I got the idea of this Energizer Bunny Toddler Costume from my 2 year old son because he keeps going, and going, and going. I started with a generic fabric store bunny pattern with the zipper up the front using pink and white fuzzy material. I followed the package instructions with the exception of making two button holes in the back about 2/3rds up.
The battery is made from an oatmeal container covered in aluminum foil putting a little extra at the top to make the "+" nob. The label was made by hand with construction paper copying the design from an actual battery and glued on. I cut two vertical slits into the battery on the back end where the black construction paper meets the tin foil and threaded a pink ribbon through it approximately 4ft long leaving equal lengths hanging out of both slits. Those ends were placed through the button holes in the bunny costume and tied around my son's chest inside the costume, not visible after it was zipped up.
The drum is made out of a Baskin and Robbins ice cream tub that I cut in half and placed a lid on both sides. It is also covered with construction paper and the "Energizer" label is hand made out of construction paper and glued on. There is a string going through the drum that ties around his neck. The tail is made out of cotton balls strung together and sewn on the butt.
The drum sticks are chop sticks with a red pompom stuck through it and the sunglasses are from Kmart. Nose and whiskers are black eye liner makeup.
I actually made/wore this Energizer Bunny Costume several years ago to work - won first prize! I already had the pink warm up suit which happened to have a hoody on it (a pink sweatsuit would work well too!) Bought the ears and bunny tail, which I safety pinned on to my back end (sorry, no photo of) from a costume store ($7-$10?).
The entire drum set up (drum & sticks) were purchased from a crafts store except for the strap around my neck - this was a camera strap my husband happened to have lying around the house. The drum is a hat box (so it's hollow inside & lightweight) wrapped around both edges with blue painters tape we had at home. The zig-zag lines were painted on with fabric paint and the logo taken off the internet -printed on 1 sheet of standard-sized paper, enlarged and glued on. The sticks is one dowel rod sawed in half with Styrofoam balls painted red and stuck on to the ends. I had some pink socks on and, of course, flip-flops for my shoes. Threw on a pair of sunglasses and was good to go!
BTW, was VERY comfortable at work for the day! Total cost about $30 (which is what I won back I think).
This homemade Energizer bunny costume is original, built-in storage, and of course... flattering!
Result: Bunny + Energizer!
I made the energizer bunny drum from a drum-style basket I found at Michael's - there were a million drum style / shape items at Michael's since it's the holiday season, but you could grab a regular basket and add drum details on the sides if you needed.
I used white foam sheets to cover the basket bottom, and for the top I attached a zipper so that I could zip/unzip the drum and put my purse items inside! I was determined not to lose camera/wallet/keys this year!
The straps are made from thick velvety ribbon, doubled, and I attached everything together with a staple gun for extra durability (if you don't need the storage element, you could probably get away with glue) - Guys, you could throw a few beverages in here for portable refreshment.
I enlarged and printed out a picture of the energizer battery I found on Google and pasted that on top of the white foam sheets! Voila!
The rest of the homemade Energizer bunny costume is a white bustier, skirt, bunny ears, pink wig, and fuzzy boot covers - no I didn't make those :)

I came across this red drum from a child's drum set and I knew exactly how to use it as a great Halloween Energizer Bunny Costume. So I printed the Energizer logo on a sticker sheet and attached it to the side of the drum. Then I purchased some pink fur fabric and white fur strips at the craft store and sewed my dress. I finished it off with homemade drumsticks, pink ears, and the classic black sunglasses. My friend's homemade Taco costume is pretty awesome as well.
