How The 1954 Godzilla Suit Was Made

Check out the documentary on The Making Of The Godzilla Suit - the 1954 version.

The 13-minute film is created by Godzilla expert Ed Godziszewski (an interesting name), who lovingly chronicles the evolution of the iconic rubber Godzilla suit to be worn by an actor for the first Toho Godzilla movie, made in 1954. See the original 1954 Godzilla (Gojira) Japanese movie poster up above.

The documentary features many rare, behind-the-scenes still photographs of Godzilla and its evolution to what appeared on film that first time, as well as how the Godzilla suit was developed by Japanese special effects legend Tsuburaya Eiji and his team. There are plenty of failures in the suit's evolution.

Still, the Godzilla suit creation lead to a concept of Suit-mation and a successful 50 years of kaiju (monster) movies audience continue to lap up.,
