DIY Mary Poppins Costume Separates
If you want to make your own costume and only need a few costume separates, you can find some great ones below here. One of our favorites is Mary Poppins carpet bag which is shown first below.
Mary Poppins Skirts
Any of these skirts can be used to make a nanny or Mary Poppins outfit. Add your own flair to a ready-made skirt or piece together a costume from separates that can be used for other Victorian or Steampunk costumes or cosplay.
Victorian Nanny Blouses
These Victorian blouses can be used for just about any Victorian Steampunk costume. The first blouse is simply stunning and more comfortable to wear than the other two. But if you want a ruffled front blouse for your costume, either is a good choice. You can also add embroidery to any of these for added color and interest.
Mary Poppins Shoes/Boots
For the entire Mary Poppins costume in any version, you need the right type of shoes or boots. Any of the three below will work. If you don’t want a boot, the Funtasma is ideal. Black boots are the right choice for the nanny costume. White for the party dress.
