In the 80s classic Who Framed Roger Rabbit?; Jessica is very faithful and loyal wife to her husband and helps in the investigation to save Roger and Eddie. However, she is considered suspicious for her cold and distant appearance, but refutes the accusations by expressing that she is not bad, they just drew her like that.
She is a combination of different actresses such as Rita Hayworth, Veronica Lake, and Lauren Bacall. She is a spectacular redhead with a voluptuous physique and is the dream of every cartoon character.
She is known for her form-fitting red sequin dress and voluminous red hair. See the tips below to learn how to make your own costume.
How to Dress Like Jessica Rabbit
One of the most important aspects of Jessica’s costume is her iconic makeup. Follow these simple steps to recreate her look:
1. Eyebrows: Jessica has thin eyebrows, therefore to achieve the effect of curved and thin eyebrows you must hide your eyebrows, for this use glue stick and apply it on each eyebrow, waiting for the product to dry.
Then with the help of a makeup sponge you add makeup base in the area of the eyebrows to hide them and spread the product to cover the imperfections and level the skin tone.
Then with pomade or the product to paint eyebrows that you have at home, make each eyebrow light brown, forming a curve in the eyebrow similar to that of Jessica Rabbit and proceed to fill.
2. Eyes: With the help of your fingers or a makeup brush apply a lilac shade to the eyelids of the eyes and to deepen the look use a purple shade around the first shade you applied, blending well with the windshield wiper technique; that is, spread the shadow from one side to the other. You apply mascara and use false eyelashes to enhance Jessica’s look.
3. Lips: Jessica has voluminous lips and to create this effect without using botox, with the help of a pencil contour the lips in red, but you are going to do it on the outside of your lips and following the shape, then apply a red lipstick intense to fill and in this way, you will create an illusion of thick lips.
Use a red wig and with an iron or curling iron you will make waves in the wig, and then comb the wig to form the waves similar to Jessica’s. Remember to do a side retreat to simulate the appearance of the character.
Jessica Rabbit’s red dress is the essential part of this costume. It features a plunging neckline revealing her ample bust and a large slit down the back. For this you need a red dress, so start looking in the closets of your friends and aunts to find it, you can use a long dress or a short dress, the important thing is that it is red.
Later you modify the dress; that is, you cut the opening of the skirt to show one leg, make the deep neckline of the back, and cut the silhouette in the shape of a heart in the part that covers the breasts. This step will only be carried out if the dress is long-sleeved and covered, if the dress is low-cut, you do not need to apply these steps.
Take the gloves you have at home and dye them blue to represent the gloves the character uses.
In our wardrobe there is no shortage of red high-heeled shoes, so it’s time to dust them off and use them to complete the daring look of the sexy Jessica Rabbit.
