O N E S I E S !
You know those fleece lined jumpsuits that one of your biases wore at least once? I am obsessed with them (read: obsessed with biases, obsessed with onesies and double obsessed with biases wearing onesies). There’s just something about this perfect 24/7 outfit that makes it ideal for those midday naps, K-Pop concerts, 3 am A&W trips and even a night out (yes, I am talking about tomorrow's Soju Sunday).
Here are 16 reasons why you should wear your onesie to Venue tomorrow!
1. BREAK THE MOLD
It's a Canada Day long weekend! Everyone is going to be sporting red and white everything. There is absolutely nothing wrong with turning yourself into a living, breathing, dancing, shots downing (insert your favorite activity here) version of a Canadian flag but if you want to be a non-conformist while making a bold statement, then start looking for that long-forgotten onesie. Plus, if you want to stay in the Canadian colour code, you still can just like MJ from Astro.
2. FUSS FREE
Since the onesie is a one-piece, you don’t have to stress over what matching separates to pair it with. You will be literally dressed in seconds. Super convenient, eh?
3. POCKETS POCKETS POCKETS
Where are my Soju gals at? Do you know that feeling when you discover that that cute dress you just got has pockets? That’s what it feels like every time you wear a onesie. That’s right, no more begging your friends/strangers to hold your phone and makeup because these babies can handle it all.
Break free from all the dresses and body suits that never did you a damn favor. Onesies are designed for independence and you are one independent woman (plus you can stuff your pockets with tons of snacks you can munch on while commuting to/from Venue)!
4. THE COMFIEST THING IN THE UNIVERSE
It’s no secret that K-Pop idols are huge fans of the onesie trend – and rightly so. The onesies are both adorbs and fluffy. Besides, who can forget how good it feels when the soft fabric caresses your skin? At night, these fashionably inept uni-suits are indubitably the ultimate security blanket.
You only live once and you want to tell your kids one day that their mama/daddy was a complete K-Pop obsessed bad ass that rocked a onesie at a night club.
6. INSTANT EYE-CATCHER
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again (and again and again), everyone loves a good onesie. Everyone will want to know who's that cool cat or swell fella beneath all that fabric. It’s a great way to make some new friends and maybe even meet that special someone…
7. ALL YOU CAN (EAT) HIDE
Canada Day long weekend is an excellent opportunity to celebrate Canada by stuffing your face from 10 am until whenever you go to sleep. No judgment there, I do it too (in fact I do it while I type this blog). The best thing about onesies – since they don't have a definite shape and offer tons of room, you can safely hide your food baby (or food baby twins)!
8. ONESIE SQUAD GOALS
Strength is in numbers so if you are worried to be the only one sporting your onesie attire, get your friends on board. Obviously no one would judge the majority. Incite your closeted onesie-lovin’ friends and embark on a mini onesie Soju Sunday expedition. It's going to be so much fun!
9. YOUR K-POP BIAS HAS ONE (OR 10)
K-Pop idols know how to look cool. They’re the trendsetters after all. If they think it’s cool, it’s cool. It just is, ok? This is your ultimate chance to be cool while being a step closer to your bias by wearing the same onesie.
10. RE-LIVE YOUR CHILDHOOD
Assuming your childhood wasn’t a horrific shitshow (I am very sorry if it was and in that case, let me give you a onesie hug once you make it to Soju Sunday), you probably get a great joy connecting with the age of innocence. Wearing a onesie is like running around in footie pajamas but it’s somehow become socially acceptable, while things, like drooling or crapping in a diaper, won’t be on the table for you for maybe 30-40 more years (fingers crossed).
11. ROCK THAT VENUE STAGE IN ONESIE STYLE
The onesie outfit is not complete if you don’t show what you’ve got on stage. We want to see you up there doing your best K-Pop cover dance choreos. If you are shy and never attempted to step on Venue's stage, now is your chance! You are not you, you are that (onesie) crocodile, teddy bear, Gudetama or whatever onesie you happen to be tomorrow and that onesie lives his/her/their best life on Venue's stage not giving a 💩 what everyone else thinks. Plus if your onesie comes with a hood, just put it on for extra anonymity.
12. A CHANCE TO MEET YOUR (ONESIE) LOVE
Soju Sunday made love happen multiple times (we are looking at you Emily B. from the UK) and maybe tomorrow is your turn! And now tell us what sounds better – we actually met at a club OR we met at this cool club night called Soju Sunday and now wait for it wait for it wait for it – both of us were wearing onesies! #twinning How awesome is that?
13. THEY MAKE YOUR SELFIES 100% MORE INTERESTING
They just do and that's a scientific fact!!! NASA agrees. Also, while you're snapping those Soju onefies (onesie + selfie), don't forget to use #SojuSavGiveaway to enter our dope giveaway in partnership with Subtle Asian Events.
14. I WILL BE WEARING ONE
I may not be the biggest party animal out there but each time I wore my onesie to a party, I became 35% more popular (don't ask me how I got that percentage). This made me come to a conclusion that I've found a simple solution that will make you the instant hit of each party. Let me do a quick math here: little effort + onesie = instant party winner
And if I can pull it off, you can absolutely pull it off. No doubt about that.
15. YOU CAN BE TOTALLY NAKED UNDERNEATH
Nothing says “maybe I am, maybe I’m not” like a onesie. There’s just something fun about walking around downtown with nothing between you and a public indecency charge but one little zipper. Live on the edge!
16. EASY REMOVAL
After a night out, who the hell wants to deal with all that clothing? As you stumble home you’ll know that you’ll be out of your entire costume with one satisfying zip. Or you can just head to bed in your onesie because putting on a pajama top and bottom is frankly too much work. Ain't nobody got time for that.
So start looking for those onesies that'll warm your bunsies and come live that lazy (read best) life with us Soju fam.
