Jessica Rabbit is the sultry "human" wife of character Roger Rabbit. She is strong, independent and incredibly attractive. She is known for her famous line "I'm not Bad, I'm just drawn that way." Ever since I was a child I have always loved Jessica Rabbit and it was wonderful to get to be her!
I made this costume for a charitable fundraising even for Casey House in Toronto. It was a Beefcake Cheesecake photo fundraiser where people could donate to come in and have their pictures taken with their favourite characters. I tried to make this as accurate as possible, which meant it was completely backless and cut below the waist. This meant it had to be held up completely with tape. which all things considered worked out okay, but it was SO painful to take off at the end of the night. I had planned on putting much more detailing into it but this was one of those costumes that fought me every step of the way so it is what it is ^^; I do hope to get to do this costume again at another time, but I do think I will sacrifice accuracy to make a better structured garment.
