View Full Version : Ocean Goddess (from Ponyo)

I'd like to try cosplaying the goddess from Miyazaki's Ponyo (she's Ponyo's mother), but I can't find any reference pics of her outfit because she's always floating. Has anyone seen any? It looks like a loose, flowing light blue or white robe/dress, but I can't really tell what the exact design is supposed to look like.

Eh, It's hard to find shots of Gran Mamare, but I did find two shots that might help piece it together for you.

Its long floating pale blue dress that changes several times through out the movie depending on her size. It is a very plain with wide long sleeves and a round neck line. As long as you use heaps and heaps of fabric you can be a little imaginative with the design. A good wig is very important espesh with one that is so dominant in the outfit as it is with grandmere.

Watch the DVD and pause it or sketch whilst watching to get some concepts :) The floating fabric, waving hair and jewels are the main parts of this cosplay.

***I've nearly finished making this same costume, I've used a long floaty blue gown I made for my college prom years ago, added long organza sleeves that are very wide at the end and made the jewellery.*** I'm actually pregnant so tried to think of anime mums for this summers costumes :) I hope that is useful to you!
