In recent years, older Instagram users* have proven that age is no barrier to becoming a celebrity. And another star of this social network was 84-year-old former chemistry teacher Tetzia from Japan.
Tecia’s page has everything you would expect from a popular Instagrammer. With a large number of followers, you can see many photos showing a man in a wide variety of outfits, including leather ones.
In fact, it’s not his clothes – they belong to his grandson Naoya Kudo. Kudo recently returned home for a week.
While spending time in his homeland, he decides to play costume with his grandfather who, much to Kudo’s delight, is happy to become a model.
“He was surprisingly excited about it,” Kudo told Buzzfeed World. “He gave a lot of tips on where to shoot and things like that. Among those locations were local beaches, fields, and the high school where Tetzia once worked.
When Tecia’s loved ones saw all of her outfits, they were thrilled. This positive reaction was not limited to the family. After all, the man managed to amass over 73,000 Instagram followers in less than a month.
“It was a real transformation when my country grandfather, who was not interested in fashion, dressed in clothes he would never have thought of wearing himself,” says the little -son.
