When I saw this photo of a Godzilla/Kaiju monster plushie rock band, I knew I had to paint it! You can find lots of great collectables like these in An Unautorised Guide to Godzilla Collectables by Sean Linkenback Schiffer Books.

Here he is in his original state. Plus a photo of me with Teruhisa Kitahara the owner of Toys Club and the Tin Toy Museum in Yokohama. His book Robots and Spaceships is available through Taschen.
I found Betty Jo Designs one day on Flickr and nearly had a heart attack. Needless to say I immediately ordered 3 broaches. I love my strawberry eating Godzilla. They are made out of old linoleum!

The dress is fabulous, probably an old uniform, but I had the skull added, because it was a little plain.
