Halloween is almost here, so we figured it would make an appropriate theme for our next contest!
The theme for this contest is simply Halloween! Show us some Halloween awesome-ness… while wearing a Sazac kigurumi! Only one person has to be wearing a kigurumi in the photo.
Maybe you’re hanging out in a pumpkin patch or a graveyard… or you just have a camera handy as you’re setting up Halloween decorations and carving pumpkins. To win the Kigurumi Shop Staff Pick you’ll want to have a strong Halloween theme!
Your Own Picture
For this photo contest, we are requiring that you must own the picture that you are submitting. By submitting a picture, you are declaring that you are the owner of the picture. You also must be OK with us using the picture on our Facebook page and our blog.
The kigurumi must be a Sazac kigurumi. It doesn’t have to come from Kigurumi Shop, but it does need to be Sazac. There have been some imitations recently and we’re just trying to help out the originator of animal pajama onesies!
Not sure if your kigurumi is Sazac? There should be a Sazac tag in your kigurumi. If you have a Hello Kitty or Disney character it’s probably Sazac–the imitations don’t have permission for these kigurumi.
How to Enter
Email your picture to firstname.lastname@example.org. We’re only allowing one entry per person.
This email must also include your Facebook name, your shipping information (Name, Address, Email, Phone Number) and the kigurumi that you would like if you win!
How to Win
There will be two winners. One person will win for having the most Facebook “Likes” on his or her picture by 5pm on Sunday the 30th. The other winner will be a Kigurumi Shop Staff Pic!
We will add the submitted photos to a Facebook photo album as soon as possible so your friends can start voting. We usually add submissions for the day all at once at some point in the evening (US Pacific Time).
A free kigurumi plus free shipping! The winners will be declared by Monday evening. Please note that you won’t be able to get your kigurumi in time for Halloween.
Please note that you must live in an area that we ship to or be willing to have the kigurumi shipped to a friend or relative, should you win. We do ship internationally and we reach a good portion of the world, but not everywhere. If you usually have problems with ordering online, you might want to check if we can ship to you by entering your address in the checkout portion of our website just to test.
Now get Halloween-ing!
Even if your picture doesn’t have the most Likes, be sure to check the blog on Sunday night. You can still be the Kigurumi Shop Staff Pick! :D
Don’t forget to follow us on Twitter so you can be the first to find out about future contests.
Thanks to everyone who participated! There were lots of great photos and we’re planning on featuring some of our favorites later in the week.

We just set up pre-orders for a few of our kigurumi… and we added a new kigurumi! A lot of you have been asking for a Monkey Kigurumi and we finally got one in. Win!
The following kigurumi are now available for pre-order. They will be ready for shipment by Friday the 21st at the earliest… or Monday the 24th at the latest. This means that if you don’t live in the Los Angeles or Southern California area, you should consider using expedited shipping if you’d like to wear one of these kigurumi for Halloween.
We’re expecting these to go fast, so order soon!

If you follow Kigurumi-Shop on Facebook, then you know that we often post videos at the close of every night. Did I mention that they’re always CUTE videos?!?
Yeah, I know. Sometimes the videos are a little much to handle (because they’re so friggin’ cute!!!!), but we love them so much that we’re devoting this blog post to our top 10 favorites.
10) At number 10 we have…Baby monkeys!!!!
I love these guys. They’re just so cute and innocent…and maybe even a little naughty! :O
9) I love seeing the special affection two animals have for each other displayed in ways that all of us can understand.
Something even as simple as holding hands can be magical, as we see here with these two lovers! <3~
8) I find animals of different species hanging out together so fascinating. That’s why I’ve chosen this adorable little video. Ugh! When the kitteh grabs the doggy closer for a cuddle hug…my heart just melts!!!
7) Any of you who have ever had a dog before know the wtf expression they often give to their owners. This is perhaps the funniest depiction of said display of anarchy against their owner’s authority. He is taking a nap and his owner has the audacity to make him take a walk.
Pffft! I would react the same way!
Applause to this cutie, who makes it in at number 7 on my favorites list.
6) I love kittens. I love them all the time. This video has a lot of kittens. What can I say. I’m in love. <3333333
This video is a classic, filled with heart-stopping fluffay-ness, which I will never get tired of.
5) Penguins. Everyone knows that it’s a scientific FACT; penguins are the cutest and coolest animals EVER. Period. Argue with me. I dare you. <.< >.> <.<
This Penguin is wearing a backpack…a penguin backpack. :O I just died from how adorable this is.
4) This video is awesome. And let me explain why, to those of you who are at this very moment questioning my motives for making it my number 4 favorite,
THE KITTEH IS PLAYING!!
Yup that’s right. An awkward little uncoordinated kitten, playing with everything he can get his paws on. And he’s FLUFFAY! If you’ve read this blog post up to here, then you already know that I love kittens.
3) This video comes in at number 3. I still remember the first time I saw it. I squeeled so loud that I scared everyone. It’s adorable. Another fact, if you’re keeping track of these things.
An exotic kitten meowing. The cutest sound ever!
2) And so we’ve made it to number 2.
This is tough for me, but I think I’ve made the right choice.
If you like cute fluffy things like me, which, I tend to consider myself an expert on these things, then you’ve already watched this video more than 5 times.
I think I’ve pretty much done the same thing as this little guy in a few classes at school. He pulls it off though. Don’t worry, I won’t tell anyone that you fell asleep. ;)
1) When I first thought about writing this, there was no question in my mind about which video I would crown as number 1 on my favorites list.
I love this video so much…you have no idea. Seriously. I’ve even imitated the bunny on the left irritating the bunny on the right with my special someone. Yeah. You can imagine how annoying that is. Another fact, which I am VERY proud of. :D
If you haven’t seen this video yet, click immediately. Because I have just changed your life.
You’re welcome. >.<
Oh come on! You didn’t think I’d just pick 10 videos did you????
This last video, is my ultimate favorite video of all time.
It’s so breath-takingly cute that I don’t have the will in me to give it a number. As much as I love kittens (as we’ve established more than once here) I happen to have a secret obsession about penguins. Uh oh! Omg…don’t tell anyone!!! Oh geez, I made it awkward again… <.< >.> <.<
Just watch the video. It’s the new craze that is taking over the world. And this guy is a celebrity in my world for sure.
Cookie for president!!!
