Japanese man spends Rs 12 lakh to ‘become a dog’
A Japanese guy has realised a lifetime goal of dressing himself like an animal. The world is baffled after Twitter user @toco_eevee uploaded images of himself on the platform. Zeppet, a professional agency, assisted him in his transition into a “collie,” a dog breed.
According to news.mynaviad, a local Japanese news site, Zeppet makes a huge number of works for films, advertisements, and amusement parks, as well as costumes which have been shown on television and outfits of well-known mascot figures in Japan. It is estimated that the entire costume cost more than 12 lakh (2 million Yen) and took 40 days to complete.
In his interview with news.mynaviad, Toko said, “I created it a collie since it appears natural when I put it on my liking and outfit,” mynaviand remarked when asked why he selected a collie. Quadrupedal animals, especially adorable ones, are my favourites. Among them, I believed a large animal that was near to me would be appropriate, especially because it would be a realistic model, so I chose to build it a dog. Long-haired dogs have the ability to deceive the human figure. I came across such a situation and decided to get a Collie, my favourite breed of dog.” “There are constraints, but you can move it,” he said when the interviewer asked if he could move his limbs freely. However, if you move it around too much, it will lose its doglike appearance.
