Originally released to an eager public on 27th August 1964, Mary Poppins is an American musical fantasy film directed by Robert Stevenson and produced by Walt Disney, with songs written and composed by the Sherman Brothers.  Since it’s release it continues to be a huge family favourite despite, or maybe partly due to the dodgy English accent of Dick Van Dyke. With screenplay by Bill Walsh and Don DaGradi and loosely based on P. L. Travers' book series of the same name. The film, which combines live-action and animation, stars Julie Andrews in the role of a magical nanny who is employed by a dysfunctional London family where she uses her unique brand of lifestyle to improve the family's dynamic. 
 
On it’s release Mary Poppins was greeted with universal acclaim, receiving a total of thirteen Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture — an unsurpassed record for any other film released by the Walt Disney Studios — and winning five; Best Actress for Andrews, Best Film Editing, Original Music Score, Best Visual Effects, and Best Original Song for "Chim Chim Cher-ee". In 2013, the film was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant" which just shows that countless parents and children who have sat enthralled by the film definitely knew something.
 
And nowadays the fun doesn’t have to stop with watching the film as there are plenty of Mary Poppins themed fancy dress costumes for both adults and children.  At Karnival Costumes we’ve both Mary Poppins fancy dress as well as the famous chimney sweep outfit worn by Dick Van Dyke – Bert- for part of the film.
