Last photo I'll post of this costume for a while! It shows off the costume in it's entirety, and even has Roger in it to boot! This cust9om balloon Roger Rabbit was a surprise gift that awaited me at Dragoncon when I came downstairs in this cosplay for the first time. Isn't he cool?

Jessica Rabbit - Who framed Roger Rabbit
Costume made & modeled by me
photo by Brian Boling

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.

As a costume maker sometimes it just isn't fair. Some costumes you just add a pair of nice melons and boom it works! I wish I was a woman sometimes so I can have big boobs and my costume could be anything. But anyways your costumes are awesome. Love from Shanghai!

The dress consists of two push-up bras, her breasts are real.

Her breasts are implants, actually. But, do go on being in denial over this when there are pictures of her in earlier cosplay years with normal B cups and then, within the next year, she got fatter and got cow tits.

lol real. So she uses push up bras for every costume? No one has REAL boobs as big as hers and can keep a small figure. *smug face*

you're gorgeous, and you look exactly like her, which i find incredible. so much effort was put into this it's really unbelievable.
however, with a corset that tight, it looks really uncomfortable. LOL. i bet you couldn't bend over at all without having to worry about either losing too much air, or your boobs falling out. LOL.
