Sexy Playboy Mansion Costume and Party Ideas

The Playboy Mansion became famous in the 1970's for hosting some of the most amazing parties in history, and it's still at it today. With a guest list that has ranged from Marilyn Monroe to P. Diddy, the Mansion has built a reputation for being the place where the rich and beautiful come to let their hair down.

Hugh Hefner has amassed an empire spruiking beautiful women, and he's made the Satin Smoking Jacket and Playboy Bunny Costume synonymous with the good life. Whether or not you have your very own pool and grotto, a Night at the Playboy Mansion makes for a great and sexy costume party... hop to it!


PLAYBOY MANSION COSTUME IDEAS:

This one is pretty straight forward. Guys, you get off easy: wear your PJ's... no, not those old track pants! You're going to need a nice pair of silk pajamas, on the dressy side. And don't forget the Satin Smoking Jacket. Save your lungs for the extra-curricular activities though, stick to the fake smoking devices. A pair of slippers will make for a great finishing touch, leave the Homer Simpson ones under the bed and opt for something classier, like the Michael Toschi Grotto Slipper. If you really want to look the part, garb a 70's mop, like the International Playboy Wig available online alongside all these costumes at Costume Box.




Ladies, you get to have all the fun here: heels, stockings, gloves, wigs, bunny ears, bow ties and body suits... the sky's the limit! Go wild! The now infamous Playboy Bunny costume is a play on the tuxedo, and started out with waitresses at the Playboy Clubs of the 1960's wearing them as uniforms. They are now an icon for the multimedia empire Hugh Hefner has created around sexy women. Get into the spirit with one of these great Playboy Bunny style costumes from Costume Box, and be sure to accessorize with a wig or give yourself Playboy Bunny hair with these tips.


PLAYBOY MANSION THEME PARTY IDEAS:

It's pretty hard to pull off turning your house or apartment into the Playboy Mansion, but you can get the basics down.
  • Invitations: Do something swank, like black and silver, and be sure to encourage your guests to wear pajamas, cocktail dresses, lingerie, or sexy bunny outfits.
  • Decorate: Short of hiring a mansion, your best bet is to treat the location as a cocktail party and use the iconic Playboy logo as a back drop at the entrance and behind the bar. If you can get hold of some old Playboy magazines, frame the covers for atmosphere. Or make your own at OnCoverPage.com using pictures of your friends and print them off.
  • Food & Drinks: Stick to cocktails and champagne, and serve appetizers throughout the night. Need help figuring out how much food and drink to buy? Check out these great tips from Epicurious.
  • Staff: If you are staffing the event, be sure to get the cocktail waitresses and bartenders into Playboy Bunny costumes, or dressed up in black and white formal wear.
