BACKSTORY: Back in October of 2009, I cosplayed as Ponyo from Miyazaki’s film Gake no Ue no Ponyo/Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea. I’ve always wanted to cosplay from a Miyazaki film but just never did or got the chance. I fell in love with this movie instantly and decided pick Ponyo as my first Miyazaki cosplay. Though I knew I couldn’t really pull her off age-wise. She’s like…FIVE. And I am not. (She has to be the youngest character I’ve cosplayed ever. Haha.) This is one of my most comfortable cosplays. Hopefully I’ll make more Miyazaki cosplays someday. :D
I have so much fun my other Ponyo-peeps. <33
CONSTRUCTION: Pretty easy! My legs and torso are obviously longer than the character so the big thing I had to watch out for was keeping everything in proportion to my own body.
Patterns used: Simplicy 2777 (for the bloomers)
Dress pattern was Simplicity 8851 and I used the high collar from McCalls 4369.
