Single-piece garment features openable flaps for your twintails and poo.
The Japanese Internet is fond of describing clothing and furniture that’s incredibly comfortable as hito wo dame ni suru, literally “it will ruin people.” The implication is that once you have one of these items, you’ll never leave your cozy little bubble again, slowly transforming into a lazy hermit as you gradually withdraw from society.
The label is obviously meant to be tongue-in-cheek, but Japanese apparel and interior company Bibi Lab’s Dame Gi full-body pajama suit, released last year, was a case where the label seemed pretty accurate. In the wake of its apparent success, Bibi Lab has since updated its product line with a new version that’s designed with the female otaku in mind: the Dame Gi-chan.
Like the ordinary Dame Gi, the new Dame Gi-chan features a hooded, front-zippered design. With no constrictions wrapping around the waist, the garment can easily accommodate any angle of relaxed sprawling or amount of junk food-binging.
While it can be lowered, in its promotional images Bibi Lab strongly recommends raising the face-obscuring hood. The manufacturer lists a number of purported benefits, including keeping your cheeks warm and functioning as an eye mask to help you sleep more deeply, so doubt with the morning light streaming through your windows after marathoning a season of your favorite anime, finally maxing out your video game character’s level, or reading each and every article on JWS.
▼ Positioning the face hole just right will allow you to barely peek out of it.
But just because you’re hiding your face doesn’t mean you can’t show off your stylish twintails, thanks to the flaps on either side of the hood.
▼ If you’re a one-tail kind of girl, there’s also a ponytail opening in the back.
▼ The Dame Gi-chan also works great with the Sandwiched Between Twintails Pillow, another product from the brilliantly warped minds at Bibi Lab.
Another feminine touch is the soft inner lining for the chest area, providing added comfort for braless Dame Gi-chan occupants.
And in carrying on the tradition started by the regular Dame Gi, the backside unzips, allowing you to quickly expose your derriere and situate yourself on the toilet when nature calls.
Bibi Lab thinks the Dame Gi-chan is just the outfit to wear when snapping your newest selfie…
…or when inviting your girlfriends over for a Dame Gi-chan party.
If this looks like just the sort of multi-faceted garment you need, the Dame Gi-chan can be ordered through us for 7,045 yen (US$59).
