Studio Ghibli Party

Drink Ponyo Punch and get spirited away — but don't expect a catbus home.

Sure, you've paid tribute to your favourite Japanese animation house by watching and re-watching their films over and over again, but have you partied like you were in a Studio Ghibli movie? On August 12, Sydney events crew The Bait Shop wants to spirit you away to a world of castles in the sky, flying pigs, talking cats and princesses grown from bamboo shoots. Just don't expect to go catching a catbus to get home — and if the house starts moving, maybe it's because you've had a drink or two.

To be held at Hudson Ballroom, this Studio Ghibli-themed shindig will have plenty of those: Ponyo Punch, EspressNo Face, Mononoke Mojitos, Totoro Slushies... the list goes on. Themed beverages cost $5 or $10 depending on the type; however, they're not the only fun part of the evening.

Dressing up is heartily encouraged, with the best Ghibli-inspired outfit winning a $50 bar tab. You'll also be able to get a photo with life-size cutouts and face cutouts of your favourite characters, feast your eyes on Studio Ghibli visuals and pop into the Ghibli photobooth.
