Kigurumi Origins

Kigurumi is a Japanese term that refers to the art of costumed character performance. It was first used as far back as hundreds of years ago by traditional theater actors in the 1600's who would dress up as various characters and perform on stage as them. This was known as "Kabuki". Some Kabuki performers wore kabuki masks and other performers wore elaborate makeup to create their costumes. Kabuki theater shows were often based on historical events, but many shows also featured exoctic or fantastical creatures - giving birth to the Kigurumi.

The modern version of "Kigurumi" or “adult onesies” have been popular in Japan since the 1990s as part of "street fashion" trends, and were incredibly popular as pajamas among children in the early 2000s as many styles were designed to resemble cartoon characters and animals. They became increasingly popular in other parts of Asia before making their way to Europe and North America. Today, kigurumis are worn by adults for fun and comfort alike—and can be found everywhere from college campuses to music festivals!
