Endless Bliss | Happy Lifestyle Blog: DIY energizer bunny costume.

DIY energizer bunny costume.



So last week, we had a fall carnival at my job. It was so fun, and I'm so lucky to have been part of the planning process. I, of course, had to come to the carnival with my A-game, so I decided to do a little DIY costume. I was an Energizer Bunny, and I felt like one too. I was just so happy that everything came together so well that I was hopping running all over the place and just taking it all in. Twas a lot of fun.



It was so easy to put my costume together!

Ears, bow tie, and tail
I bought the ears, bowtie, and bunny tail (that you can't see in this pic) in a set. It was at Wal-Mart in the costume section for just $4.97. The bowtie is obviously not part of the original Energizer bunny costume, but I thought it was too cute to not wear.

Shirt and pants
I just wore a pink shirt that I already had. I purchased it several years ago from a Ralph Lauren outlet store for either $10 or $15. I don't remember exactly. I bought the pants from Wal-Mart in the children's section for $5.99. I had to get an XL because they were out of large and the medium was too tight. I ended up rolling it up a couple times. They were so comfy and they'll be excellent to lounge around in.

Shoes
I actually have to pairs of pink shoes and chose these ones because they're much more comfortable. I bought them this past summer at an outlet store in Gulf Shores. The Energizer bunny actually wears blue sandals, but I had to wear closed-toe shoes for work, so opted for these.

Tutu
I made the tutu from tulle purchased at Wal-Mart for just $0.97/yard. I used 3 yards of tulle. I also bought some stretchy elastic from Wal-Mart for $2.97. I didn't use that much of it, so there will be a lot for future tutus! They also had the option of buying it by the yard, but I opted out of this option.

Drum
I was pretty stressed about figuring out what to do for the drum. I ended up buying two foam boards and a poster board from Dollar Tree. I used an X-Acto knife to cut out the circle and then used a hot glue gun to glue the poster board to the two pieces of foam board. I painted the red lines with red paint and foam brush. I super glued blue ribbon on the outside to make it into a front backpack to wear.

I also spray painted my hair pink. This is definitely another one of my favorite DIY costumes that I've done thus far.

Oh and look who surprised me with a visit:



Yup. My cute boyfriend. What are y'all dressing up as for Halloween this year?
