Unicorn pajamas and other gadgets dedicated to this fantastic animal seem to have conquered the market and our imagination, but have you ever wondered why this ubiquitous fashion in recent months?
Obviously they do not exist only pajamas dedicated to unicorns, but the so-called kigurumi are now on everyone’s lips and it is not difficult to find the pajamas that represent one’s favorite animal, of imagination or not.
What are the Kigurumi
Whole pajamas they were classically used in the cold nations of central Europe exclusively by children. In recent years, however, above all thanks to the fashion of cosplay imported directly from Japan and to the massive influence of youtubers on the collective imagination, we have seen more and more adults wear headdresses or whole overalls and animal-shaped pajamas. In some cases even adding the tail, without any shame.
The Japanese call this type of costume « kigurumi« Which derives from the fusion of the verb » kiru « which means to wear and of » nuigurumi « or » rag doll « .
The kigurumi can be purchased in many different sizes, they are designed to be easily adaptable to both sexes and can be easily used or as suits to use at home when you feel in the mood for humor and tenderness or directly as pajamas, being these extremely comfortable to sleep. They are also perfect for keeping warm, so a great choice for those who live in places with particularly cold winters.
The kigurumi are equipped with a hood with the appearance of the animal or the character they want to portray, a comfortable back zip even when there is need to go to the toilet and sometimes there is the suit that also includes comfortable slippers in line with the design of the dress.
They portray animals or characters from video games and cartoons, especially Japanese, but lately due to the strong demand of the market, pajamas and overalls are also spreading that represent the darlings of the Western world.
Why the fashion of unicorns?
It has spread like an oil stain the passion for unicorns, as suddenly, without an apparent reason. But on closer inspection it is possible to trace the reasons for the return of this fashion, which has much to do with the nostalgic contemporary trend that leads to revive myths of the past.
Yes, in the case of unicorns there is to go back in time to the ancient Greeks, so it becomes immediately easy to understand the instinctive passion of humans for this animal.
Simultaneously with the unicorns the passion for multicolored things is also back in fashion, for example we think of the girls who like these days to paint their hair with the strangest colors, in many cases not limiting themselves to one color, but choosing different ones to get effects very surreal, almost cartoonschi.
In the Anglo-Saxon culture the word unicorn is also used to define something rare, for example a girl with particular qualities, or a company that has succeeded in establishing itself in record time on the market, almost magically.
Unicorns are so relevant because they have the ability to please practically everyone, not just children. They were soon adopted by the LGBT queer community precisely because of their association with the rainbow of the movement’s flag but also because of the characteristics of strangeness and rarity that this fantastic animal implicitly carries with it.
The ancient Greeks already talked about unicorns, they believed that these were actually existing animals and it was not uncommon to find testimonies of people who swore they actually met them.
Let us not forget that in ancient times it was very easy to attribute an aura of magic and myth to completely natural phenomena which, however, had not yet been explained in the past.
Also in the Middle East we also encounter graphic representations of unicorns, to testify how deep these have always belonged to our collective unconscious … who knows what Dr. Jung would think about the return of this fashion.
In the Middle Ages this fabulous animal began to be associated with the sufferings experienced by Christ and the legend widely spread that the unicorn can only be tamed by a virgin woman.
With time he lost sexual connotations and began to be associated with the rainbow, and therefore with the world of children.
In the last few decades then cartoons began to be created that saw these bizarre flying horned horses as protagonists, the craze of the My Little Pony broke out, recently returned to great.
In America these have also been rediscovered by a community of adult males who have begun to create a true cult around them, complete with gatherings and internet forums.
As inevitably happens when a new craze is discovered, merchandising is immediately created around it, and so it was also with unicorns that began to be immediately the subject of t-shirts and graphics on the internet.
Of particular importance is the use of unicorns and their rainbow aesthetics linked to food, in fact over the last few months the American passion for creating colorful foods to be photographed on instagram is spreading. Also particularly fashionable is the unicorn color slime or youtube tutorials on how to make a unicorn style make-up.
Obviously there was a sort of « astral conjunction » that favored the rise of this fashion, and it is to be found in the fact that never before has the nostalgia for the 80s been very strong, plus a great many stars and influencers hasten to copying each other’s findings and styles, the world of unicorns so colorful and evocative obviously found a very fertile territory on the internet and in social media, so this craze erupted.
There are also many shops entirely dedicated to the rainbow world of unicorns.
Even the fashion of cosplay has been heavily influenced, so what’s better than following the trend and dressing a nice unicorn costume at the next Comicon to surprise all your friends?

Only from the 90s onwards, however, it became a mass phenomenon that began to influence more and more people and take hold until the global proportions in which it can be admired today.
In Tokyo there are the most aggressive and « professional » cosplay communities, but also in the rest of the world there are more and more fans of fictional characters who do not spare themselves and decide to resemble their idols as much as possible.
