Donny Kerabatsos from The Big Lebowski

Theodore Donald “Donny” Kerabatsos (played by Steve Buscemi) is a member of the same bowling team as the Dude and Walter.  A soft spoken man, Donny is often told to shut up impolitely by Walter prior to his death in the film.  Despite being an exceptional bowler, Donny is often seen wearing what appear to be secondhand bowling shirts, as he dons a colorful array, each with a different name embroidered on it (none of which are Donny).  If you have some modest sewing skills, you could add your own personal flourish to whichever color shirt you choose to wear for your costume.

Bunny Lebowski from The Big Lebowski

Bunny Lebowski (played by Tara Reid) is the wife of Jeffrey Lebowski in The Big Lebowski and a huge source of frustration for Brandt, as she flirts heavily with the Dude.  She is a former runaway and porn star with a shopping problem that puts her into very deep debt.  To recreate Bunny’s outfit, you’ll need to tap into your very rad ’90s side, as she favors neon green and very small bikinis.  Of course, depending on your comfort level, there are many ways you can channel the same vibe while covering up a little more.  Don’t forget your green toe polish, as Bunny’s little toe plays a big role in the film.

Maude Lebowski from The Big Lebowski

In the Coen Brothers’ film The Big Lebowski, Maude Lebowski (played by Julianne Moore) is a provocative avant-garde artist and the daughter of Jeffrey Lebowski.  She is highly critical of her father’s relationship with Bunny, and is the person responsible for the Dude losing his rug.  During their initial real life interaction, Maude is seen wearing a long olive green robe, and later, she dons a gold Viking valkyrie costume in one of the Dude’s dreams.  When crafting your Maude costume, you will need to decide whether the silhouette or the color of her robe are more important to you, as it can be very difficult to find one that does both.  Adding additional props and touches to a fabricated Maude Viking costume can help bring your costume to the next level.
