In Space Jam, the 1996 Looney Tunes live-action crossover classic, NBA legend Michael Jordan is recruited by Bugs Bunny to join the Tune Squad against the Monstars – a team of nefarious toons who have stolen the basketball powers of other NBA superstars.

With a variety of different characters to choose from among the Tune Squad and Monstars Squad, including Michael Jordan, Bugs Bunny, Lola Bunny, Daffy Duck, Taz and more toons, there are more than enough costume options to suit any Space Jam fan’s cosplay needs.

How to Dress Like Tune Squad Michael Jordan

Michael Jordan Tune Squad Jersey:

After Michael Jordan retired, many thought they’d never see him in a basketball uniform again. They were wrong, but I bet they never thought they’d see him show up in a basketball jersey for a Looney Tunes basketball team!

As a member of the Tune Squad, MJ wears the team uniform featuring his iconic number ’23’. The Tune Squad uniform is white, consisting of blue and red striping around the sleeves and shorts. There is a Tune Squad logo on the front of the jersey which looks similar to the circular element featured at the beginning of many Looney Tunes cartoons.

Fortunately, you can pick up a Michael Jordan Tune Squad uniform on certain retail stores, including Amazon. Check out the links on this page.

Air Jordan Basketball Shoes:

You can’t talk about Michael Jordan on the basketball court without also bringing up his legendary brand of NIKE shoes – Air Jordans. In Space Jam, MJ wears a pair of special black Air Jordan sneakers that bring in elements of outer space. These sneakers are considered a classic and collector’s item even today.

While they may be tricky to track down, you can still find a pair of authentic Space Jam Air Jordan sneakers today. If you can’t find one, or don’t have the cash to dole out, you could also use any pair of black basketball shoes as part of your costume.

Michael’s Secret Stuff:

When MJ is feeling a bit winded on the court battling against the Monstars, he sometimes got a boost from his teammate Bugs Bunny who had a handy bottle of liquid labeled “Michael’s Secret Stuff”.

To replicate this prop, you’ll just need to find a plastic blue water bottle and place a yellow note on the front that reads “Michael’s Secret Stuff”.

How to Dress Like Tune Squad Bugs Bunny

Bugs Bunny Costume:

To pull off a Bugs Bunny Space Jam costume, the first step is figuring out how to look like Bugs Bunny. He is a large, grey anthropomorphic cartoon bunny with pretty distinctive look. Since he is such a popular character, you can find complete Bugs Bunny costume suits available for sale on many websites and Halloween stores.

But if you prefer to go with a more low key look, you can also just buy some grey bunny ears and a bunny tail, and use some face paint to give yourself the Bugs look. Just remember to wear some large cartoon hand gloves and oversized rabbit feet slippers to really capture the look.

Bugs Bunny Tune Squad Uniform:

Bugs wears the classic red, white and blue Tune Squad uniform. As the captain of the team, he wears the number 1 on his jersey. Bugs Bunny Tune Squad jerseys are available for sale on a variety of online websites, including Amazon.

Lola Bunny Space Jam Costume Ideas

How to Dress Like Tune Squad Lola Bunny

Blonde Hair & Makeup:

Lola Bunny is the vivacious romantic interest of Bugs Bunny in Space Jam. As a cartoon blonde bombshell, you will need to find a blonde wig if you don’t already have a bleach blonde hair color. Lola’s blonde hair is a puff that flows together with her brown bunny ears.

Check out the makeup tutorial below to really capture Lola’s look:

Lola Bunny Tune Squad Uniform:

Lola is a star player on the Tune Squad. Like Michael and Bugs, Lola Bunny wears the team uniform – a white basketball jersey with red and blue striping on the sleeves and shorts. She wears the number 10. But Lola wears her uniform a bit differently. Her uniform is form-fitting to show off her curves.

You can find a #10 Tune Squad jersey on various websites online, including Amazon. You can also choose to buy a Tune Squad themed pair of basketball shorts, or opt for a more form-fitting version of shorts to best replicate the look. Be sure to add a bunny tail!

Bugs Bunny Quote:

Why Michael! l thought you’d never ask! You see These aliens from outer space want to make us slaves in their theme park. They’re little. So we challenged them to a basketball game. Eh, what do we care? They’re little, so we challenge them to a basketball game! But then they show up and they ain’t so little… they’re huge! We need to beat these guys, ’cause They’re talking about slavery! They’ll make us do stand-up, the same jokes every night every night for all eternity! We’re going to be locked up like wild animals and then trotted out to perform for a bunch of lowbrow, bug-eyed, bad-headed, humor-challenged aliens! Eh, what I’m trying to say is… we need your help!
