A client asked FeeFiFoFun Costume Concierge for Mary Poppins Halloween costumes or accessories. I gave her a list of nine steps with a mix of new products from my web shoppe, as well as thrifted items from Value Village or her own closet.
Nine steps which will rock your Mary Poppins costume
Mary Poppins wears a sensible Shoe. I found the dance shoes at Mirena’s in Mississauga stylish and very comfortable for all my Victorian characters.
There are many tutorials online using only tin foil, paper maché and paint for the Parrot Head Umbrella.
Mary Poppins is a servant. As a result, her walking skirt would be simple high-waisted, ankle length and navy, black or dark grey in colour.
You probably have white shirt from your closet. For a Victorian Blouse remove the collar and replace it with lace.
I found a short length of red ribbon to be pinned at the throat.
Ideally find a fitted jacket whose length falls between waist and hip.
Most noteworthy is the classic Mary Poppins hat. I used black spray paint on FeeFiFoFun’s straw boater hat followed by adding flowers and berries using E600 glue.
Finally don’t forget light coloured gloves which my Grandmother said a lady like Mary Poppins always wears. If you are buying costume gloves keep in mind they are a standard size and might be too big.
