Love this pair of photos Leonard grabbed at Dragoncon. The lighting fits the character well.
Jessica Rabbit - Who framed Roger Rabbit
Costume made & modeled by me

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.

I believe you ❤️

I don't think anyone could think you were in drag. Saw this in a Sneaky Zebra music video and was like...wow....

I love that you made the dress pink. It is always portrayed in art, cosplay, and toys as red. Great job!

oh my goodness is Yaya the only Asian Jessica Rabbit out there i would love to meet a lady as adorably lovely and amazingly creative as she is.

Why am I breathing so hard?

maybe because Yaya dressing as Jessica is making your eyes pop out and your heart pumping out of your chest

She looks like that gold digger girl from Shark Tale.

except Jessica is not a golddigger its purely a coincidence that the Angelina Jolie fish is a Jessica Rabbit doppelganger

omg you are brave! I'd be so terrified that top would fall forward! I know everyone has commented on the exposure, but the dress detail is beautiful

A lot of people use clear straps on those that are hard to see.
