Costume Information

purlgrl | Posted in Feedback on Threads on

Hello, I am making my halloween costome this year and I would like to make a Playboy bunny costume.  I am using the Boning Up On Bustiers article by Jacquie Keuler in issue #109 ,11/03, as a reference. 

If anyone has any helpful hits, or information on how the original bunny suits were constructed, ( closure details, trimmings…)I would really apreciate any and all info or leads any of you could give.

Thank you!

    I am remembering strapless, boning and zipper down the back.  There was a movie made about a journalist who was a playboy bunny for an article, I think it was Gloria Steinem, who talked about the construction of the costume in detail.

    Don't forget the cottontail!

      I believe that Kirstie Alley (pre-weight gain) was the actress in that movie, you can probably google on her and get the title.

        I think you are right.

      I am drafting the pattern from photos.  I have never sewn anything like this and am really looking forward to the challenge. 

      Issue #103 has a really good article on zippers as well.  The details are beginning to fall into place and next week, I will go into NY to buy the fabric and notions.
