So... in the C tier... there's the Christmas Tree kigurumi. Well, it technically exists out there, and due to our definition of plant-based kigurumi onesies, it still works. But thematically... yeah. Not really the most exciting, Plus it represents a holiday, that only happens to be held mostly during the snow seasons (at least in the upper hemisphere).
They can be mostly funny as hell, at least.
