Warok in the Ponorogo community is an elder who is a role model. Meanwhile in the art of Reyog, warok is an army that relies on the truth. In dressing warok Ponorogo, it is famous for using surjan and drawstring maro gares or black three-quarter drawstring pants, othok belts and blangkon. Warok Ponorogo Blangkon has a black background with a white gadung jasmine motif. Just like Blangkon Surakarta and Yogyakarta, the Warok Ponorogo blangkon also uses a bulge on the back with a larger size. This research is a qualitative study with a case study approach in the form of blangkon warok Ponorogo. The results showed that blangkon warok Ponorogo was a combination of forms between Surakarta and Yogyakarta blangkon which appeared in the form of a loose leaf. The form of litter which is located from the tip of the head to the bending of the neck is synonymous with Surakarta blangkon. The prominent Mondolan Ponorogo is similar to Yogyakarta's Blangkon. The shape of the triangle on the front of the Ponorogo blangkon is the same as the Surakarta blangkon. The shape of the fabric folds and the shape of the blangon Ponorogo are the same as the Surakarta blangkon. Thus the form of Blangkon Ponorogo is a combination of the forms of Surakarta and Yogyakarta blangkon.
