New Purple Owl Kigurumi


Here it is. We're very excited. It's the all-new Owl Kigurumi Costume from Animal Costumes Shop. And the best thing is, it's purple. It also has a fluffy yellow chest for that extra animally-look and a set of tassels on the sleeves for wings (which look great when you run at speed through the park, by the way). Come and get them!

Timo the Bear

Thanks to Rebecca for sending us this photo for our September picture competition (the prize being a kigurumi animal costume). It features Timo rocking his bear kigurumi at Bestival, which we think must have been the biggest animal costume party ever in history, which is nice.

Evil Alien

This is our latest kigurumi costume, and we think it's rather good. Sporting some extremely menacing-eyes, a set of don't-mess-with me teeth, and some out-of-this-world external organs, it can mean only one thing. It's the biggest, baddest, reddest thing to ever come out of the deepest depths of space. We are extremely pleased to present to you our Evil Alien costume.

As well as the features described above, it has a set of pockets in the trouser-pocket area, it's made of a soft and pleuche fleece material (100% polyester) and it's available in adult sizes. We've only got a limited few in stock so get them quick from http://www.animalcostumesshop.co.uk/alien-kigurumi-costume-7962-p.asp.

The Cat in the (X-Large) Hat


This cat is wearing a really, really large hat. We just thought you should know.

Bengal Tiger is Back!

After a brief stint earlier in the year, our Bengal Tiger Kigurumi Costume is back in stock, and this time we've got loads of 'em so it's going to be something of a permanent feature around here, which is nice. We're quite fond of him, mostly because of his orangeness, but we also like his friendly big eyes and ears. 

This is of course an animal costume in the Japanese kigurumi onesie style, and it is made in a polyester fleece material so it is soft and snuggly enough to use as pyjamas. Also comes with pockets and popper buttons.

Go here to buy it now: http://www.animalcostumesshop.co.uk/bengal-tiger-costume---kigurumi-onesie-5012-p.asp
