Wouldn’t it be great if we all had a Mary Poppins in our life? Someone who makes the kids enjoy doing their chores and sing Super-Cala-Fragilistic-Expialidocious while whipping up a delicious dinner. Ahh the life.
While we can’t all be Mary Poppins, we could totally dress up like her – and most of the items can be found in your closet! If not, don’t fret – we’ve included links so you can grab any items you may not already own to make your perfect DIY Mary Poppins costume :)
Over the course of the film, Mary Poppins (never just Mary) wears quite a few jackets from peacoats to victorian jackets in black or navy – gray works too! So using any of these pieces will work for the costume look. We love that this is fashionable enough that you could wear it even when you’re not pretending to be Mary Poppins.
A key part of the costume is Mary Poppins red bow tie but it doesn’t have to be a tie specifically, tied ribbon or a DIY bow will work just as well.
A vintage white victorian ruffle button up blouse should work just nicely.
Knee length to ankle length black skirts are required. *TIP* If you go with a knee-length skirt make sure to pair it with black tights.
Can’t forget the vintage oxford booties!
Or these black victorian boots.
One of the most crucial pieces is the infamous hat. These can be created easily by spray painting a straw sunhat black and applying flowers via a hot glue gun. Or you can buy the above from a talented artist on Etsy or this alternative on Amazon.
