To cosplay as Mary Poppins means being as prim and precise as possible and Amanda, also known as JediManda, embodied that when she made Mary’s white dress. She made the corset, gown, hat, and gloves from scratch and modified a pair of boots. Cosplayer Bubblesgal0re sculpted the parrot head umbrella handle, then JediManda painted it to look like antique ivory (you can see the beginning of the paint job in a picture below). With all the embroidery on the sleeves and skirt, this project looks like it required a fair amount time to complete. It’s obvious Amanda paid attention to all the details of the ensemble.
