I got to shoot my Jessica Rabbit at Edifice Studio in Manila, Philippines, with Jay Tablante and his full team.

Jessica Rabbit costume made by Yaya Han
Make-up: Yaya Han
Wig styling: Ara Fernando
Art Direction: Jay Tablante Photography :iconjaytablante:
MIA Production Design: Raffy Tesoro
Digital Imaging: Ryder Aquino
Model: Yaya Han
(I should note that Jay's team decided to change the color of the dress digitally from fuchia to red for this image)

Costume construction thoughts:
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.

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,用戴手套的手輕輕的撫摸著麥克風,是否讓妳幻想正在安慰著男友(老公)的陰莖呢,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^^
