New White Rabbit Kigurumi Onesie


Ta-da! That's the sound of our brand new kigurumi onesie animal costume, poofing into existence as if plucked from a grey-haired magician's top hat. Debbie Mcgee anybody? No thanks, we'll be OK with our new costume thanks - it's a rabbit, and it's white... It's the White Rabbit Kigurumi Onesie Costume. Hoooyar!

It's designed for adults that are between about 5'5" and 6' tall (165 - 185cm) and it's really wide across the chest so will fit most. Like all of our fleece kigurumis, it's made of a soft fleece polyester material and features some huge rabbit ears on its hood, with pink lining and some realistically red-tinted eyes.

It would work great as a fancy dress rabbit costume, whether for an animal themed party, or perhaps even an Alice in Wonderland party. Alternatively, it's realistic white rabbit likeness makes it a great thing to wear whilst scaling the walls of your local pharmaceutical behemoth to make some kind of animal rights statement. If you're not into that kind of thing, don't worry - being made of a soft fleece material, it's also quite good as a super-warm pair of pyjamas.

Another Animal Costumes Wedding


It was a whole year ago that we wrote an article here about an animal costume wedding that we attended (it was great by the way). It seems those guys must have kick-started a trend, because this summer we've supplied at least 3 wedding parties with a bunch of costumes, and last week one even found its way into The Times.

The wedding on The Times's radar was that of Kate Reardon, Editor at Tatler magazine. whilst Kate and her groom opted for traditional wedding attire, their bridesmaids were kitted out in various animal onesies and fancy dress animal costumes - check out the picture from The Times above. As far as we know we didn't supply Kate with her animal costumes, but we most definitely applaud and congratulate her choice.

If you're having an animal costume wedding or party, let us know! We have the widest range of animal costumes on the planet and offer bulk-buy discounts... and don't forget to send us your pictures people!

Find the Panda (Summer Edition)

Back in January, during snowmageddon, we went out into the snow around Brighton dressed up as pandas and took various photos of ourselves as pandas hiding in the snow. We used the photos to create a Where's Wally style game which we called Find the Panda.

Ever since then we've been waiting very patiently for some more snow so that we could do it all over again. But we got tired of waiting. So, here we go with 'Find the Panda (Summer Edition)'. The game is simple - try and find the panda in these photographs. Let us know how you got on by commenting on the photos on Facebook.

Check out the new Chameleon Kigurumi


Look at this before it changes colour and disappears forever!

It's the Chameleon - our brand new kigurumi onesie costume. It's designed to fit adults between 5'6" and 6', and it's made of a super-soft and warm polyester fleece. Oh yeah, and it's completely flipping amazing!

Like all of our kigurumis, the animal's face appears on the hood. With the chameleon, that means some great big eyes with frilly details and padded eyebrows to give the shape of the chameleon face. The main colours are green and orange (any chameleon's favourite two colours), and there are various multi-coloured elements included as a nod to the chameleon's amazing colour changing super-powers: each of the buttons are a different colour, as are each of the cuffs (ankle and wrist), and there are various coloured pimples around the shoulder area.

Pretty cool eh? Click here to get the chameleon kigurumi costume.

Cheshire Cat Kigurumi Costume


We've just added a new product, and it is very exciting indeed. It's the Cheshire Cat kigurumi costume.

The Cheshire Cat is a character from Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland story. It has a big wide grin and the ability to disappear and reappear at will, which it does throughout the story. In various incarnations of the story, the Cheshire Cat has been male and female, a good guy and a bad guy, and has been played by actors including Whoopi Goldberg (in a TV series) and Stephen Fry (in the 2010 movie). 

However this kigurumi is the Cheshire Cat as imagined in Disney's classic animated movie Alice in Wonderland, in which he's a bit of an anti-hero getting Alice into mischief all the time. It's an official Disney-branded product and in line with the 1951 movie, the Cheshire Cat kigurumi has a distinctive pink and purple stripy body as well as maniac bright yellow eyes.

It's made of soft polyester fleece, so will keep you warm and snug (as well as looking hilarious). It fits adults up to about 6'1", which is about 185cm tall.

We think the Cheshire Cat costume is perfect for anyone with a mischievous edge to their character, or for anyone looking for a nostalgic character costume or onesie. You can buy it here.
