Jim and I don’t usually dress up for Halloween but somebody at our house needed to dress up! So we won by default!
One day I was browsing on Pinterest. What did we do before Pinterest??!?! Well, I saw this darling idea for a Halloween costume and I knew we just had to dress up this year. Fortunately we were invited to a costume party! Thank you Denise.
Here we are – Mary Poppins and Bert.
I managed to put both of our costumes together with items we already had (Jim’s shirt, pants and shoes) and a few trips to Goodwill and Target.
My skirt, blouse, red bag, hat and Jim’s vest came from Goodwill. My hat was originally natural straw but I just grabbed that bottle of spray paint and gave it a couple of coats. The flowers are from the Dollar Store.
I found my Mary Poppins shoes at Target as well as my black tights and umbrella. We borrowed Bert’s suspenders and cap from friends. I made my red tie, belt, and Bert’s scarf then we grabbed a broom from the shed and we were pretty much ready to go.
Thanks to my neighbor Katie for taking our picture!
I just have to share what my neighbor came dressed up as to the party we went to – here she is.
Can you guess who she is???
