> What is kigurumi?
Kigurumi (着ぐるみ) is a kind of costuming where the player wears a full body skin suit (called hadatai) along with an anime mask. The Japanese word "kigurumi" refers to any kind of full-body costume, but in this thread we're specifically looking for anime masks combined with skin-toned bodysuits - properly known as "animegao" kigurumi.
> Where can I find kigurumi pictures/videos?
http://www.animegao.com/ combines many kigurumi blogs and sites into a single feed. On pixiv, the 着ぐるみ and 着ぐる絵 tags contain many relevant images. Many Japanese kigurumi players now use Twitter. http://pastebin.com/nYuh4aat contains a random assortment of links.
Kigurumi players often stream videos on http://www.ustream.tv. You can find them by searching for "kigurumi" or "着ぐるみ". http://www.mediafire.com/?xtqkc2yn75u54 and http://yellingtoilet.com/search/?q=kigurumi have many kigurumi fetish videos. Don't beg.
> Where can I buy kigurumi masks?
A reasonable mask and bodysuit will cost roughly 1000-2000 USD depending on quality.
No. Kigurumi girls have to be cute and friendly, not just in appearance, but in heart as well!
That means there is no porn.

What ever happened to Nurse? She was one of the favorite female western kigs.
Well the hair portion is done. I can't wait for this to come together.
A first impression is very important in the kigu community.
The better you look, the more ppl would notice you.
So yeah, getting in shape (at least somewhat) would be strongly recommended.
Get a better waifu and we'll talk.
I know Japan is more lenient of it, but do any American theme parks allow people to attend in kig? What with recent events making people jumpy, if I tried to attend say Universal Studios Hollywood while wearing a kig would I just get turned away at the gate?
Speaking of Raigeki this Chiaki fig is hella nice
As that I know@,Kojiro_Y, @ Tamakyu0822, because of the nationality of the blockade.
But@makosigsig did not like them doing that (in my case)
So I blocked the front two(@,Kojiro_Y, @ Tamakyu0822, )
Maybe you should instead, because I've been blocked too by both. Strangely though, for a few months after I followed Kojiro he didn't block me until around last year.
Pity, I've always liked his Okuu.
I finally finished my custom papercraft, now I can work on making it into a real kig.
Are you going to make a mould with the paper craft base, or directly use it to make a mask?
I'm also in the middle of making a mask based off a paper craft model. I've covered it in filler to smoothen it out and I'm currently in the process of spraying layers of primer to find uneven spots. I've got the materials to make a mould, but I'm still far away from an actual mask.
Otherwise, good luck. Don't feel so bad if things get frustrating, it's rather difficult to make a good-looking mask.
I'm going to use it directly. I gave the modeler pretty precise measurements so I know it already fits my head, now I'm going to stiffen it up and use fiberglass and filler to make it solid and smooth. I expect it'll take a long time, so I'm shooting for the summer convention scene.
Look guys! This is my first kig! ^u^ Its not ready yet but I am sooo happy, isnt she cute??
are you sure about that?
As long as the kig stays on and looks good, it literally doesn't matter.
As long as their fetishes are like mine, I don't care.
How can you deny ショタパワー？
How can you deny what penis belongs only for men and hermaphrodites?
Stay shitty western kigurumi.
Also what in the fuck is with the giant mongoloid wearing latex at a public event? This is same shit that gave furries their shitty reputation.
Isn't the website right at the top of the page at the bottom of the OP?
At least on a forum the answer isn't going to get buried or lost in a week.
Also that KigUp link still there? That site has been dead forever.
from wyu !! girl or boy ??
Now that the trash is cleaned we can post cute again
welcome to the the kig thread
where the girls are old men
the serious posts are ironic
and the jokes are part of a long term plan to free humanity from the evil of people enjoying things the wrong way
It sounds like you haven't either.
Kigurumi is really hit or miss with people, they either love it or hate it. So walking around the con floor with a kig you'll definitely hear people commenting that it's creepy regardless or how well the kig is done.
It looks like a character from Davey and Goliath.
Not my post. There are plenty of people that have been to cons in Asian, Japan, and the US. From my experience, Japan kigs "walking in public delight and intrigue onlookers". For other parts of Asian, I don't know. (sorry for bad photo editing, it came from a jpeg, and I cropped it down a lot).
Does anybody know what the rim on Sigma masks is made of? It looks like some sort of tape folded over the fiberglass to prevent it from damaging a hadatai hood, but I'm not so sure if that's the case.
Huh. Never knew this stuff existed. Thanks for the info, it makes sense that Sigma uses transparent tape to protect the edges. I never handled it before, but does it adhere well to FRP after it's been painted?
>I can also sa6 that fetish people laugh at vanila porn
I think sex is terrifying.
If penetration happens in the porn I'm watching I have to stop.
I only had one chance to have sex and I was so scared I nearly ran away. I don't think I could have done it even if I tried.
I think the appeal of kigurumi for me is that it is a way to be sexy without being touched.
This is what the character is suppose to look like. She is very cute
The character's obviously a girl and it's highly likely that the wearer's a man. Could be a woman too. Does it really matter?
bad angle i guess. looks fine to me on other pictures.
also who are we to judge?
shit, i need to work on my outfit so i can do kigurumi reaction faces
Person thinks character is really cool.
Person wants to cosplay character.
Person looks absolutely nothing like character.
Person puts thing on head.
Person now looks like character.
That's not quite right.
You can be a cute girl or anything else you want as long as you don't care if anyone else believes you are what you want to be.
The kigu wants to be appreciated as a cute girl even though they are not one.
I don't have anyone to even pretend to enjoy my half-assed femininity in real life so I get imaginary people to appreciate my imaginary cuteness instead. It's a lot easier.
Person cannot take thing off.
Person meets acquaintances, finds that they are convinced that person is character.
Person wakes up with bloodstains on hands. They vanish the next day.
Thing starts whispering into person's head.
Person agrees to cooperate with thing and gain enough power to truly become character
Symbiosis is established.
A kigurumi cosplayer is born.
That Sonico would have at least looked decent if it had a neck.
>Using the ugliest one piece swimsuit in the world instead of using Sena's signature teal and yellow bikini.
Amanogawa Kirara aka Cure Twinkle
when you finish fapping to a kig they retroactively become whichever gender makes you feel worst.
So what if they are fat, ignore them and enjoy the better kigus.
Any Watamote kigus?
How about Oreimo ones?
Also, why are kigu masks so weird looking? Why don't designers make stuff more along the lines of giant Figma faceplates? They look more like the given character and less uncanny.
another reason why a certain US maker is so totally bad. poor miku she doesn't deserve that

Good job guys
Wasn't that Miku sculpt like the first one he made? Why are people still buying it after he's made better shit since then?
I think Cici's issue is that he's not being challenged. All his clients are just members of his community, who think that he's the last word in western kigu and what they're getting from him is as good as they're going to get. But he makes actual custom masks, from scratch. Clients can demand better quality from him if they were more discerning. So if he had customers that weren't just feeding his ego, and maybe teamed up with someone who can sculpt better than him, someone might actually start taking his work seriously.
yes the basic shape is from that and i do not know why the wig was so badly made and not like the first one. And i cannot answer why people are still buying this shit
Cici is a nasccist. All of his "community members aka cicibots are feeding his ego. And i doubt he would give up on sculpting and let somebody else do it. (And those are not full customs as the shell model is always the same)
>And those are not full customs as the shell model is always the same
Pointy Miku is one of his reusable models, and he's got a couple others, but there's also a lot he made from scratch, which explains why his quality fluctuates all over the place. But "cicibots" don't expect much of him. When he gets a customer who does, he'll probably wake up and get some help to produce better work and take advantage of what he has.
there is none of them from what i heard either "customers" cancel because of bad customer service (aka no or very low communitcation) or they are blinded because they do not know better
You'd think after stalking this thread for so long, he'd get the hint about the communication thing. Like a couple people spreading shit about him is one thing, but when you have so many people complaining about a common point, that might mean something.
Of course, if he wants to just produce for his social circle instead of actual clients who want a good-looking mask, that's fine too.
Why are kigu masks always so off-putting (mainly the mouth). I've seen plenty of figures and statues that successfully depict a character in 3d, so why don't people make masks that look more like figma faces or something?
If you guys think that you're fooling people into thinking that this isn't a staged conversation, you are dumber that the people that might actually believe this drivel.
Like Cici or hate him, we don't care, but give us the consideration of not insulting our intelligence.
maybe i'm taking a bait here..
doesn't look too bad. i don't see how this is kigurumi but whatever. and stop using those shitty filters and color inversions. this isnt fucking instagramm. also clean your fucking room
