* The falling scene as Alice falls down the rabbit hole in Disney's version of ''Disney/AliceInWonderland'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pHte24GGHD4 (seen here)]]. This trope is used to explain why she falls slowly enough to look around her and ruminate on the whole situation, which in the book goes [[RealDreamsAreWeirder unexplained.]]

It ended up being more implicitly magical in the ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' games, however (note the [[BuffySpeak sparklies]] around her dress when she does it). She also has this in ''VideoGame/SuperMario3DWorld'', though she can still do it with powerups that completely remove the dress. Other times, she just uses her parasol.

Falling is a very unladylike activity on the whole. There's lots of tumbling and screaming, your hair and clothes get ruined and there's the danger people below may see your underwear. This trope offers an alternative for the more ladylike and feminine of tumblers especially Princess characters with a PimpedOutDress. Basically, a character's dress or skirt flares out in mid-air forming a parachute shape and somehow slowing their descent.

The thicker and more layered the material the better. Don't worry about terminal velocities and drag coefficients (see PunyParachute), [[RuleOfFunny the laws of physics tend to give way to the opportunity to see a slightly comical petticoat exposure.]]

**It also happened in the 1988 Burbank Films Australia version.



* In the first episode of ''Series/JackOfAllTrades'', Jack rescues President Jefferson's niece from a French fort in Canada. To escape the fort, Jack and the girl jump off a high cliff. They are saved because Jack grabs on to her feet and her dress billows out to form a parachute. (Jack also gets an excellent view of her petticoats.)

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.

* The crinoline. RealityIsUnrealistic.
