KEITH ENG’S GODZILLA
For the basic form of the tail I used foam loops that were cut from an old children’s play mat.
Old jeans are cut up to glue as connectors between each loop.

Zipper integration was a success!

Another view of where the tail meets the body.
After the texture pieces were dry I added liquid latex to the tail.
I rounded of the end of the tail with more foam.
The tail is shorter than what you would see on the real suit. I wanted it that way on purpose because it’s much easier to manage.
The rest of the texture pieces are added to the tail as well as the dorsal plates.
