Kind of plain, but
nevertheless, for
the record

From Sylvia Marie


Here is singer/actress Melanie Martinez, sent by Dara

"I suggest Googling her; all her clothes are highly feminine. Strong elements of age-play involved in many of her videos, and they all have a dark twist. She must have had a pretty screwed up childhood!
She seems to be very successful as a singer for some time now - don't know how I haven't come across her before."

Bridal crease

From Sylvia Marie


Bo Perrsson comments:.:

"[Ever] question  why women don't want to wear big skirts? Have a look on Instagram. 

"Look at La Fortuna Quince Vestido: 'Young girls, age 15-25, even, find big skirts sexy. 60% of my viewers on YouTube have found me by searching "petticoats". I don't know how, but 42.7% of
my traffic comes from a certain Pettipond.com. I have about five female friends that wear and love big skirts. I am going to create new petticoat videos as I aim to make money from YouTube.'" 

ED:  Yes, that's true.  However we have found that, nevertheless, they won't wear them because they want to be like their friends and not stand out <PTP>.


She loves her petticoats!

What a nice dance  capture!

This lovely, but hazy, picture is probably the
way the memory exists in some of our minds: misty.

We will most likely never see those days again...<sigh>.

This we'll put in the pettis & corsets section,
even though the focus is on the interesting
hobble skirt, crinie or hoop outlined


...and we'll put these in the coat/frock section, although the
 one at right may not quite be appropriate

December Smatterings



"How many clouds of scented lace kiss each other under your skirt?"  
                                                                             
C. Govoni (1884-1965)

 
WHEN I SEE...
A fetching lass, enveloped in tulle,
declaring, defining the beauty of Man(kind)
Slim of waist, contours of mystery.
Dark tresses which defy description,
a mantel of the soul.
She leads on, unaware of her uniqueness--
Classic, haunting,
Deep auras of eyes
Deep vibrations from the heart
Deep color of the gentleness of her inner self.
I see jealousy
I see my yearning to take her place
I see, also, my utter, deadening sadness.
Tes Staylace -- July 12, 1992
Update Page Policies
Generally, updates are linked to the appropriate area so you do not have to search for it.  We keep updates for as long as six months,
after which we merge the individual entries into the appropriate areas of the site.  Very rarely is anything discarded.
Pettipond  ALWAYS attributes the source of pictures when possible.  Image contributions should include the source, when possible, so at least the site from which it is taken can posted with it. It makes no sense, and is unfair, to have the same image on the Internet more than once, especially if the site originally posting it doe not at least get the benefit of a link. If an image is not attributed, and later is found to be in violation of copyright laws, it will be removed.
The Pond is FIRSTLY a petticoat/bouffant/crinoline site, and SECONDLY a TG site.  Image contributions are always welcome and appreciated, but our policy is to not post TG images (with the exception of Poufbunny Parlor Pinups and the occasional VERY passable CDer (in our Flash Pinup section).  Please do not be offended - there are many TG sites on the Internet, but only ONE Pond, and we want also to be inviting to GGs and non-TG males who merely appreciate females in petticoats!
Pettipond Reflections response additions will NOT be listed in this area.


Support our brave troops, wherever they are!


 

Support Israel's fight for survival!
It needs our help now more than ever,
 as it is the only democracy in the Middle East
