Modest Minnie Mouse Costume

Who doesn't love Minnie Mouse? I think she make an excellent idea for dress up?

But is you are looking for a Halloween Minnie Mouse costume, you will notice that though there are many very cute costumes to buy, every one of them is very skimpy.

To get around this problem, you could make the costume yourself. Alternatively you could buy each piece separately, doing this makes it easy to end up with a reasonably good quality outfit that can be used for more than one year.

You should also be able to use some of the items separately or as part of a different costume.

Here are the Pieces That Make The Costume
Forum Housewife Costume, Red, Standard 

This beautiful dress works well for a modest Minnie Mouse costume, but could also be used for a 50's costume as well.
You can now add the accessories to complete the costume.

Mary Poppins Costumes

A natural costume for anyone who is a fan of Mary Poppins.

I think these costumes are fun to wear, look cute and are flattering yet still modest.

Through out the Mary Poppins film, we see Mary Poppins in many get ups, first in the never to be forgotten scene coming down from the clods with her umbrella opened out, her magic carpet bag, her feet sticking out sideways, wearing a warm coat and scarf.

Later we still see her still dressed formally but always some bright and fun touch (like the red bow-tie). But in the park adventure she goes all out in a totally frivolous white summer dress with a red band in the middle and a white hat and parasol.
