Red Playboy Bunny
Playboy/ The Playboy Club
Last Updated: 09-16-2012
The playboy bunny outfit; Who doesn't know that famous outfit. I wanted to make mine as close to the actual outfits in the club all those years ago.
I made my own pattern by cutting up a corset, and using a bathing suit bottom. It took quite some time, but I got the perfect pattern. Next I cut out the fabric in the three layers, a cotton lining, the red satin that is seen, then a heavy duty duck cloth, which is the middle layer. I put cups in the top for extra size and support, and 4 strips of boning in the front. The costume is absolutely skin tight, which is how it should be.
The ears are just a head band, wire I cut out and shaped, then fabric I covered over it.
The tail is simply fuzzy fabric I stuffed, then pinned to the suit.
The shoes I happened to have.
The Bowtie and collar I made myself, following the actual pattern of the actual outfit.
The cuffs were also made by the pattern from the actual outfit.
The cufflinks were made for me. If you are interested let me know. I can get you in contact with the person who made them. Same with the tray.
Tights were just tights I bought at walmart.
What I need to improve:
On the suit I still need to add the corset sides on the legs. I just ran out of time.
I want to completely redo the collar, bowtie, and cuffs.
The shoes are incorrect. They shouldn't have a strap. I plan on getting a correct pair, just didn't have
the time orginally.
And lastly, I want to get a pair of dance tights, so that damn line won't be there.
