Poppins, Batson…It’s a supercalifragilisticexpialidocious trip into the characters called Mary.
In 2018 my friend Julia commissioned me to make her a Mary Batson cosplay from Shazam for Sydney Oz Comic-con…when I was creating this I had to make my own version to match. I decided to create the white version of her dress for Sydney.
Flash forward to a 2019 and I found myself creating a red version to match Julia’s. I used my custom top pattern, patterned the lightning bolt, and used the skirt from the Simplicity 8185 for the skirt. Alongside a custom cape combining various versions of Mary’s cape. I used this same method for all three that I created.
During the Easter Parade this year, I decided to light Mary up with some LED’s for the night parade.
Earlier this year I attended Brickvention in cosplay. I put together a mostly op shopped Mary Poppins! The umbrella came from Zing and I customised a hat with flowers from Spotlight as well.
Mary was so fun to wear, the reception from the crowds was fantastic and I got to do a photoshoot with Richard Jones right next door the venue in the beautiful gardens.
