I have never posted an iPhone photo on Deviantart before because of the lack of quality, but this shot actually turned out pretty well for an iPhone camera and I'm so excited about the costume, I just have to share!!! I color corrected the image a bit and added a watermark but it is not photoshopped otherwise.

So here you have a sneak peek of my newest cosplay: Jessica Rabbit - Who framed Roger Rabbit
Costume made & modeled by me
iPhone 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.
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. No photoshop, although even with my final measurements of 41-23-39 it's still not Jessica Rabbit's accurate measurements. Hers are probably indeed humanly impossible. ^_^;;;
Also, I went with the hot pink (fushia) colored dress from the movie, deliberately, instead of red, because I've always viewed Jessica as orange hair, pink dress, purple gloves.
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.

There are Swarovski crystals on the dress & gloves, which were glued on with help from Mary Cahela!

I adore my wig which is a Matilda from Arda Wigs! Styled with help from Ara Fernando!

The exaggerated bedroom eyes makeup involving covering up eyebrows with wax was created by me!

Debut: Dragoncon, Friday, 6pm :)

I think this is the closest thing to the Jessica proportions that I've seen so far.

It gives the illusion of the Jessica's figure broader upper shoulders and bust, very thin waist, and curvy hips.

Incredible job :D

LOL awesome

u should be careful with that corset... in so many ways
ModerneVampiressa Featured By Owner Sep 15, 2012

Said it once, say it again... People need to stop trying to play Jessica.

sonicwindartist Featured By Owner Sep 16, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
... why ?
ModerneVampiressa Featured By Owner Sep 16, 2012
Because the proportions are impossible, no one can get the wig to look right, and because it makes toon purists wanna scream.


While an admirable attempt to portray Jessica, this costume just isn't up to the level we've all come to expect from the infamous yaya. (all hail, yadda ydaa....)

Yeah, her MLP was decent; it was pandering, but decent.
Her Catwoman was good... Not gonna deny that I liked the original design better than Arkham, but hey, it was her choice.
Her Mulan was pretty accurate. Not the exact Mulan costume, but what Costume is ever 100% accurate? I liked her fabric choices, she did good.
Her Carmilla costUme was Superb! I've never seen a better one.

Now.....This one?
Her torso looks too short, her hips look bulky, her thighs are too wide, and the top of the dress....just no.
The bangs on the wig look good, but the curled ends just don't say "Jessica" to me. The makeup was good, the eyes WERE a risky choice, and she pulled it off pretty well.

Her choice for the pink dress? She said the Red was too "Lady of the Night." Hate ta break it to you, Yaya, but that's pretty much who Jessica is. Yeah, she's more than a sex symbol, yeah she's just "drawn that way." But go big, or go home.

Overall it's a good costume, but it could have been better.

Jessica Rabbit is one of my favorite characters from when I was a kid.
She was and is a lot of what I wish I could have the confidence to be. Proud of the way I look, and not scared to show it off.

I think Yaya has partially missed her opportunity with this cosplay.

sonicwindartist Featured By Owner Sep 16, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Calm down -.- Thats your opinion fair enough, and clearly no one is ever going to get those exact proportions without gross surgery or photoshop as its just unrealistic obviously, but people can still try, no harm in that at all. Why should they not be able to do it just because people like you 'dont like it' ?? Its a bit of fun, calm down.
