When it comes to Jessica Rabbit pins, the number is surprisingly large for a character who was not used in any merchandising for many years. With that number now reaching over 600 as of 2013 - it's downright impossible to collect every single Jessica pin. Especially with Disney's use of Mystery Sets and the very low edition sizes from the Disney Actions days - it's pretty definite that no one out there can possibly have the entire collection. Well, one woman actually HAS accomplished this! Every Jessica Rabbit pin to date. Every park exclusive. Every LE 50. Naturally, I had some questions for her about her collections, which pins are her favorites and why she thought the hobby of pin collecting (and Jessica Rabbit pin collecting in general) became so popular.
How long have you been a pin collector?
Well, I've been a casual pin collector since before official pin trading started in 2000. I remember my first pin being some little Tinker Bell pin they sold at the Disney Store, sometime in the 1990s. I continued to purchase a pin here or there while at the Parks until 2005, when I found out about Pin Trading Nights at WDW, as well as the online pins at what was, at the time, Disneyshopping.com, and that's when things got serious!

The official 25th Anniversary of Who Framed Roger Rabbit is this month - and the party is just getting started. The ImNotBad.com Tumblr page, Jessica Rabbit World, is serving up the main course - but over here we are ready for some dessert. Back in the 1980's, kids birthday parties always had the cake as the highlight of the event. Usually, the cake was decorated with their favorite cartoon character. Cakes have certainly become more imaginative nowadays, but in some cases much simpler with the use of printing an image right onto the cake itself. It wasn't so back in the day, and bakers were often expert artists when it came to recreating an image using icing. Over the years, people have definitely had a interest adding the funny bunny and his beautiful wife to their wedding or birthday. Let's celebrate by taking a look at 25 Roger and Jessica Rabbit cakes!
