You may not be familiar with what kigurumi are, but if you find yourself feeling a little chilly during the winter, it might be worth your while to find out.
Kigurumi are literally a stuffed animal that you can wear, and they can be quite cozy if your apartment is on the cold side. Over on the Akinaiblog website there is a wide selection of kigurumi to choose from. I’ve selected a few of my favorite and listed them below. Though I encourage you to go over to their site and browse the others as well. (Just be sure you come back to 3yen right afterwards!)
Which one is your favorite?

I am going to stop complaining about the current fashion and focus on what I can pick out that’s good about it. These dresses are one of the prettiest I have seen in a while. Whether you’re all about cosplay, gothic lolita, ganguro or whatever, i am sure you’ll find some of these dresses to your fancy.
The world is going 360 on me. First we saw fashion brought back from the 20’s with lacy dresses in drab colors of beige, yellowed cloth and gold. Then we saw the 70’s came back with bell-bottoms and big hair wigs. And now, we are experiencing the 80’s with really striking, albeit clashing, colors, shoulder pads, big hair, blue eyeshadow, and that awful carrot cut jeans to which they called it skinny jeans. The skinny about that jeans is that it’s ugly.
You may not share the same sentiments as I do but fashion these days have been awful. Nothing on the racks of daily-wear names like Zara, TopShop, MNG, or even …I can’t name names anymore…clothes these days are just awful. :( Those sack like tops and non-figure-flattering dresses are driving me insane. I maybe a child of the 80’s but i was not impress with what I wore as a child, let me tell you that!
Any quirk and criticism, love and adoration about the current fashion, let’s hear it from you!
And here’s proof that the 80’s back, a remake of kylie minogue’s “I should be so lucky” is selling like hotcakes in the Japanese charts.
Are Japanese fashion culture doing a 360 on their fashion sense by going traditional?
Some say its just another Japanese fad, others that its a way to regain national identity, or even shake off the blues of the financial crisis. Either way the iconic kimono is making a comeback in Japan.
Avril Lavigne’s clothing line has hit Japanese shores. To be honest, it would probably do well too – her punkish gothic style coupled with a bit of lolita-ness would bode well with Japan’s street fashion. Black and pink, i think it would link.
