Emily Blunt’s Mary Poppins: DIY Cosplay
It’s time to create a supercalifragilisticexpialidocious cosplay with our DIY Mary Poppins Returns costume guide!
Mary Poppins is back for round two and better than ever. Michael Banks’ children are playing with his childhood kite when it’s blown away, and guess who finds it to return. You guessed it—the parenting expert, babysitting extraordinaire with the bottomless purse herself.
Mary Poppins is prim, proper, and put-together. In Mary Poppins Returns, she’s similar but different to the original played by Julie Andrews in 1964. She’s gotten a slight upgrade. She’s rocking a pencil skirt with a tucked-in polka dot blouse and a bowtie. Oh, and if she’s not at home, she’s not without her gloves.
Her bright blue striped coat is a bold statement with puff sleeves. And she dons a pretty little red hat atop her perfectly styled hair, and a bright red scarf and red shoes. You can’t forget her signature carpet bag—where will she keep absolutely anything you could possibly need? And a black umbrella is absolutely imperative, preferably with a parrot head handle. Ms. Poppins travels in style.

How to Dress Like Emily Blunt in Mary Poppins Returns
Mary Poppins’ hair is a beautiful chesnut-auburn color that’s perfectly styled—not a hair out of place. A little bit of research about classic ’30’s up-dos will help you learn how to style your hair or a wig. If you’re not comfortable doing this yourself, you could ask a friend or find a stylist in town to help you.
Clothes & Accessories:
If you don’t have the time or resources to shop for, make, or forage through thrift shops for the pieces that make up Mary Poppins’ outfit, you can buy the complete set online.
You can also shop around. Mary Poppins has many different looks throughout the film, including her signature blue coat & red hat. She’s also got a big, pink, puffy dress with a bustle, and another outfit with a red coat with chevrons and a blue hat. A little bit of simple research will show you how she dresses, and some shopping patience & creativity, or some advanced seamstress skills will help you channel your inner Mary Poppins to create your outer.
If you’re going with the blue coat “signature” look, make sure to find a pair of little red shoes with a short heel and a bow, a red hat to pin to your hair, a red scarf with black polka dots, red satin gloves, and a little red bowtie.
Mary’s always got her carpet bag and black umbrella with a parrot head handle. You can order a replica of the bag she carries in Returns, or shop thrift & antique stores for something similar but different.
A black umbrella will be easy to find in stores, but you may have to look online for one with a parrot head handle.
