At the PCPA, Cinderella was a magical production including 2 trick dresses. Ella had a dress that needed to be crocheted together each show. At the fastest, it took 22 minutes to crochet it together. Marie also had a transforming dress worn like a backpack and hidden in the train of her dress. It was rolled up multiple times throughout the show to reveal the dress underneath.

The series of videos to the right are Timelapse's of the trick dress being rigged together with a crochet hook.The last video is an upclose of the finished rigging.
The rigging for this dress was particular. When the chording was crossed or twisted, it would not pull correctly and fall through the eyes.
