According to reports, the man got himself a custom-made dog collie costume, which cost around 2 million Yen ($15700+) and took about 40 days to create that costume.

The photos were shared on Twitter by @toco_eevee. A professional agency called Zeppet helped design the costume and transform the man into a "collie", a breed of dog. The pictures have now gone viral.

According to local Japanese news outlet MyNavi news, Zeppet provides sculptures for movies, commercials, amusement facilities and also makes costumes for television and of famous mascot characters in Japan.

Speaking to MyNavi news, Toco explained why he chose to become a collie. "I made it a collie because it looks real when I put it on. My favorite are quadrupedal animals, especially cute ones. Among them, I thought that a big animal would be good, considering that it would be a realistic model, so I decided to go for a dog costume. Long-haired dogs can mislead the human figure. That's why I chose collie, my favorite breed of dog."

On being asked if he could move freely in the costume, Toco said with a laugh, "There are restrictions, but you can move it. However, if you move it too much, it will not look like a dog."

Toco also has a YouTube channel where he posts video acting like a dog including rolling over for belly rubs
