Although he is completely satisfied with this new facet of his life, he admitted that he is sometimes unsure of what people will think of him, especially his friends.
“I rarely tell my friends because I’m afraid they’ll think I’m weird. My friends and family seemed very surprised to hear that I turned into an animal,” he said. told The Mirror. That’s why he hides his face in the clips, because he’s afraid of what his co-workers and other people he knows in real life might think of him.
Still, it’s not something he will stop doing, because it’s what he really loves. “Ever since I was a kid, I’ve had this non-specific fantasy of becoming an animal. I wonder if it was a desire for transformation,” he said. He also said he specifically chose a Rough Collie costume because it’s his favorite dog breed.
The ones who made all this possible were Zeppet, a Japanese company that is characterized by creating quite realistic sculptures and models for various films. According to what was reported, the creation of the particular costume took 40 days, as Toco regularly requested improvements to make it totally perfect.
“Since the structure of the skeleton [between humans and animals] is very different, we spent a lot of time studying how to make it look like a dog. In addition, we collect photographs taken from different angles in order to reproduce the beautiful coat of the collie and to style it in such a way that the coat flows naturally,” explained a company representative some time ago.
Still, there are plenty of people supporting Toco’s habit, leaving messages like, “I’m so happy for you! It’s so sweet to see you achieve your dreams” and “The costumes and the movements look so realistic… I’m acting, it’s amazing”.
