(Previously Posted on my old site)
I am sure many of you have seen a version of this cosplay all over Pinterest. Why not? Its from an amazing childhood movie and it looks awesome. Not to mention that I love to bring out the English accent whenever I can. So I bring you my Mary Poppins cosplay for under $50.
White Long sleeve shirt: $0
But you can find one at a thrift store for $7. Preferably get one that buttons all the way up to your neck. In my case, I had to pin mine to make it look like this.
Black skirt: $0
I had this skirt hiding in my closet, but you can find one similar here for $13
Black tights: $0
I always have black tights on hand, but head to your local clothing store for some $10 tights if you don’t own a pair.
Black heels/boots: $0
I had the perfect pair of heeled boots that fit for the costume. Any black shoes will work for this costume.
Red belt: $1
I just visited my local craft store for basic red ribbon. They luckily had one for a buck that was the width I need.
I made my hat for under $6 (not including glue and things like that). Visit this post to see how I made the hat.
Believe it or not, this was the most expensive part of my costume. I am sure you can find a red bowtie out there ( Thanks to Doctor Who for making them popular). But if you can’t, follow our bowtie tutorial to make your own.
Without everything I already own:$46
Not bad huh? I was able to pull this together for a last minute costume event that I had that night. Now who wants to go watch Mary Poppins with me?
