Every Mary Poppins Costume Needs a Parrot Umbrella

Mary Poppins costume

Mary Poppins is practically perfect in every way, but you don’t have to go for an one hundred percent match when you cosplay as her. You can piece together her costume with items of clothing you already own or find at thrift shops and then make the accent pieces by hand – like her giant upholstery bag or her parrot head umbrella. Cassie Stephens made the umbrella using a wooden handled one as the base, and the modifications were simple:

As soon as I got home, I busted out the tin foil and started sculpting the parrots head. I was too impatient to mess with the masking tape portion of ‘mache’ing so I hopped straight to the covering-in-sticky-newspaper part. I’d later come to regret this (like so many things in my life) as it prevented me from having a smooth surface for my bird.

After taking what seemed like days to dry, I painted him with acrylic paints and used an image from Pinterest as my inspiration.

This is a great example of how easy cosplay can be.
