I normally don't post on thursdays and I also never DIY my own costumes because there's just something about a perfectly curated costume with pieces that come all together in a bag that makes me happy, but this year I decided to go the DIY route and saved more than half the money I normally spend on a costume. I usually dish out anywhere from $75-100 on a costume every year and this year, I spent just under $30 and was thrilled with the results.
Read below for a breakdown of what you would need to re-create my look:
- White collar shirt (own)
- Black midi skirt (own)
- Black stockings (own)
- Black booties (own)
- White gloves (owned from a pervious costume)
- Black Umbrella (own)
1 black felt bowler hat from Party City @ $6.99
1 red bow tie from Party City @ $3.99
Assorted flowers from Michael's @ approx. $5
1 Red satin 3 in. ribbon from Michael's @ $3.99
1 Thrifted Suitcase @ $5.99
Grand Total: $25.96
All I had to do to assemble the costume was use a hot glue gun to glue flowers onto the plain black felt hat and voila you have Mary Poppins!
I hope this helped and thanks so much for reading!
