Godzilla Suit History: 1955

This suit was very similar to the first one in Godzilla, King of the Monsters. This suit was used for Godzilla's second appearance, Godzilla Raids Again. It was slimmed down to fit Haruo Nakajima better, and to make the acting process a little more comfortable. It would also allow him to make more violent moves while shooting battle scenes. The irises were much bigger than the original suit, which was a smaller, and had the "beady" look. The dorsal fins were kept about the same size, and shape as the original. There were still four toes on each foot, and the little ears were still behind his eyes. This overall appearance still gave Godzilla a look of terror, and a menace to mankind. This suit was used for the last dramatic Godzilla movie, the last black and white Godzilla movie, the first monster battle (versus Angilas or Anguirus, depending on how you hear it), the first used in a sequel, the last to have four toes in the original series, and the last to have the ears in the original series! (*phew* thought I wouldn't make it there for a sec!) :-)
