Scroll down for SOG post!!

I'd like to introduce the new series at Yumi & Fumi Handcrafts, we're calling them..

KIGURUMI KIDS!

You might be wondering what is KIGURUMI?  Well I looked it up online and found this pretty awesome description from an Anime Cosplay Shopper Blog

I'll give you some of the definition, a couple of links so that you can read the whole concept and see some real Kigurumi costumes. 

What Is Kigurumi?  (Key-gu-ru-mee)

 A type of cosplay that employs a full body suit, similar to a fur suit. It is most commonly used with animal costumes but can also be worn to emulate people, mechs, mascots, etc. Kigurumi are dressed in character from head to toe. They usually wear masks that encompass their entire head rather than just their face. Characters like Mickey Mouse from Disneyland and Barney from Barney the Dinosaur are referred to as Kigurumi in Japan.

Kigurumi is a part of Japanese culture, which represents performing people who dress up like popular cartoon characters. The word is actually a combination of the Japanese words kiru (to wear) and nuigurumi (stuffed toy). Often seen in places like anime conventions, theme parks and even shopping malls, a kigurumi costume always adds to the festivity of the occasion. Even from American culture, things like football mascots and Winnie the Pooh can be worn and considered kigurumi suits. There is no limit, in fact, to the amount of things a kigurumi costume can be. Their range often includes:
■Pikachu ■Hello Kitty ■Winnie the Pooh ■Anime characters ■Animals
