The Ideal Woman is a Cartoon

Confession- when I saw the movie 'Who Framed Roger Rabbit' I wanted to be Jessica Rabbit so badly my teeth hurt.   She was beautiful, she had perfect hair and eye makeup.   Her voice was gorgeous, she had legs for miles- and when she entered a room every eye was on her.   As I grew up I realized that I actually did not want to be Jessica Rabbit after all.   Mostly because she is an animated character.   In hindsight, rewatching this she was much hotter in my memory than in 'reality' and a lot of the heat came from the vibe she gave to the other characters, not so much the way she was drawn, although that didn't hurt of course. However, there is no denying the 'something' that she has- even in all her cartoon glory there is a spark.

Intrigued by the idea of a real life Jessica Rabbit, I started browsing YouTube, certain I would find pageants and drag queens dressed up as her- which I did.   What I did not expect to find was this:

Of course, I had to keep watching all the other videos that followed- I think I lost hours of time I will never get back but here is the most interesting one of a live person doing Jessica Rabbit make up:
