The ShodaiMosuImago (初代モス成虫,   ShodaiMosuSeichū?) is the Mothra Imago puppet design used in the 1961 Toho film, Mothra.


Name

The ShodaiMosuImago's name comes from shodai (初代?), meaning first generation, Mosu, from Mothra's Japanese name, Mosura (モスラ?), and imago, from the fact that it is a design for Mothra's imago form.

Detail

The ShodaiMosuImago would set the tone for all of the Mothra imago designs to follow. The prop's body is mostly white in color, with several orange spots, most notably on the top of its head. The body is very thick and rounded, and the legs are very thin and scrawny and are held close to the body. The ShodaiMosuImago's face is flat and its mandibles are very small. The eyes are ovular in shape, and are blue and surrounded by a black outline. For scenes of the imago Mothra flying in the distance, Mothra was portrayed through animation.

The ShodaiMosuImago was used in one scene in Mothra vs. Godzilla, during the imago Mothra's battle with Godzilla.
