Tiny Toon Adventures
I loved watching Tiny Toon Adventures
as a kid, and Babs was my favorite character. She was smart, sassy, and easily went toe to toe with her counterpart, and eventual boyfriend, Buster. When EllyStar asked if I wanted to participate in a casual Tiny Toons
group for Dragon*Con, my husband and I thought it would be a blast to cosplay Babs and Buster Bunny. No relation.
I used purple cotton and a half circle skirt pattern for Babs' skirt, which is lined and zips up the side. The yellow blouse is store-bought, as are the pink tights. My husband Sketch made both of our ears out of felt, fake fur, and wire. The ears are attached to a headband and also tie behind my head under the wig to try and prevent them from slipping forward. I made bows for the ears out of leftover skirt fabric and interfacing, and a tail out of quilting batting. A pink wig and prop carrot finished off the look. Although this should have been a simple and fun drinking costume, it actually ended up being super uncomfortable - my head hurt from the ears, the wig was static-y, the shirt kept riding up, the tights were too hot and the shoes killed my feet. I need to do some major tweaking to this costume before I wear it again.
