Sheryl T. has sent some
stillclips from the 1977 film,
Pete's Dragon

"There are a few notable scenes in this movie, namely with Miss Reddy's tavern dance scene on top of the bar counter. There's also a
small bit where the dragon snags the petticoat of a rude schoolteacher onto a nail, causing it to rip off in front of the townspeople."

Mama Mia: Here We Go Again

Sheryl T. has sent some
stillclips from the 1970 film,
Rio Lobo

"There are only a few snippets in this movie, but primarily focus around Miss O'Neil's dashing from point A to B,
gathering up skirts and showing large portions of petticoat."
 


Jimmy Vargas:
"The alternative front cover of my forthcoming book Lust Angeles, featuring muse Liliana Scarlatta
working her tarantula crinolines. 
The book features intermittent references to froufrou to
keep readers intrigued amongst the noir tale."

A bit of panache...

Sent by Sylvia Marie



Not sure if this gown, sent by John N.,
is specifically a Spanish dance costume,or
merely a designer's use of the concept.

In any case, it is surely delicious!
 

Elizabeth Ann: "This is most likely 'a designer's use of the concept," like you've state.  Looks like a runway pose (and background), and the shoes are wrong for
dancing most cultural dances.  (I've done ballroom dance in both gender roles, and I would never attempt Spanish dance in those heels!) Love that dress, though!"

Sylvia Marie has sent this picture of
Loretta Young with the file name of theredlist'

We are unable to identify it on IMdb
Can anyone help?
 

Elizabeth: "I contacted 'TheRedList' and inquired as to how they came into possession of this particular picture.  Eventually, they replied.  The answer is
that most  (but not all) of the pictures on this web page were studio publicity photos, but NOT necessarily used as or for publicity for any particular movie.
  
Sometimes publicity pictures were taken and published just to keep an actor or actress’s name and face in the public eye."


Gotta love unfurling petticoats,

A country-unidentified folk-costumed couple

From Chiffon

Geoff. in Australia: "This is a Czech Kroje (skirt) with very starched petticoats. The girl is wearing only three petticoats, generally they wear up to five of these heavily
starched cotton petticoats. Search ‘hody’ and/or ‘kroje’ and you should come up with photos or videos of Czech girls and women in costume. I have collected many videos
and photos of Hody celebrations and Kroje with petticoats. Certainly some of the girls obviously know the power of petticoats as they ‘flaunt’ them frequently."

"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.
