I have this thing with Rabbits. I think they make excellent Halloween villains. I know most people think cute and fuzzy and Easter but I feel like underneath that, there’s way too much nightmare potential. Even the makers of the movie Secret Life of Pets would agree. See Snowball as an example. Cute, little, insane bunny.
I’ve done the Scary Rabbit decoration thing before when our kids went as Alice in Wonderland and the Queen of Hearts.
But since our younger daughter is going as Officer Judy Hopps from Zootopia this year, I thought hey, let’s make a Jack O’ Lantern that matches the costume.
Except a little more psychotic.
Enter the Evil Halloween bunny mask. I saw this and was like this needs to be carved onto a pumpkin. I would totally wear this going out with the kids trick or treating.
And that led to this. All I can hear is Gideon Grey from Zootopia saying “Cry baby bunny, cry!”
I did a couple of sketches to see what face I liked and carved it first. Afterwards I used a can of black spray paint all over. Then I used stiff felt for the ears. In order to hold them up I glued ribbon to the back of them and then pinned them into the pumpkin to stay put.
This is why Easter and I don’t get along. Happy Halloween!!
