Ever wanted to be a dog ? Japanese company Zeppet Workshop will turn you into one… for the right price.Taking the idea of roleplaying one step further than anyone thought possible, the company, which specializes in special effects and modeling, hit the headlines back in 2022 when it was revealed that it had created an ultra-realistic Collie costume for a customer who wanted to become a dog.

Footage of the client wearing the costume (see below), which reportedly cost around $15,000, quickly went viral.

More recently, Zeppet was tasked with creating something even more challenging – a wolf costume.

“Because of my love for animals since childhood and some realistic animal suits appearing on TV, I dreamed of being one someday,” the client was quoted as saying.

“At the final fitting, I was amazed at my transformed self in the mirror. It was a moment when my dream come true.”

The resulting outfit, which cost a whopping $23,000, was even more convincing than the last one, demonstrating, if nothing else, just how skilled the firm’s employees are at making costumes.

The process took around 50 days and involved carefully examining images of real wolves to get all the details right.

Other costume designs built by Zeppet over the years include a bear, a panda and various mascots.
