“I fell in love with Godzilla when I was a little kid, some 30 years ago. I have always dreamed of making a G suite for the conventions I go to. Thanks to your site, I made it happen!”
— Sue Howard
I made a life sized drawings of me inside the costume. This helps designing the head and spikes.
I left 1″ air space in the arms by making a frame with 1′ foam around my own arms. The legs are more like Cowboy Chaps.. with 3″ air spacing for the whole leg. The back of the knee (not shown) is open for ease of movement. I will attach the legs to a pair of pants to fit under torso piece. The bulky knees are 1″ pieces glue to the upper/lower leg pieces. I loved that look from the classic G suites.
A closer look. The lower jaw is separate… I hope to making it a moving jaw in the future. The black piece on top is plastic canvas, it cover a hole that goes all the way down the head. I placed a small handheld fan (facing down) there.
