What is a Kigu?

"Kigu" is a short form of the Japanese word "Kigurumi", it literally means "Animal Character Costume". Kigus are known in Japan as "disguise pajamas". They have been there for decades being very popular and are worn on the street, mainly by teenagers. 

Kigu was the first company to sell Kigurumi outside Asia. In 2009 we started with only 300 of these amazing animal costumes in the UK and brought the so called "animal jumpsuit" wave to life with a loud bang!

Today Kigu partners with the oldest and most respected Kigurumi manufacturers Japan has to offer. Together we provide you with our impressively huge selection of Kigus.

What makes Kigus unique is their form. They hang loosely on the body, so they are incredibly comfortable and don't restrict movement. You can take off a Kigu in seconds, even if you wear your own clothes under it! Every animal style of Kigu has been lovingly crafted with typical faces, skins, tails and other details. The kangaroo Kigu is delivered for example with a baby kangaroo in the pouch.

We bring constant new designs to market and we will only rest when we can offer each, living animal on this planet in Kigu form! If you can think of an animal that would make a fabulous Kigu please let us know.
