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.

Your Jessica cosplay is amazing. You actually managed to turn yourself into a living cartoon with all the exaggerated features...and, for this type of costume, that is perfect.

Amazing dress, but I have to ask, how much padding was put in the breasts?? Or did you just shape it to your body?
Neitheram Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
awesome! You totally nailed this cosplay!! *u*
whuh Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2013
wow that's extremely impressive, i loved reading about how you managed to make this amazing costume hahaha. cause when i first looked at it, i was like.... "is this photoshopped?? this HAS to be photoshopped... but it looks so REAL" and it IS real.
now THAT is impressive, you'd think she'd be almost IMPOSSIBLE to cosplay with her shape but you pull it off like no other!

Ahmahgawd I stared at this for at least 20 minuets saying "Nobody has breasts THAT big that are real!"
Took me 20 minuets before I started reading the whole description. -feels silly-
Being a large DDD-cup with my mom being at an even E-cup I delve into the world of breasts and try to tell the real from the fake whenever I can. Excellent job! I was just about to start believing they might actually be real. xD Very good indeed.

How is it that you got the look down so perfectly... I mean the tiny waist the big bust everything...

I been wanting to pull the cosplay off but I haven't been able to due to my disproportionate bod

I can't truly believe you engineered this, I mean, proprtions like that are hard to even imagine without photoshop... But you DID engineer it, and it looks incredible. You really did the character justice. Excellent work!

This is probably my favorite shot of your Jessica. Jay did a wonderful job invoking the mysterious, sexy songstress that Jessica is in this photo.
I have to wonder how long it would take for you to get into the corset though!
