Added DiffLines:

[[RealityIsUnrealistic Incredibly]], this trope is somewhat a TruthInTelevision. Hoop skirts (crinolines) ''did'' have a tendency to catch airstream and act like a drogue chute. There are cases of women on piers that were swept up by a gust of wind and carried out to sea. It was also a bad idea to hang around cliffs or tall buildings in this sort of contraption.


Added DiffLines:

* The crinoline. RealityIsUnrealistic.

* Princess Peach in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros2'' uses this to hover in the air and make long jumps. It ended up being more implicitly magical in the ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' games, however (note the [[BuffySpeak sparklies]] around her dress when she does it).
** In later games, Princess Peach uses an umbrella instead.
*** Needless to say, [[http://www.mariowiki.com/images/e/e7/Princess_Peach_Artwork_%28alt%29_-_Super_Mario_3D_World.png she's back to doing this]] in ''VideoGame/SuperMario3DWorld'', though she can still do it with powerups that completely remove the dress.

* Rachel Alucard in ''VideoGame/BlazBlue''. Ironically, although she [[ParasolOfPain wields an umbrella]] ([[EquippableAlly a cat which turns into one, no less]]), she doesn't use a ParasolParachute, except in her intro poses.
