JAPANESE MAN TAKES FETISH TO NEW PLACES WITH $15,000 BORDER COLLIE COSTUME
Festish. It’s a word that can apply to almost any category of a person’s unusual focus and penchant for liking something. An activity (use your imagination), or things. Feet, shoes, whips (which could be an activity and an object), the list is endless. But my imagination simply would not have included this idea, ever. And I’m pretty sure that doesn’t make me a square! Because I would never have thought of devoting so much time and money on the joy a border collie costume would bring me. But one Japanese man spent 2 million yen. On a single, fetish costume.
MAN HIRED COMMERCIAL SCULPTURE SHOP TO BUILD BORDER COLLIE FETISH COSTUME
Sure, this man’s favorite dog breed is, of course, the border collie. I suppose that’s more functional than a chihuahua fetish. Maybe. All we know about this Japanese man is that he goes by the name Toko. Well, and that he really does love him some border collie. So much so that he hired a local company in Japan, Zeppet, to create this costume for him. Normally, Zeppet creates models for movies and commercials. Now, they can add dog costume fetish to their deliverables. But create it they did, taking over 40 days to get it just right to Toko’s satisfaction.
IT TOOK 40 DAYS TO MEET THE STRANGE FETISH STANDARDS OF BORDER COLLIE LOVER
Why so long? For a single costume? Well, Toko had exacting standards and expectations. Those 40 days involved many, many rounds of trials and revisions for Toko’s very specific demands. And evidently, it was a bit of a challenge for Zeppet. They literally engineered the best way to make the dog costume correspond to a human’s figure the best way. I still find this all hard to fathom. But then again, I don’t think I have any real fetishes to speak of. All I know is that if I ordered a formal suit or tuxedo to me made for me, 40 days would feel like a long time.
