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, at least 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 about a month, on April 9, 2023.

The eyes are just not right on this bunny costume. There appears to be an orbital ridge, which is the strong brow-line 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.
Now we're talking! What makes this full-body mascot-style jumpsuit Easter Bunny costume cute? The open mouth smile is a good start. The big and dark, well-spaced eyes are also pretty good. The grey color also stands out in a herd of white buns.
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 an iridescent vest and oversized bow tie. And does this bunny have pockets? In its LEGS? Nightmares.
If you're looking for a creepy smiling Easter Bunny costume at an affordable price, look no further. This full-body costume is still the budget king, costing less than most competitors -- but it still has the high creepiness factor. A good value as far as creepy Easter Bunny costumes go.
