The character of Gudetama is a Sanrio character known for being a lazy egg. As Gudetama’s caricature goes, Gudetama is the yellow yolk, and he likes to lie down on his egg white blanket when he’s not at work. A lot of the young generation is fascinated by this lethargic egg because he seems to have a disenchantment with working, which is something that many people can identify with.
The costume for Gandetama is an easy one to make. Depending on your taste, you can either wear a Gudetama-inspired outfit consisting of merchandise or make yourself look like a lazy egg by wearing a yellow onesie and a DIY cracked egg around your waist.

White Full-Zip Hoodie
To make it appear like Gudetama is lying on egg whites, you should wear a white zip hoodie. It has been machine washed. 4.5 ounces of lightweight slub fabric create a textured look: full-zip front and wide cuffs with a ribbed waistband.
This classic pullover features hand pockets and an adjustable hood for a classic look—all the comfort of Hanes with our famous tag-free back neck.
White Ballet Skirt
Your hoodie will look great paired with a white ballet skirt.
You can add a bubble hem on your various dresses to make them look fluffy and cute, with three layers of soft tulle to hold the dress’ shape and two layers of lining to prevent scratching lovely, sensitive skin, and an elastic waistband to adjust the dress’ size.
This is a great decoration for dance, ballet, costumes, dress-up, jazz and tap, and party favors. The skirt can also be worn under ROCK n ROLL, vintage dresses, and other outfits, or it can be worn alone as a skirt.
Don’t forget to wear a Gudetama-inspired hat to keep to the theme.
Featuring a cotton cap with a square logo patch at the front and a Coolmax sweatband with moisture-wicking properties. A hook-and-loop back closure provides a comfortable fit.

Gudetama’s main purpose
As mentioned earlier, Gudetama is composed of two Japanese words: Gudegude, which means lack of energy, and Tamago, which means a lazy egg.
There is no doubt in my mind that Hello Kitty came about in Japan in 1974 when a company called Sanrio, based in Tokyo, hired designer Yuko Shimizu to create a cartoon character that would appeal to the preteen girl within all of us. In the meantime, Sanrio had been trying to come up with a new critter to decorate a plastic coin purse it was planning to produce since it already had a bear and a dog (and, curiously enough, a strawberry) in its growing cast.
In her book Hello Kitty Hello Everything, the designer Shimizu “wants to create a cat that’s kittenish for sure,” author Marie Y. Moss writes. The designer wanted the cat to prefer a catnap over a catnip. So he drew a white cat wearing an orange bow and blue overalls. Sanrio introduced Hello Kitty for the first time on November 1, 1974. Her head was turned sideways as she sat between a milk bottle and a goldfish.
