A Japanese man fulfilled his lifelong dream of looking like an animal.
Twitter user @toco_eevee took the micro-blogging site by storm when he posted pictures of himself, dressed in a realistic-looking dog costume.
The man, identified only as Toko, hired a Japanese company called Zeppet, known for creating sculptures and models for movies and commercials, to create the life-like “collie” costume.
The costume reportedly cost 2 million Yen (approx. BD6,000) and took 40 days to make.
“I made it a collie because it looks real when I put it on… I thought that a big animal close to [my size] 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,” said Toko in an interview with Japanese news outlet Mynavi.
Toko posted a video of himself in his costume on Youtube, where he can be seen waving his paw and rolling around the floor.
