My daughter reminded me of the Energizer Bunny because she just keeps going and going. So it was only fitting that I make her a Homemade Energizer Bunny Halloween Costume. Everyone thought it was a great costume, and my daughter loved wearing it. My mother made the bunny costume and did an excellent job, because she does not sew much.

First make the bunny costume, or I guess you could buy one, but they just don't look as good, unless you spend a lot of money. I made the drum by folding and rounding a cardboard box and using a glue gun, lots of glue! I painted it white and drew the logo on the sides of the drum. The drumsticks are wooden dowels with painted red foam on the tips of them.
I found some pink furry slippers and cut up some blue and black foam to make it look like flip flops. I also glued blue ribbon to each side of the drum to hold it on her. Don't forget the sunglasses! Of course I only put the glasses on for the Costume Contests.
This Energizer Bunny Halloween costume really was easy and most of the stuff I had or got from the dollar store. A friend found the bunny costume at a yard sale for $.50. I dyed it pink. The batteries on the butt were little sports bottles I wrapped in aluminum foil and copied and blew up the energizer logo and glued them on.
The drum: I found these tortilla holders at the dollar store and hot glued the bottoms together, spray painted it white, copied and blew up the logo again and glued it on. I had some ribbon and just poked it through. The drumsticks (again items from the dollar store) were wooden spoons I cut the tops off of, stuck a Styrofoam ball on, and used a knife and shaped it into a square, and then covered it with a red balloon (I had to blow the balloon up and let the air out so that it would fit on the Styrofoam).
That is it, my son is 23 months old and he wore it all the way around our neighborhood (except for the sunglasses) and got lots of compliments.

I put on my pink pants & sweet shades, borrowed a drum from a good friend, printed out & taped on the 'Energizer' logo, strapped the drum on with a small backpack & some zip ties, wrapped some socks & cloth around the ends of a couple drumsticks to create my mallets and topped it off with a pair of pink-lined bunny ears.
I should have spent a little more time on the mallets; they didn't hang in there for whole evening so I ended up with naked sticks which made a less satisfying but still effective sound. I banged my drum up & down the street, had a flock of followers at one point. This Energizer Bunny Costume was a fun costume!
