Homemade Jessica and Roger Rabbit Couple Costume

This is how we made our Homemade Jessica and Roger Rabbit Couple Costume. For Jessica, I was able to find a thrift store tight red halter dress for $7 (which was incredible, considering we had already decided on costumes). I had to do a few alterations, such as adding the slit. It didn't show up in the pictures very well, but I bought glitter and poured it all over the dress to make it shine in the light. I was able to find a wig, fake eyelashes, gloves, purple eyeshadow, and bright red lipstick. I added some extra jewelry too for effect. Not to mention my 5 inch heels to give the added height ;-)

For Roger, I bought 2 red ties, and sewed big yellow buttons on them, then attached them to red pants as suspenders (I could not for the life of me find red overalls!). I attached yellow buttons on the back as well. I bought the rabbit ears, which unfortunately did not have the pink, so I also bought pink felt, cut it to size, and added it to the white ears. We also bought a plastic lei, wrapped it around a wire hanger, and attached it to the middle of the ears for Roger's tuft of hair. A big bow tie, a bunny tail, a white bald cap, and some white gloves and some white paint completed the outfit. Oh, and for good measure, he carried around handcuffs all night, sporadically arresting people who he would call Eddie Valient. And of course, he slouched for much of the night for the height difference.

I have always loved the movie "Who Framed Roger Rabbit" and always thought Jessica Rabbit was the 'cat's pajamas' haha. My boyfriend and I therefore chose a Homemade Jessica and Roger Rabbit Couple Costume".

I bought a sequined tube dress on eBay for about $40 after shipping. I then sewed the slit so that it was more open and visible, and so that the dress flowed more when I walked. I then stitched the bustline, cinching it to give it more of a sweetheart shape. I had old white gloves, from my grad year, which I dyed purple using rit dye. The wig I also bought on eBay for about $40. The earrings I borrowed from my mom's old jewelry box; they're large, round, and gold, which was just what I needed! I sported some long uber eyelashes and went crazy with purple eyeshadow and red lipstick.

Roger Rabbit was constructed in one night in a hotel room. We bought white coveralls, cut out the shape of a one-piece overall and dyed them red. We bought a white long-sleeved T-shirt, as well as costume rabbit ears which came with a tail and bowtie. We dyed a pair of white gloves yellow. We also tried dying the bowtie blue but it didn't take very well; we cut out yellow circles of fabric and glued them onto the bowtie. Oh, and the buttons on the overalls are fabric too. He wore white shoes.

Gotta love my boyfriend for being such a good sport!

Awesome
by: IOW

I love your costume, it's amazing! It looks more like the real thing than almost all of the dresses available online! They all have straps and just don't look right! I'm trying to do the same but cannot find the right dress anywhere! Who'd have thought it could be so hard?! Even looked on eBay like you said but there's nothing. Wondered if you could help?

Try Betty Boop

I know your post is old, but if you're still interested, search for Betty Boop costumes online. There's one long one that looks much more like Jessica's dress than any of the "Jessica Rabbit" pre-made costumes. I'm 5'11", so it was too short on me, but it was very easy to add a large ruffle to the bottom. The dress has the great sweetheart top and the low back that are keystones to Jessica's classic look.

look in thrift stores

i'm sure it's too late by now, but also try thrift stores for old evening gowns. i used a red sequined dress for jessica rabbit this year and it looked amazing! for $5.95, you can't beat that. i spent more on the wig ($25) and shoes ($25) than for the entire dress. happy hunting!

Homemade Jessica Rabbit and Detective Couple Costume

I’ve always thought Jessica Rabbit was hot, and this was a very easy and comfortable costume to make and wear. I just purchased a slinky red dress from a thrift store, then bought red spray glitter (2 cans) from craft store and sprayed it so it would be sparkly.

Then ordered the stuffed Roger Rabbit off of eBay, and dressed my boyfriend up in an old style tie (also from thrift store) and brown suit and found a brown fedora in the craft store as well. The fake eyelashes and make up is pretty self explanatory. This Homemade Jessica Rabbit and Detective Couple Costume was quick and easy to make.
