Mary Poppins

Contest Photo by: fivefifes
Category: Creative Creatures

Brief Description:

My daughter saw the stage show of Mary Poppins in December and has been growing her hair out since then so she could be Mary Poppins for Halloween.

Materials:

My sister sewed this costume herself as she could not find a pattern. She would pick up pieces as she found them, like the hat from a thrift store and the boots from a mail-order catalog.

Time to Create:

Well, it's been in the making for several months.
Contest Photo Tips and Guidelines:
  • Avoid clutter. Keep the background simple -- your gingerbread house or holiday cookie is the star!
  • Daytime, natural light is best. If your area is bright enough, try taking the photo without the flash.
  • Upload a horizontal photo. If you crop the image on your computer, make sure you keep a landscape 4:3 aspect ratio.
  • For best results, make your image 1200x900 (or "save for web").
  • With a digital camera, you can take as many photos as possible and choose the best one. Have fun!
