Love this pair of photos Leonard grabbed at Dragoncon. The lighting fits the character well.
Jessica Rabbit - Who framed Roger Rabbit
Costume made & modeled by me
photo by Ljinto

Jessica Rabbit has always been one of the most mesmerizing cartoon characters to me - as a kid she made me watch the movie over and over again, and as a cosplayer, she was always a huge challenge for me to portrait. I've been collecting materials for her for almost 2 years, and wanted to make this costume to the best to my abilities.

The shape is not photoshopped, just clever cosplay engineering.
I drafted & made a custom corset to create the extreme shape and then made the dress to fit over it. I engineered 2 Victoria's Secret Miraculous bras into the corset, which is steel boned coutil. The extreme illusion is created by pulling in the waist, padding the top and wearing a booty bump hahaha.
The dress itself is made from a spandex sequin fabric, and 1000+ S20 Swarovski crystals are glued on the fabric for
extra bling, tedious time consuming handywork with help from Mary Cahela. I specifically chose pink instead of red for the dress because in the movie her famous singing scene features a pink dress. I also like the color combo: orange hair/pink dress/purple gloves more than the red dress which can sometimes come across as "lady of the night" in certain lighting. Pink makes the entire outfit look more cartoon-y!
Here is a reference image of Jessica in the pink dress.
Here is a youtube video of Jessica in the pink dress doing her famous stage performance from the movie.
Here is a work in progress collage of my Jessica Rabbit dress.

I adore my wig which is a Matilda from Arda Wigs! Styled with help from Ara Fernando!

I also went with the route of cartoon makeup, covering up my eyebrows and painting over them. It was a risky choice for makeup, and since Dragoncon I got my share of comments about going drag lol, but when I decided to portray such an iconic character as Jessica Rabbit, I didn't want to fall short of the makeup when everything else was so exaggerated.

Amazing. Recently I found a book on cosplays and one page had you as Jessica Rabbit. I don't know about you but I would be so happy that something I could make made it into something like that.

Damnit.......... Back to the bathroom for 10 min....
Mainthegap Featured By Owner Oct 25, 2014
the costume is perfect, the hair are the same, the beautiful face with the ruby lips are matching, the charming eyes with looong eyelashes are there with their rightful makeup, the super hot body keeping up the dress by miracle wasn't forgot... wish i could be the Bob Hoskins at the night club table teased by this wonderful Jessica ^^

Your cosplay brings back the feelings i had watchin the movie as a kid (a strange hotness all around the body and the fantasy of being a Tom Thumb between Jessica's dancing chest xD)

in short, congrats, a Jessica Rabbit cosplay couldn't be any better than this :)

Actually, now that I get a closer look at your bust (heh), I can see how much the cloth just out from the body. It's very thick around it. I love how you pull off that illusion.
