Jessica Rabbit - Who framed Roger Rabbit
Costume made & modeled by me
photo by Anna Fisher [link]
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:
Everyone else can go home. You have nailed the character.
Just omg wowza XD
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，大腿緊緊夾著濕濕的陰部，總是讓妳很困擾吧，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 thought approximating Jessicas dimensions, even with trickery was impossible.
btw, could you breathe ok?
In any event, my wife would have ADORED this! WELL done!
Jessica isn't Asian... hahaha
- just my opinion
