This week the big news is either Sport or Politics. After all it was Super Bowl Sunday and the primaries are in full swing. Can we possibly find any links between Politics or Superbowl with Onesies? We’ll go with a sports theme for now until we manage to get a picture of The Donald in an adult onesie.
Some baseball players were able to make it to Levi’s Stadium for Super Bowl 50 on Sunday, but those who weren’t there in person still had fun. Jose Bautista, Marcus Stroman and other members of the Toronto Blue Jays gathered together to watch the game on television for a Superbowl with Onesies Pajama Party. Meanwhile some parts of the country are still experiencing severe winter weather and we noticed that onesies are getting popular amongst winter sports fans. A trend of seeking out and skiing in goofy vintage clothing — including gaudy one-piece ski suits from the ’80s — has hit ski areas across the West. For example GetOutfitted will rent you a retro suit for $25 a day. The company has purchased “eccentric onesies” from thrift shops in Aspen, Vail, and Park City. “When we realized the collection had grown to a whopping 22+ onesies, we brought up the idea of adding them to the rental platform,” noted the brand. The onesies were in mint condition, exceptionally warm, and irresistibly fun to wear “so why not prolong their landfill-doom by offering them a few last runs?…The glory of the onesie, in terms of its warmth and convenience, was something I knew that the world needed,” vice president of sales and marketing Mike Mueller. There was also a Retro onesie theme to Aspen Gay Ski Week, where they seem to be worn more as thermal underwear. On the subject of Retro Onesies, you may have noticed that Zoolander is back at the Movies. For a couple of years already we have wanted to produce a penguin print adult onesie on pale blue background just like the one featured in the original Zoolander. Perhaps we’ll try and crowdfund the development to see if there is any interest for it.
From Superbowl with onesies this week, we’ll have to take a look at Valentines Onesies next week.
