Godzilla Suit History: 1962

Godzilla Suit '62

Godzilla Suit '62Godzilla's appearance greatly changed for his 1962 appearance in the first color movie: King Kong vs. Godzilla. King Kong vs. Godzilla was made more as a comedy film than having the "sense of terror" theme in the two previous movies. Because of that, Toho decided to make Godzilla less demeaning. This suit revealed Godzilla's true color: charcoal gray. Some American posters of the previous two black and white Godzilla movies showed Godzilla as green. On this suit, Godzilla's ears were taken away, and instead of having four toes on each foot, Godzilla had three. The center dorsal fins were englarged and the two side dorsal fins decreased in size. The body of Godzilla was bulkier than the last two suits. The head was made longer, and a slight frown was added on the side his mouth, a feature that is seen in some later suits, including the suit from Godzilla 2000. The pupils were enlarged, and the eyes sported a yellow-reddish color. The new features on Godzilla gave him an alligator-like appearance.
