Japanese man spends £12,500 on dog costume to live as a collie

A Japanese man spent approximately 2 million yen (£12,500) on on a lifelike border collie costume in order to live like his favourite breed of dog.

The costume was made by Zeppet, a Japanese company that specialises in creating sculptures and models for movies and commercials.

The man, identified only as Toko, said that he wanted the costume to be a collie so it looked real when he put it on.

"I thought that a big animal close to me would be good," Toko told Japanese outlet Mynavi.
