The Snuggie Gets A High-Concept Makeover

When I began working from home, I easily fell into the freelancer traps that are at first appealing, then disgusting. See: working in bed, not wearing pants all day, etc. Near a breaking point, I instituted new rules in order to maintain a semi-normal lifestyle. Bra must go on by 10 a.m. You must wear “real” clothes. Of course, I’ve managed to find loopholes in my own rules. No stretchy pants allowed? Voilà the anti-pajama: sequin leggings. Underwear a must? Oh, no, this is one of those can’t-wear-a-bra-with-it tops, I swear. And now I’m secretly gleeful that an Icelandic design company has stepped in and taken the Snuggie high-concept, totally legitimizing my desire to make it my new freelancer’s uniform. Vík Prjónsdóttir (yeah, I have no idea how that’s pronounced) presents glorified blankets inspired by the days of yore and traditional folklore. With arm holes, and even built-in booties and gloves, these cover-ups are meant to be worn. There’s even a double-hooded one meant for sharing. Check out some more pics after the jump!

Brace Yourselves For The “Marshmallow Soft” Hoodie-Footie

You can learn a lot from this video. For example, even though I’m the Style Editor here at The Frisky, I was not aware that “footed PHs for women are all the rage” right now. Really!? Good to know, good to know. In combining slippers, a hoodie and a blanket, the new Hoodie-Footie Snuggle Suit rips a page right out of the ever-popular Snuggie handbook by insisting that blankets are hazardous, inconvenient and completely restrict your movement, which as we all know by now, is so sadly true. But this time, there are also economic reasons why you simply must slip into one, as they insist that these puppies will totally cut down your heating bills! With the Hoodie-Footie priced at a whopping $49.95, you’ll probably need all that extra cash anyway. [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

The Sleep Suit Is A Snuggie For Narcoleptics

I have to say, the first time I set eyes on the Sleep Suit, I knew I had to have it. A Snuggie-like suit that enabled me to fall asleep anywhere? Yes, please! Usually, if you go to sleep, you do it at home, at night, in your bed. Not so with the Sleep Suit! It’s made of stiff, pleated, shock-absorbent EVA foam, which means you can abruptly pass out just about anywhere — at your desk, on a hillside, in a stairwell — and, voilà, you are your own bed! It’s like a cocoon for the nap-happy. I want one stat, dammit. I’ve got some sleeping-in-public to do. [Blogitecture] Keep reading »

The Japanese Super Snuggie Will Turn You Into A Human Larva

The Japanese two-legged sleeping bag is amazing, not because it’s a revolutionary design, but because someone thought people would actually want it. There’s no way any infomercial spokesperson would touch this thing. [Impact Lab] Keep reading »

Blankets With Sleeves (And Legs!) Have Been Keeping The Masses Snuggly Since 1975

Copyranter just uncovered what could be considered the precursor to the Snuggie/Slanket craze — a onesie with feet called “The Bundler” was THE “sleeper” gift of the holiday season in 1975. The Bundler is far more body-conscious than its modern counterparts, thanks to the fetching rope belt. Step up your game, Snuggie! [Copyranter] Keep reading »

Snookie/Snuggie Joke Fail

We’re not sure what genius thought up this hilarious Snookie-of-”Jersey-Shore“-inspired blanket with “skeeves” pic that’s making the rounds today, but we’re not really laughing. One, making fun of the fact that she was physically assaulted (MTV is no longer airing the scene in this week’s episode) is just kind of nasty, and two, isn’t everyone just plain over Snuggie parodies at this point? It’s more than a little played out. Grade? FAIL. [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »
