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

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.
Other Deviations of this costume:
looks just like her
妳好美，每次COSPLAY也很漂亮，妳的胸部超大，扮演的角色又很性感，每次都露乳溝露超深，腰又很細，腿又修長，這張Jessica rabbit造型，穿絲襪的美腿光澤好漂亮，翹腳的過程中，大腿緊緊夾著濕濕的陰部，總是讓妳很困擾吧，因為妳總是忍不住COSPLAY時戴手套，但又常常因為太亢奮感到濕濕，妳COSPLAY超喜歡戴手套，也很喜歡戴最長的緞面手套，爽翻了，粉紅高跟鞋好美，眼睛也好誘惑，這雙超長紫手套已經拉到手臂一半，褶皺還那麼多，戴手套的手輕輕撫摸著麥克風，好希望是在撫摸勃起的陰莖，戴那麼長的手套實在太爽了，看著妳戴手套真的好想自慰，希望妳以後結婚的時候要像Emma frost那樣，要戴最長的白手套，而且要戴最長的手套跟老公做愛^^
I agree too, the pink dress suits the character heaps better than red. I love the make up too and think it was very brave move of yours to do the eye brows and line on the eye lid like that...you also have the right shaped face and nose to pull off Jessica's expressions! Nice work, I really enjoyed reading your AC too
But seriously, the detailing is amazing, from the figure shape you created to the makeup.
This is the best I've ever seen.
Its so perfect its absolutely insane!
I can only imagine how hard it was to put this together so perfectly.
