custom to your needs, not a duplicate of course.

Carol Burnett joke was delayed laugh with the line only. Then the realization of remembering the scene too funny. Laugh again. Beauty of the internet I had to watch that scene again.
Missed opportunity of unnecessary censorship. Pixelated until you get the royal clothes on. All while under a sign, Dressing And Undressing Prohibited.
Without the crown and cape, as a prank see, if you can be a Hotel doorman.
On the trash can! King of the Trash Heap. Too funny. Is there footage on trying to achieve that?
Also Isn't ironic the British tend to have limited enthusiasm to the French, beret wearers?Irony?

What an awesome piece! Adam, you look truly royal, especially with the sideburns 😊. A nit picky thing: I think the pendant is meant to go over the shoulders of the cloak; it would be the last thing to put on. Although I think the one you got might be a little short for that. Perhaps an upgrade?
