Of course, this mask doesn’t come cheap considering its incredible detail and excellent craftsmanship. The headgear costs about ¥300,000 (around $2,687). Take note that the price depends on the type of pet mask and the complexity of the design. Dog masks, for example, are expected to cost more because they tend to use more hair. It is also important to note that you’ll also need to pay for the shipping fee separately.
After confirming your order and sending photos of your pet, the company will send you an estimate of the price including shipping fee. They will also send you regular updates of the production so you can monitor the entire the process.
