“Anything can happen if you let it.”Mary Poppins
October is quickly approaching and one of the first things on my to do list is to create my annual couples costume! If you didn’t know, Halloween is my favorite holiday and every year I look forward to all of the fun festivities that come along with it! Besides, Halloween is the perfect excuse for adults to play dress up. Am I right?
Last year I decided to turn my husband and I into two characters from one of my favorite childhood movies – Mary Poppins. After a few inexpensive purchases and a little bit of creativity we were able to transform ourselves into Mary Poppins and Bert. Check us out below!

Creating Mary Poppins and Bert
Once you have gathered your accessories you can easily create your look in a matter of minutes. Here is how we did it…
- Apply red flower tops to black hat brim using a glue gun.
- After dressing in a plain white button up and a black skirt, add a red bow tie and belt. You can purchase these items or create them on your own. I used satin ribbon to create my belt shown in the picture.
- Complete the Mary Poppins look by placing your hair in a low bun with a bright red lip.
- Lastly, add white gloves, a purse, and an umbrella. And just like that you are officially SUPERCALIFRAGILISTICEXPIALIDOCIOUS!
- Dress in grey button up and black jeans.
- Add black or grey paperboy hat.
- Tie red bandana around neck.
- Complete look with black shoes and black or grey vest.
- Lastly, add black make up to face to portray soot and carry a black chimney sweeping broom. You can purchase a chimney sweeping broom or create your own with a standard broom and black spray paint. And just like that you are officially CHIM CHIM CHER-EE!
