Kigurumi onesies review part 1
Let me start by saying that I love reviewing all the products you see on this site, but this one, well this one was a treat. Today we take a look at onesies we received from Kigurumi.ca, a company created and based in Montreal since 2011. But before we begin, let's go over what kigurumi really is. Wikipedia tells us the following: "In English-speaking countries kigurumi are referred to as costumed characters, animal costumes, mascot costumes, or fursuits depending on the context. Fursuits are mascot-style costumes that represent animals and cartoon characters." Got it? Good! Let's begin.
These onesies come in two main categories. We have the animal onesies and we have the character onesies. Most, but not all of them, come in one size fits all. I'm a pretty big guy (6 feet tall) and I am more than comfortable in them so that should in no way deter you from getting one. If you are really worried, some do come in medium (ideal for those who are 4'11" to 5'9" tall) and large sizes (ideal for those who are 5'10" and taller).
The onesies also made in three different fabrics. Fleece (ideal for cold winter nights), terrycloth and pile (both lighter and a bit more breathable). The official site also offers a wash and care guide. Later this fall Kigurumi will also offer onesies for kids.
Two words, top notch! I've worn my fair share of onesies and this one has by far the best quality I've had the chance to wear. From the buttons to the inseam, nothing feels "cheap". As you can see by the pictures I've posted above and below, the onesies are quite stylish. Upon posting pictures of myself on facebook, I quickly made quite a few jealous people. Last but not least, comfort. I swear to god, if wearing onesies was socialy acceptable, I would fill my wardrobe with Kigurumi onesies and wear nothing else. Soft and hanging very loosely, this outfit is great for things such as lounging around the house to eat marshmallows around a campfire.
The bottom line is we all need to be a little more silly in life to really enjoy ourselves and these onesies are a perfect way to start. As a middle school PE teacher, I cannot wait for the next PJ themed day at school! Now If you visit this site often you know that some products have felt our wrath during reviews, but I can't find a single thing I don't like about this one. For that reason, Kigurumi onesies make it into the "Top products" reviewed section of testerbrothers.com
Come back soon for the second part of the review which will be filmed so you can have a better look at all the great features of the Kigurumi onesies!
