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.

Its really quite remarkable how well you have managed to achieve this.

i thought approximating Jessicas dimensions, even with trickery was impossible.

I am DAMNED impressed! Most especially with the body sculpting know-how you pit into this. Two bras to make that amazing look makes so much sense thinking about it now. Please forgive me, but was there much worry about..... popping?

In any event, my wife would have ADORED this! WELL done!

Yes but seeing how Yaya makes all of her own costumes and is undoubtedly one of the most talented cops layers I've come across, I don't think she would have a reason to lie. Plus what she said she had done is completely believable.

The way I see it, If you're a fan you should be able to dress as the characters you love regardless of what country they originated from!
P.S Yaya, any plans on dressing up as Lady Death? You definately have the body for her! :drool:

There is an argument out there that Europeans/Americans shouldn't dress as anime characters because the belong to Japan. If that holds true, then the opposite should also be true and Asians should not dress as Occidental characters. And I will KILL the man who says this woman cannot dress as Jessica Rabbit!
