|Costume type:||Costumes for Women|
This homemade costume for women entered our 2012 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Ally, the 'Mary Poppins' costume creator:
We decided to dress up like Mary Poppins and Burt from the movie "Mary Poppins". Our costumes were based on the "Jolly Holiday" scene. For the Mary Poppins dress, I went to Goodwill and purchased an old wedding dress. I shortened the arms and skirt length and added various amounts of ribbon to it. I purchased a plan red corset from goodwill as well and added the boning and lace to it, then sowed that onto the dress. I decorated a white Easter hat with tool and flowers from Walmart. I purchased the wig and umbrella from ebay.
Burt's costume is a combination of items found on ebay, excluding the jacket which was purchased at goodwill and covered with decorative tape to make the colored lines found in the movie.
