The giant sea creatures are my favorite monsters…

And here’s a new Gezora custom I just finished up…

REdYOdA Gezora Custom

Being one of my favorite seafaring kaiju sculpts…I wanted to give this Gezora a special oceanic blue/green metallic finish and went really heavy on a glossy top coat to keep him wet looking. I also added some color shift pearl powder to the paint so he really catches the light and transforms color from different angles…

Hi!

Back…

REdYOdA Gezora Back

All of his many tentacles are painted gold inside…that took a while 😉

ewww!

Gezora

Gezora is aka ‘YOG: The monster from space‘. The Alien-possessed cuttlefish makes his appearance in 1970’s ‘Space Amoeba‘ directed by Ishiro Honda. The movie features 2 other giant sea creatures…Kamoeba & Ganime. The film is released in the US under the aforementioned ‘YOG’ in 1971.

It’s a fun and surreal movie that has quite a few good chuckles in it…but it is a little light on the monster battles until the end. This film is quite different compared to Honda’s other kaiju pictures…but is definitely worth checking out if you’re a fan. The film is near the end of Honda’s illustrious kaiju filled career. Another tidbitHarou Nakajima, who is the man-in-suit for quite a few legendary Honda beasties including the iconic Gojira…but for this film he suits up as Gezora AND Ganime…kaiju double duty!!
