Mary Poppins and her carousel horse – A bike costume!

I love Mary Poppins and I had this idea for Atlanta’s Streets Alive. It’s an event where they close a major road in Atlanta just for foot and bike traffic. It’s a big party and tons of fun!

I wanted to dress up my bike and used cardboard covered in duct tape and accented with vinyl stickers. It was actually pretty easy! The carousel pole is a fun noodle covered in duct tape. Everything was attached to the bike with zip ties.

I made a quick Mary Poppins biking dress with white and red performance spandex from Joanns. It’s a moisture wicking fabric and worked great! It also has several pockets-including a large back pocket for cell phone/wallet. I hope to wear this to run in the RunDisney Princess races one year.

I was also fortunate to recruit three penguins! I made their penguin head bike helmet covers with black spandex and felt.

Atlanta Streets Alive is such a fun event! It’s highly recommended and more fun in costume!
