Sean is a longtime Godzilla fan; he’s been watching the various incarnations of the kaiju since he was 3 years old. He always imagined it would be wonderful to be the person inside the suit and used to make claws and fins from construction paper. When he saw the announcement for Legendary’s Godzilla, he decided it was time to finally make a Godzilla costume of his own, and I’d say he did an impressive job.
Aftering figuring out how his body would fit in the suit, he started the massive build. He dubbed it Project: NAUTILUS Cosplay and dove into construction around November 2013. He created everything from the stilts (using these instructions) to the scales and listed the money spent on each step. Godzilla’s body was made with polyurethane foam – the kind used for couch cushions. He traced patterns for the body onto the foam and cut the pieces out and glued them together. He made the skin from latex and attached it to the foam body with spray adhesive.
