My fiance is in the Anchorage Symphony and was playing a children's Halloween concert.  So we needed something "family friendly."  There was a bit of crafting that went into our costumes this year. 



Crafted accesories:
Hat- started as an ugly straw hat, painted and adorned with flowers and ribbon
Bowtie
Chimney Sweep - cardboard+broomhandle+spraypaint
Red scarf


My lovely fiance bought me the antique umbrella.  It really made the costume.
See how much we love each other??

This is adorable. I can feel the love. If you ask me, Mary and Bert should have had a (family friendly) hook up in the movie. I thought that when I was 6 too. I wanted them to kiss. And now they're getting married. Smiley Nice costumes and it's super awesome you're engaged to a Symphony Man. Those are the good ones Wink

Hey Fiber People: I am very interested in personal swaps for painted/dyed roving or top. I can swap supplies or crafted items. Let's talk!

Great costumes!!  When I was a little girl I watched Mary Poppins so much I could recite pretty much the whole movie from memory.  What a great idea for a family freindly costume, and you guys did it so well.

Thanks so much everyone!  It was so much fun!

My first idea was to go as Peter Pan and Wendy, but then I realized that I probably couldn't get him to wear green tights.

I'm trying to think of other easily recognizable movie or book character couples for next year's costumes.  Any ideas?

The expressions are priceless! And his posture is perfectly "step in time" for sure. When we all have babies we should do the "peter pan" theme. A little baby "smee" and a little baby tinkerbell. I am thinking of more ideas, though.....
