Kigurumi Canada (Montreal)
Kigurumi.ca was created and designed in 2011 by Maria Pham-Beaupré and Marc Beaupré-Pham.
It all began with those harsh Montreal winters.
Too lame to brave the cold and go out, we'd gotten into a routine of having rotating movie nights at friends' houses.
Being poor students, though, we'd often opt for piling on layers and blankets rather than spending money to heat our old and poorly insulated apartments.
We decided to invest in some onesies.
But not just any onesies - we had our eyes on these amazing Japanese "kigurumi" adult onesies we'd come across whilst scouring the internet.
Alas, these mythical onesies were impossible to get in Canada! We couldn't find them anywhere. We decided to collect orders from our friends and place an order directly from Japan. Me being just out of school, I decide to order some extras, and that my new side project would be to build a little online store to help out other Canadians who might be looking for these fantastic pyjama costumes.
