Mary Poppins (jolly holiday dress)

Mary Poppins

Description

I always adored this movie when I was little.
I used to watch it several times.
The actress Julie Andrews has such an amazing voice and the songs/ settings were an inspiration for me.

This dress/outfit was chosen because I like the combination lace/Victorian so much.

As this was quite rare to cosplay, I asked my friend Tom to be my Bert.
It was an amazing time and I still have much respect for our nanny. ;-)
Tom and I had a wonderful time, we enjoyed it a lot!
Little children and grandparents were fond of us.

Unfortunately some things did not arrive on time at FACTS. The shoes were not completed because of that and the part of our lace dress (chest part) was slightly different.

I chose tea roses because they go to drink tea at Teas. (the name of the place with the penguins).

The parasol head was changed 3 times.
First because I made the parrot head, secondly because I thought it was a flamingo (pink etc) and lastly it was another birds' head.
Mainly because it was difficult to see what type of bird it was on the pictures.

The parasol: see progress pictures but is was a "common" white parasol, altered it badly
The hat: bought it and altered it badly
under blouse: bought
Corset: still not that tight but it was entirely made
Lace dress: completely made
(under)skirt: completely made
Gloves: completely made
Shoes: bought white shoes, painted them partly and made half bootcovers
