PHOTO RECAP: Pillow Fight Day

We'd like to thank everyone who came out for Pillow Fight Day 2013: Montreal - we had an amazing time and we hope you did too!

The weather Gods were with us (well, kind of) and the sun was shining in the only relatively frigid Montreal weather. Of course once pillows started flying, one only needed a t-shirt (or a Kigurumi!) to stay warm amidst all of the feathery mayhem.

A special thanks to: Wally from HighOnBeats.com for providing the music which added to the excellent vibes of the occasion; the overwhelming media presence filming and interviewing people at the event (although, clearly you should have put your cameras down and joined in, just saying); as well as Motel Raphaël for being awesome and including the pillow fight in their music video.

Kigurumi.ca is the official Canadian distributor of authentic SAZAC kigurumi. SAZAC is Japan's number one kigurumi manufacturer, and the quality of SAZAC onesies is unmatched around the world. Unfortunately, this means that many other manufacturers will try (and fail!) to mimic SAZAC products. It doesn't take much to notice a major difference in quality between authentic kigurumi and imitators' attempts.

Fake. vs. Real: Stitch Kigurumi

For starters, imitation kigurumi are generally made of much thinner fabric--sometimes crushed velvet, which deteriorates much more quickly than fleece, cotton, and poly--and are poorly stitched together. Fakes tend to have wonky-looking faces: crossed eyes, asymmetrical features, and visible stitch defects. Colours won't be nearly as vivid, lining is often missing altogether, and features such as sleeves, tails, ears, wings, etc., will be overall much more floppy and downright sad-looking.
