The Unicorns Are Back



Our two unicorn kigurumi costumes have been out of stock since Christmas. So we're feeling pretty awesome and rainbow-tingly right now, as we're announcing that they are both most horn-tastically BACK. IN. STOCK.

Oh yes, just when you thought the unicorn kigurumi costume was extinct, nothing but a mythical mirage from ancient folklore, a bizarre North Korean propaganda stunt, or perhaps just a donkey with a kitchen roll gaffa-taped to its forehead, along comes Animal Costumes Shop (yikes! that's us), utterly smashing it with not one but two of these magical horned horsey onesie suits.

The unicorn kigurumi comes in two different colour schemes, there's the blue unicorn kigurumi and the pink unicorn kigurumi. (It's not a boy/girl thing, it's just a gender-neutral pink/blue thing, OK? Perhaps they're different breeds of unicorn, or they have different magical powers. Maybe the blue one's horn can turn water into lemonade, and the pink one turns mud into marshmallows... or something). What is more, each one comes in three different adult sizes, so in a way we have 6 unicorns! That's more unicorns than Legend, A Never Ending Story, Willow and Lord of the Rings combined. *smug face*.

They're both available now, so enjoy being unicorns, Planet Earth, enjoy it.

Incredible Dog Grooming Pics

Check out these amazing dog grooming pics by animal photographer Ren Netherland, which have gone super viral today. The photos come from a competition in, you guessed it, the USA. Entrants compete for the $5,000 prize money by attempting to create the wackiest grooming designs imaginable, complete with dye and 'sculpted' hair-dos.

Yoda Dog!

Some kind of Disney medley?

Big bird and Elmo, and I guess that's Oscar the Grouch too! 

Safari Dog!

Safari Dog 2!

More Disney Dog madness...

Fish Dog!

Dragon dog!

Here's Yoda dog again, showing off the Ewok face emerging from his backside. Oh dear...

Rowlf Spotted in Brighton


Rowlf, the piano-playing dog from the Muppets, was spotted busking in Brighton last week. Here's the evidence. We gave him some change, and we salute his top notch homemade animal costume.

Animal Fighting Championship Music Video

Check out this unbelievably amazing and kigurumi-drenched new music video for the track "Underdog" by US band Wallpaper. It features 50 or so beautiful people, each dressed in a different kigurumi animal costume, fighting it out on top of a building using powder paint, glitter, paint and confetti. And it's in slow motion to boot. Amazing.

Panda's Running Riot in London


Panda-costumed activists were running riot in London, as part of Panda Awareness Week (which is this week). There are only 1,600 pandas left in the wild, and they are an endangered species at risk from the destruction of their natural habitats, despite being one of the most loved animals worldwide.

Panda Awareness Week aims to raise awareness and widen the support for panda-based conservation worldwide. The campaign in the UK is spearheaded by conservationist Nigel Marvin and seeks to raise the profile of conservation centres such as the Chengdu Panda Base in China.

Over a hundred of these furry guys descended onto London public transport and landmarks, this time last year, and performed a Tai Chi routine in Leicester Square. Did you see them? Let us know in the comments.
