Godzilla Costume Suit Testing

Godzilla

Remember that awesome Godzilla costume we recently shared? It’s so impressive that we want to share a video of the foam suit in action before it was covered in latex skin and painted.

Sean used polyurethane foam to pull the suit together. After he cut out the patterns he labeled the pieces so he wouldn’t get them mixed up, and from there, it was all about piecing them together – sort of like a puzzle. He had to trim the foam along the way, and he used spray adhesive to make the suit stick together. He also carved details into the hands and feet and cut a ton of smaller pieces of foam for the scales.

Watch how the foam moves in the below video; it’s surprisingly graceful!
