Everyone knows what a Playboy bunny looks like - the costume is as famous as the name. Since the first Playboy Bunnies made their appearance back in the 60's, this costume has been a popular choice for women seeking a sexy Halloween costume. The most beautiful women around have been Playboy Bunnies, and the costume that took the world by storm was brought to us by the man who gave us Playboy magazine, Hugh Hefner.
In 1953, Hefner published the first issue of his magazine, Playboy. On the cover was Hollywood superstar and classic blonde bombshell Marilyn Monroe. With a combination of interesting and readable articles, humor, and of course photographs of beautiful women in the nude, Playboy magazine was aimed at the male audience. It quickly became a success, and Hugh Hefner gained power and prestige in the arena of erotic entertainment.
The first of Hugh Hefner's Playboy clubs opened in Chicago, IL in 1960. Waitresses who worked in the club were given a uniform to wear designed based on the Playboy logo - a bunny in formal wear. Dressed up as sexy bunnies in their revealing uniforms, the female staff of the Playboy clubs came to be known as Playboy Bunnies. With the expansion of the Playboy Clubs on a national and then international level, the Playboy Bunny was soon a recognizable symbol of Hefner's empire. Of the many women who worked as Playboy Bunnies, some went on to be featured in the magazine as well.
A satin merry widow is the basis of the Playboy Bunny costume. With a bunny tail, tuxedo wrist cuffs and a bow tie collar and of course the bunny ears, the costume is complete. The tuxedo look is made more feminine with black stockings and high heels, taking some of the look of the Playboy mascot and making it a lot sexier.
Today, there is only one Playboy Club open, in Las Vegas, where Bunnies can still be seen serving drinks. Fortunately, the costume has become so popular over the years that you can be a Playboy bunny yourself with a sexy Bunny costume. Whether for Halloween or just for fun, the Playboy Bunny costume is the perfect choice for a sexy, flirty and fun costume that will always grab attention.
It is unlikely that the Playboy Bunny costume will ever go out of style for women at Halloween. It comes in multiple color options, although the most popular are usually black or pink. No matter what color combination you choose to wear, this is a costume that will always make you feel sexy and attractive when you head out for your Halloween celebration.
