Jessica & Roger Rabbit Costume
Jessica & Roger Rabbit
|Costume type:||Costumes for Couples|
This homemade costume for couples entered our 2013 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Fred, the 'Jessica & Roger Rabbit' costume creator:
My wife and I wore these costumes to a party; won the top prize.
Dress and pants came from the thrift store, $5.
Shoes and wig from Amazon, $15 each
Jessica's make-up cost a lot if you buy it all from scratch - fortunately my wife had a lot of make-up left over from the 80's that helped. There's some great videos on You Tube for how to make Jessica's arched eyebrow, but note that you first must search out the videos for hiding your real eyebrow.
Roger's head is made from plain broadcloth. It took a lot of newspaper templates before I got even close to the right shape. There's a vent in the back to let air circulate. The nose is half of a toilet paper roll.
It also took multiple attempts to bend a coat hanger to the right shape to support the head and to hold up the ears. Ears were cut from a standard bunny-ear costume piece.
Eyes are cut from a cereal box, with 2 layers of open fabric, and then I used a marker to make the outline black.
