Why are Easter Bunny Costumes So Creepy Looking?

Posted on 5 March 2015 in Top Lists

Bunnies are pretty cute on their own, but who hasn't seen the nightmare results from creepy vintage Easter Bunny photo shoots with children? Here's the thing, though: Easter Bunny costumes you can buy today are still creepy, for the most part.

All of the costumes listed here are for sale right now, and the overwhelming majority of them are creepy rather than cute. If you're looking to recreate your own Easter photoshoot nightmare, you're in luck. If you're looking for a cute Easter Bunny costume that won't scar your children for life, you don't have a lot of options (hint: there are two). Here's a Creepy or Cute breakdown of the best-selling Easter Bunny costumes available to buy these days. Note: This year Easter will be celebrated in one month, on April 5th.

Creepy: Big-Face White Bunny Monster

The baggy plush bodysuit part of this costume is fluffy enough, but the oversized fat face makes this one more creepy than cute. This costume is a highly rated mascot-quality suit, so at least it's got that going for it.

Creepy: Slightly Angry Bunny with Vest

The eyes are just not right on this bunny costume. There appears to be an orbital ridge, which is the strong browline that gives birds of prey that badass angry-all-the-time look. It's not ideal for a fuzzy animal character that asks kids to sit on its lap.

Cute: Premium Easter Bunny Jumpsuit Costume

Now we're talking! What makes this full-body jumpsuit Easter Bunny costume cute? The open mouth smile is a good start. The big, well-spaced eyes are also pretty good. This one comes with the standard bunny feet and bunny paws, too.

Creepy: Too Realistic Easter Bunny Costume

This one is extra creepy because it's not even trying to be a cartoon character. This costume looks like a human-bunny hybrid, and that's not cute at all. Beady eyes, tiny mouth, nope nope nope!

Creepy: Dead Eyes Dapper Vest Bunny Costume

Oh heck NO, this one is super-creepy. Those big black eyes look dead inside. The open-mouth smile doesn't help this hopeless costume, which comes complete with a goofy clown-like vest and tie.

Cute: Adorable Cartoon Easter Bunny Costume

This is, paws down, the cutest Easter Bunny costume out there. The open-mouth smiling face, the perfectly proportioned cheeks, the big dark eyes with a twinkle in them -- this one does everything right.

Creepy: Simple Face Easter Bunny Costume

This costume loses points for the creepy simplicity of the full bunny head. The simple face has no charm, it looks more like a bunny corpse costume. The tiny eyes look like they'd make things difficult for the wearer, too.

Creepy: Bearded Bunny with Tiny Ears

If you're looking for a creepy smiling Easter Bunny costume at an affordable price, look no further. This full-body costume costs less than most competitors but still has the high creepiness factor. A good value as far as creepy Easter Bunny costumes go.
