Rasta Imposta have got you covered when it comes to fancy dress costumes, and this giraffe outfit is certainly no exception. It offers a deluxe animal costume made from high quality materials that will make you stand out from the herd. The range of materials used gives different colours and textures to the body and hooves and tail which really adds the overall effect.

Details on the headpiece such as the nostrils and mane make this costume one of the most lifelike available. Also what’s great about this particular outfit is that the pants, shirt, headpiece and gloves are all separate, which makes going going to the bathroom a whole lot easier compared to other onesie-style costumes!

3. Belle House Adult Giraffe Onesie

The first onesie on our list is this cutesie design by Belle House. What makes this giraffe onesie stand out for us is that it’s stayed true to the classic Japanese Kigurumi style. This can be seen in the big cartoon style eyes and the over-sized and baggy body.

A key feature is also the large buttons that do up along the front of the costume which might take a little more time to do up and undo than a zipper but definitely add to the overall effect. It comes in three different sizes so you’ll be able to find the perfect fit for you, whether your a petite lady or muscular guy.

The majority of the onesie is made from polar fleece which is super soft and crazy comfy, making this costume just as good for lounging at home as it is for going out in fancy dress. The cuffs are made from soft flannel which will make you feel as snug as a bug in a rug.

4. Funsies Georgie Giraffe Unisex Costume

This one-size-fits-all giraffe onesie is the go-to costume if you’re looking for comfort and design. It’s got an overall more life-like appearance than other onesie-style costumes and so it straddles the line between costume and lounge-outfit pretty well.

There’s a lot more detailing in the colors of the giraffe pattern and less of a cartoony look than the kigurumi costumes, particularly in the eyes and ears. The front of the onesie has poppers instead of button or a zip, which make for easy opening and doing back up.

This costume is also fully machine washable so if you happen to get totally giraffed at the party then you can just throw it in the washing machine and forget about it. That also means that it’s easy to wear again and again, so this costume’s good for birthday parties, Halloween, festivals, you name it!

Hilariously realistic shape and coloring are complemented by actual faux-fur eyelashes, adding a creepily realistic look to this giraffe. What brings this mask down is the cross attached sprayed on ‘detailing’ which just looks a bit out of place and detracts from the epicness of the mask. Even with this, we still love this mask.
