Best Yosemite Sam Costume Guide
Looney Tunes started in the 1930s and has been continuing to put out funny shorts, films, TV shows and comics ever since. Mel Blanc is famously known for his many voices during the original Looney Tunes, bringing to life many famous faces we know today. Bugs Bunny had spent a lot of time running away from his enemy Elmer Fudd, but the creators wanted a tougher challenge for the witty rabbit. That’s when Yosemite Sam was created.
He debuted in 1945 and was based off the director Friz Freleng. He uses wilder and more violent tactics to try and catch Bugs Bunny, but never succeeds. He has a short fuse and is very hot-headed, which lends to Bugs being able to wind him up easily. For Yosemite Sam’s rough western outfit, you’re going to want a Cowboy Hat, Fake Mustaches, Casual Dress Shirt, Men’s Jeans, Dress Belt, Western Boot, Bandanas and Toy Cowboy Gun.
Yosemite Sam Cosplay Costumes
Over the years of Looney Tunes, Yosemite Sam has gone through several outfits. Depending on what the setting of the short was about, he would have a costume that would match. Throughout the running of the series, he has been seen as a prison guard, police officer, warrior, pirate and Indian chief. However, his most iconic look is that of the western cowboy.
The best part about Looney Tunes is how many characters there are to choose from. Why not make it a group cosplay with some friends? Some characters they could come as are Bugs Bunny, Tweety, Tasmanian Devil, Daffy Duck, Sylvester, Porky Pig, Elmer Fudd, Marvin the Martian, Speedy Gonzales and many more!

About Yosemite Sam
Samuel Michelangel Rosenbaum, or otherwise known as Yosemite Sam, is a character from the series Looney Tunes. He’s had many voice actors, but his most famous one would be Mel Blanc. He was originally made so that Bugs Bunny had someone tougher to face, as Elmer Fudd was seen as a softy. The character is based off a cowboy from the wild west and speaks with a harsh tone and accent. He’s smarter than Fudd in the sense that he won’t often fall for the same trick twice, but he still can’t outwit Bugs Bunny.
Yosemite Sam can get a little cocky at times, which normally leads to him falling for one of the rabbit’s tricks. His short temper is often what sparks his chase for the rabbit, normally because Bugs Bunny has done something to purposely annoy him. He’s a very outgoing character and his personality, and voice, fills the screens.
