Freedom Torch, 2023 Pendant

Freedom Torch, 2023 Pendant by Jim (Costume Jim) Glaser and Benjamin Planche.

Jim writes on Kostume Kult’s website, “Costume Jim’s idea/art direction with 3D design by Benjamin Planche (a collab between a New Yorker and a Frenchman – just like the original!!) based on art from our 2022 NYC Halloween Parade float (contributors Sal Chen, KJ Bowen and Tom Egan).

As a NY based arts collective, Kostume Kult has always been a beacon of burner values and NYC gumption. With a first draft on last year’s “Burn Free” NYC Halloween Parade float, this idea springs from the foundational values of our community and country.

The original Statue of Liberty is giant steel construction skinned in hammered copper sheets (the thickness of only two pennies!) whose torch (replaced in 1986 during its centennial restoration) has a copper flame covered in 24K gold. Just like ours! 😉”
