More Mary Poppins costumes and props on display at Disney D23 Expo...

In addition to the two wonderful outfits worn by Julie Andrews as the titular nanny in Disney's 1964 big screen musical, Mary Poppins, the Treasures of the Walt Disney Archives exhibit at the D23 Expo at the Anaheim Convention Center on August 9, 2013 also had a wonderful selection of lesser seen costumes and props on display.

Included in the special Mary Poppins exhibit to commemorate almost fifty years of the iconic musical were original costumes worn by The Banks family that the magical nanny comes to help, including garments worn by the mother and father, and their children 'Michael' and 'Jane'.

In addition to the costumes, the D23 Expo exhibit also had Mary Poppins seemingly bottomless magical carpet bag on display, which was cool to see up close, like seeing a little piece of Hollywood history.

Other props included were original alphabet nursery blocks used in the movie to spell out Mary Poppins, a jack-in-the-box toy, a St. Paul's Cathedral snow globe used by Julie Andrews and even a chimney sweep brush, probably from the musical's 'Chim Chim Cher-ee' song and dance number.

Be sure to stay tuned for even more fantastic costumes, props and memorabilia on display at this year's Disney D23 Expo in the days to come.

  1. I'm making myself a Winifred Banks costume for Halloween this year, and I notice the "Votes for Women" dress on display does not match the one in the movie...I wonder if it was a version of the dress they made but tweaked a bit before the final version?

    1. Possibly as it's from the Disney archives, but do you say that because of the colour, as the lighting in the exhibit didn't allow for flash photography?
