Great Energizer Bunny Costume: DIY with Duct Tape!
Everyone LOVED this Energizer Bunny Costume! It is one of my all time favorites and both easy and cheap to make. The battery pack and drum MADE this costume.
I already had bunny accessories from a previous costume (tail, ears), you can use any set or make your own. I decked myself out in pink yoga gear: tights, shorts and tank- you could wear anything pink as a base. I found cheap blue flip flops at Old Navy and then used a pair of black sunglasses I already owned. Money spent so far = $4.
For the drum I used a medium sized hat box spray painted white. I bought blue, red, silver and black duct tape at a craft store. I found the energizer logo on line and printed a color copy. First I made straps for my drum with the duct tape by creating one long piece folded in half and then wrapped more tape horizontally around (you can find you-tube videos of people making purses out of duct tape, I used a similar strategy). I trimmed the hat box with the blue tape as well and affixed the straps with more blue duct tape.
Then I detailed the side of the drum with small crosses of red duct tape. Finally I glued the logo on both sides. For the drum sticks I used craft foam and affixed them to craft sticks then wrapped the foam with red duct tape. For the battery I used a paper towel roll cut open on one side (to make it larger) stuffed with magazine paper (to hold a cylinder shape). You could also use an oatmeal tube I just didn’t have one. Then I used the silver black and red tape to make the battery. For the logo I used scrap booking letters. Money spent: $30
