The Whimsical Blues and Pinks of Kigurumi Onesies

Kigurumi onesies are known for their cozy and whimsical designs. While many kigurumi feature natural animal colors like brown, black, and white, there's also an equal variety of onesies in unique and imaginative colors. These vibrant and eye-catching designs typically make kigurumi onesies even more of an eye-catcher, especially when used in any jovial social gathering.

Take blue kigurumi onesies in general, for example. Many might treat color as "calm and serene" evoking peacefulness, but it's also often used as a cartoon-like representation of certain animals. Aquatic animals, for instance, as well as certain birds (which are indeed bluish in real life).

But perhaps our best example of the dream-like qualities of blue kigurumi onesies is the eternal blue penguin kigurumi onesies of Japanese pop culture, of which we already made a deep dive (pun intended) into previously.


Another popular choice for kigurumi onesies is pink. Technically, pink can actually be considered a natural color since a lighter shade of red can potentially turn pinkish in color. An axolotl, for example, is still color accurate, even if the kigurumi onesie representation is significantly exaggerated the hues and shades.

As such, when used on animals that are not typically pink in color, it becomes this weirdly bold and energetic theme. Some even deliberately choose the color since it is perfect for standing out at parties or events. I remember somebody even claiming that its cheerful tone is sure to "lift your spirits on even the gloomiest of days" so to speak.

But why stop at blue and pink? There are plenty of other imaginative colors that can add a touch of whimsy to your kigurumi collection. Imagine a kigurumi onesie in a dazzling shade of greens, maybe something resembling an bluish emerald or faded jade hue? Or perhaps a kigurumi onesie in a shimmering metallic silver, for those on the more artificially themed side of things.

These imaginative colors are not only fun and fashionable, but they also allow for creative interpretations of animal designs. For example, a sky blue kigurumi onesie could be styled to resemble a mythical creature like a dragon, while a bright pink kigurumi onesie could be inspired by an elusive unicorn.


In addition to their playful aesthetic, kigurumi onesies in imaginative colors also offer practical benefits. The bright colors can make you more visible in low-light conditions, which is especially useful for outdoor activities like camping or hiking. Additionally, some claim the bizarre hues can help boost your mood and increase your energy levels. But don't quote me on this though!
