Ponyo (formal)

Formal (original design)


Last Updated: 03-22-2011

I'm nothing, if not adaptable. Three days before AWA '10, I was trying on my usual "formal" Integra ballgown, which tried to eat me! I ended up having to cut myself out! I was pretty bummed, until my husband came up with the brilliant suggestion of making a formal Ponyo.

After a surprise find of sparkly red shoes in the girls' shoe section of Target (I have very little feet) and an emergency fabric run to Jo-Ann, I was able to produce a cute party dress for Ponyo in just three days.

The dress is the same as my "normal" Ponyo dress, only made from red satin. The only deviation was adding in a glittery tulle overlay for the skirt. I replaced the gigantic bloomers with an equally gigantic ruffly petticoat bought at another convention for my Lolita cosplays and grabbed some scrap ribbon to tie around my head, positioning a big bow by my temple. Add in the aforementioned shoes, my wig and bucket and I was ready to dance the night away as Ponyo!
