Rabbid - Rayman: Raving Rabbids


AmeCon 2007




Worn to AmeCon 2007!

One of those costumes I still can't believe I thought was a good idea, and can't believe I actually did. Awesome though.

Most of this was done by myself! Shocking. I remember sewing a lot of the bodysuit, and shaping the head, so I guess this was one of the first costumes I did myself? I had assistance all the way through, but gotta learn somehow!

The head was made from a lampshade and papier-mached, with wireframe ears installed before a fleece cover was added on top. It was a hot, uncomfortable costume, but the reaction it had was awesome!

Things I learnt from this costume were:
Rabbids are very hard to dance as. They must have special training.
Rabbids REALLY can't do anything. This includes cooling down in general, holding drinks, opening doors, walking in a straight line, and getting undressed.
Rabbids must not be cosplayed again unless the installing of tiny fans all over the head and body commences.
