KaijuZoo Custom Manda

That's nice

if you don't mind my asking, what does it cost to get a custom glow done like this? I swear the more I hang out with you and read your articles the more the desire for glow overcomes me. :) (Sounds like a medical problem, maybe I should go see a Doctor.)

If loving glow is wrong...I don't wanna be right!

...And you don't either! ;)

So, yeah, Jonee's commissions vary a bit from piece to piece. I just looked up how much this guy cost me: it was $175 shipped...but that also included the figure, itself. John already had an extra unpainted Manda in his possession, so that's added to the total. Obviously, if you supply the vinyl yourself, that'll adjust the price accordingly.

Anyway, it's tough to gauge exactly how much a particular project will be. ST (standard-sized) kaiju will probably run around $125-150, depending on complexity. The Marmit Getter 1 Jonee did was around $225, but that thing's obviously HUGE and all that masking--which isn't normally required on an organic design like a traditional kaiju--made for a much more complex project than usual. [Seriously...take it from me: masking sucks! Masking is about 75% of the time spent on my average project. Ouch! ;)]

Again, these are just ballparks to get ya thinking. The besting thing to do is just shoot him an e-mail with your ideas! Jonee's fantastic to work with and won't steer ya wrong! Good luck, dude!
