The frisky, playful bow-tied bunny logo is a cultural icon that is instantly recognizable. It evokes images of decadence and a pleasure-seeking lifestyle exemplified in Hugh Hefner's Playboy magazine. The success of the magazine led Hefner to open a chain of nightclubs, the Playboy Clubs. Early members received a distinctive key with the bunny logo on its grip (in 1966 they switched to a plastic key card), and possession of a Playboy Club key became a status symbol. And one of the chief attractions at the Playboy Clubs was the Bunnies, who greeted keyholders and their guests, served food and drinks, checked coats & hats, sold cigarettes and other Playboy merchandise, and generally created a fun and welcoming atmosphere.
Playboy Bunnies were in the vanguard of the sexual revolution. It goes without saying that they were beautiful, but a Bunny also had to be a cheerful "people person." Bunnies worked hard, but could be rewarded with better-than-average pay and generous tips if they were successful. A very few Bunnies went on to become Playboy models or even Playmates (centerfold models), and many went on to successful careers in diverse fields from modeling and acting to business, law, medicine and government. Most also became wives and mothers. (Did you know that Jon Bon Jovi's mother was once a Playboy Bunny?)
If you want to recapture that aura, get one of our bunny costumes. They're patterned after the original design worn by the actual Bunnies in the Playboy Clubs. The classic "Bunny Suit" was a strapless satin corset in any color, worn with Bunny ears of the same fabric and dyed-to-match satin pumps. All Bunnies wore a white collar with a black bow tie, white cuffs with Playboy cufflinks, a large, fluffy white bunny tail and black pantyhose. Complete your Bunny look with glamorous makeup and a great hairstyle. Your man will love it even more if you serve him a drink by doing the Bunny Dip!
