Create the Perfect Jessica Rabbit Costume

Red Metallic Holiday Christmas Gown
The one thing that everyone remembers about Who Framed Roger Rabbit (aside from the nightmares induced by Judge Doom) is the iconic beauty that is Jessica Rabbit, one of the most famous sex symbols of all time. She's not bad, she's just drawn that way, and she's a lot of fun to dress up as for fans of the movie. If you are shopping from the UK or EU, you can find Jessica Rabbit costumes here. US viewers, read on...

Forplay Women's
Mrs. Rabbit To You
Costume Set
First thing any Jessica Rabbit fan needs is her gorgeous slinky red dress with the thigh cut. My personal favorite is the one above, which while not billed as a Jessica Rabbit costume fits the bill perfectly. You can pick it up in small, medium and large. If you want a dress with straps, consider this one by California Costumes. If you go for either of these dresses, be sure to pick up some matching purple opera gloves. The one on the right is made of a less shiny material and comes with the gloves, so it's a cute choice too. 

Silver Screen Jessica Rabbit
Sinsation Wig
If you are lucky enough to have long flowing red hair then it is relatively easy to style it like Jessica Rabbits' hair: just straighten it out, part it on one side and tuck that side behind your ear. Place a bobby pin or two behind your ear if you are having trouble getting your hair to stay there. If you don't have red hair or its too short, then there's a very lovely wig on the left you can use to easily replicate the Jessica look. If you want a more red color look, this wig looks great.

Finally, its time to make up your face to look like Jessica Rabbit. For a more demure look you can simply use a bright red lipstick, but I'm of the opinion that this is a good time to go for a really dramatic look, really copy the source material. I've included a great makeup tutorial below on how to do Jessica Rabbit makeup which is just perfect, I highly recommend you check it out.
