It is not uncommon for people to spend millions of dollars to imitate celebrities or even Barbie dolls. However, in an unusual incident, a Japanese man paid 12 lakh (2 million Yen) to look like a dog. When Twitter user @toco eevee shared his photos under the new avatar, the netizen went insane. According to news sources, a professional agency known as Zeppet was responsible for the change.
Zeppet has produced a tailored “collie” (a dog breed) outfit for Toko, according to local Japanese news outlet news.mynavi. Zeppet took 40 days to create the full suit, which cost roughly 2 million dollars.
The local Japanese news outlet, mynaviand 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 favorite 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 favorite breed of dog.”
“There are restrictions, but you can move it. However, if you move it too much, it will not look like a dog.”
Toko even has his own YouTube channel, where he asks viewers for “requests for the video you would like to watch” in one video. It’s impossible to find a picture of Toko that isn’t of him dressed up as a dog.
