This is hardly believable information… and yet! In Japan, a man now known as Toko has gained a bit of notoriety after spending a veritable fortune to get the most realistic dog costume possible.
And for good reason, wanting to become an animal, this Japanese did not hesitate to pay two million yen (14,700 euros) to see his dream come true. Since then, Toko, transformed into a long-haired Collie (note: breed of sheepdog) and his unusual hobby, have been delighting Internet users.
This Japanese made his dream come true and became a dog
“I wanted to be an animal, so I became a Collie! »he explains on the Youtube channel of his alter ego whose videos have already been viewed several million times.
According The IndependentToko commissioned Zeppet, a Japanese company renowned for making sculptures and costumes for the cinema, to make his costume.
Toko, the most popular dog of the moment
A real challenge for the company, which took almost 40 days and multiple rounds of testing and revisions to complete this most amazing order.
” The fact is that the skeleton of a dog can be reproduced on the skeleton of a human. Since the structure of the skeleton is very different, we spent a lot of time studying how to make it look like a dog “, explained a Zeppet employee to the Japanese site Mynavi.
A case far from isolated
But that’s not all, to achieve such a result, the teams also studied “photographs taken from different angles so that the beautiful coat of the collie can be reproduced and falls naturally”.
Painstaking work that paid off. Since the publication of his first video as a Collie, Toko has stunned Internet users who find it hard to believe that it is not a real dog.
Against all expectations, however, Toko is not the first man to transform into an animal… and certainly not the last since in 2017, the New York Post reported that about 250,000 Americans identify as such.
ياباني أنفق 2مليون ين (60000ريال) ليتحول إلى كلب🐕 لأنه قرر التخلى عن كونه إنسان حسب قوله، حيث راسل شركة Zeppet لتفصيل سترة من سلالة كلاب Collie وبعد دراسة مستفيضة صنعوا مجسم يتناسب مع جسمه وهيكله العظمي ليرتديها بكل راحة ويتحول لكلب مباشرة. 🤔 pic.twitter.com/8RMvASBCfj
