National Gorilla Suit Day is an annual fun celebration observed on January 31st of every year. Gorillas are the black furry textured giant-like mammals that we see in zoos and forests. Haven’t you assumed yourself to be a gorilla or wished to imitate the gorilla at any point in your life? Imagine how beautiful it will be to see you in the gorilla suit. So those who love resembling the gorilla have got an official celebration Day on the calendar. Dress up like the gorilla to make the celebration an utterly joyful one.

“I feel more comfortable with gorillas than people. I can anticipate what a gorilla’s going to do, and they’re purely motivated.” – Dian Fossey

History of National Gorilla Suit Day

The day has been celebrated since the year 1963. Don Martin, an artist of Mad Magazine, has come up with the idea of creating the Gorilla Suit Day for a comic strip. He has published the National Gorilla Suit Day a collection of the Don Martin Bounces Back. The story features people in gorilla suits, gorillas in people suits, and gorillas in gorilla suits. A character in the comic strip mocked the holiday and was then assaulted by the gorillas and people dressed up in gorilla suits.

Since then, the fans of Mad Magazine and Don Martin have been celebrating the Day on January 31st by dressing up in a gorilla suit. The gorilla suits are a type of creature suit that is designed in a way to resemble a gorilla. The suit is both a popular Halloween and costume party costume. It is also used as a source of humor, whereas the more realistic outfits have been created and are used both to represent the real gorillas in film and on stage.
