Video – Man Spends $15,000 Transforming Himself into a Collie Dog
A man from Japan has decided to spend his fortune transforming himself into a dog.
The native of Japan had his wish come true to become a four-legged canine after he got himself a custom-made collie costume, which cost around 2 million Yen. Approximately US $15,738.
The collie costume took 40 days to make. The viral photos were posted on Twitter by a user by the name @toco_eevee. A professional agency called Zeppet helped design the costume.
According to a local Japanese news outlet, Zeppet provides a large number of sculptures for movies, commercials, amusement facilities and also produces costumes that have been seen on TV and costumes of famous mascot characters in Japan.
Speaking to news.mynavi Toko, when asked about why he chose a collie, he said,
“I made it a collie because it looks real when I put it on my taste and costume. My favourite is quadrupedal animals, especially cute ones. Among them, I thought that a big animal close to me would be good, considering that it would be a realistic model, so I decided to make it a dog. Long-haired dogs can mislead the human figure. I met such a condition and made Collie, my favourite breed of dog.”
When he was asked whether he was able to move his limbs freely, Toko responded, “There are restrictions, but you can move it. However, if you move it too much, it will not look like a dog.”
In a video posted on YouTube, Toko shares his transformation video and gives insight into his thought process.
“Have you ever wanted to be an animal? I have! I made my dream come true like this,” his YouTube video caption reads.
