Pajama Day every day
The word Kigurumi
comes from a combination of two Japanese words: kiru ("to wear") and nuigurumi ("stuffed toy"). Looking at the pictures here, it's clear that donning a kigurumi instantly transforms you into an adorable animal. Traditionally, kigurumi
referred to the performers wearing the costume, but the word has since grown to include the costumes themselves. In Japan, kigurumi costumes are worn as a way to break the conventions of traditional dress or just as comfy pajamas.
We've been wearing these around the ThinkGeek office for our officially-sanctioned Pajama Day (Monday, in case you're wondering), and we love them. It's all the comfort of those sleeved blankets that were so popular a few years back but with added mobility and cuteness. Made of soft and snuggly fleece, these kigurumi are perfect for a day at the office, a lazy Sunday at home, or some super simple cosplay.

Tall geeks: If you are over six feet tall, the wrist and ankle cuffs may not make it all the way to your wrists and ankles (but don't let that stop you from wearing it!).
More-to-love geeks: The bagginess of a Kigurumi means there's a ton of room in the chest and waist. The limiting factor for most folks is the shoulder width, so check that below.
