It is not uncommon for people to spend millions of dollars to look like celebrities or even Barbie dolls. A Japanese man, on the other hand, has spent ₹12 lakh (2 million Yen) to look like a dog. When Twitter user @toco eevee posted his photos in the new avatar, the netizen went insane. According to news reports, the transformation was made possible by a professional agency known as Zeppet.
According to local Japanese news outlet news.mynavi, Zeppet has customised a “collie” (a type of dog) costume for Toko. The entire costume cost around 2 million dollars and took Zeppet 40 days to create.
Toko broke the news. “I made it a collie because it looks real when I put it on my taste and costume,” mynaviand explained. Quadrupedal animals, especially cute ones, are my favourite. Among them, I decided that a large animal close to me would be good because it would be a realistic model, so I made it a dog. Long-haired dogs can deceive the human eye. I encountered such a situation and chose Collie as my favourite breed of dog.”
Toko commented on the costume’s flexibility, saying, “There are restrictions, but you can move it.” However, if you move it too much, it will cease to resemble a dog.”
Toko even has his own YouTube channel, where he asks viewers for “requests for the video you would like to see” in one video.
