As noted on IT Media, the Pokémon Girls line features iconic characters like Eevee and Pikachu embroidered into the garments and sleepwear. It’s all rather tasteful.

DISCUSSION

Here’s my question, and I think I already know the answer, but are people so into their fandoms, that they want/need to bring it into the bedroom? I mean I love Metroid, but I’m not sure I would want to put on a Samus suit. Or barring something that ridiculous, a thong with Ridley on it.

Alternatively, is this a fandom thing or a sexual thing. Are people just fanatics for, in this example, Pokemon, or are they sexually connected to it? This isn’t judgment, I legitimately don’t understand the appeal, if not that.
