Why did my bunny costume scare my cat so much?

Is my cat possessed or did a large bunny kill her parents? (More inside.)

Last night, my friends and I went Halloween costume shopping. I bought bunny ears and a tail and a bowtie. We came back to my apartment and modelled our costumes for each other. My cat watched us peacefully. When I put on my bunny ears, a sudden change came over her...
Her hair stood on end. Her eyes turned into large black spheres. She began to hiss and tremble. She made this HORRIBLE low rumbling noise that was completely unlike any noise that's ever come out of her. Much like a dog it was like a low growl (and she normally has a high pitched voice) that sounded something like RRRROWWWW RRRROW. It was really, truly, horribly scary.
Obviously, I took the ears off and she recovered. But can anyone suggest why in the world she had this reaction? I feel like I'm in a Stephen King novel!
