A Japanese man by the name Toco is living out his childhood dream as a dog. He spent $12,480 on a life sized collie costume. He explains that Collies are his favorite breed of dogs hence the reason he chose to be a collie.
Toco has always dreamed of “becoming an animal” and now dresses up as a dog a few times a month to live his childhood fantasy.
Speaking about the opinions of his peers, Toco explained “I rarely tell my friends because I am afraid they will think I am weird. My friends and family seemed very surprised to learn I became an animal.”
He finds activities that involve his hands the most difficult as his paws often get in the way.
“Since childhood, I have had this unspecific fantasy of becoming an animal. I wonder whether it was a desire for transformation,” Toco explained.
Clips on Toco’s social media show him rolling over for belly rubs, pretending to sit and lift his paws and walking on a lead just like a dog.
