Geek Pick Pokemon Snorlax Kigurumi

first_img Anyone who knows me or my work knows I’m a huge weeb. I really like anime and otaku junk, and I’m not that ashamed. That’s why this revelation might surprise you: I’ve never owned a kigurumi.I mean, I do now. But before ThinkGeek sent us the Pokemon Snorlax Kigurumi, I never actually owned a set of grown-up costume footie pajamas reserved for extreme nerds. I never knew how comfortable they were, or how meta-satisfying it is to take a nap as a plush Snorlax.To start at the beginning, kigurumi are costume pajamas that let you dress up as your favorite animal or character in soft, warm, fluffy fabric. They’re hooded onesies, available in adult sizes and styled after everything from red pandas to Pokemon. ThinkGeek has a few kigurumi, including Snorlax (it me), Gengar, and Gir from Invader Zim. Obviously Snorlax was the ideal first choice to look at, because sleeping is what he does.The Snorlax kigurumi is 100% polyester microfleece, two-tone in the Pokemon’s recognizable dark-blue/green and tan colors. The hood has Snorlax’s face, complete with embroidered closed eyes and cute little ears on top. A zipper runs down the front.These are not actually footie pajamas. The sleeves and legs are all open, so both your hands and feet are exposed when you wear the kigurumi. This means you can wear socks, slippers, or your favorite stylin’ kicks with them.I’ll be honest. This is so comfortable. It’s like being wrapped in a big, soft blanket that’s Pokemon-themed, with a hood that completely covers your face for napping. I would totally wear this around the office if it were professionally acceptable, because comfort is key. As it is, I’m looking forward to some frosty winter evenings where I can sprawl back on my couch in my Snorlax kigurumi and fade into unconsciousness.JoJo poses don’t usually work with kigurumi. I don’t care. I make them work.Because it’s polyester micro-fleece, you have to be careful when caring for the kigurumi. It doesn’t need to be dry cleaned, but remember to only wash it in cold water and tumble dry on low. High temperatures make the synthetic fibers in micro-fleece melt and fuse, producing ugly wax-like splotches and ruining the soft, comfortable feel.The Pokemon Snorlax Kigurumi is available from ThinkGeek for $49.99. It’s sooooo comfortable.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.
