Best Daisy Mason Costume Guide
Daisy Mason (nee Robinson), is a former kitchen maid turned assistant cook in the PBS historical British drama, Downton Abbey. She lives under the care of the house’s cook, Mrs. Patmore. She has a massive crush on Alfred Nugent, who works as a footman at Downtown Abbey. This crush led to conflict between Daisy and another kitchen maid, Ivy Stuart, who also likes Alfred. On Valentine’s Day, both girls received cards, and Daisy thought that hers was from Alfred. It turns out that it was Mrs. Patmore who sent Daisy the card; she did not want the Daisy to be left out, mainly because it was Alfred who sent a card to Ivy.
Daisy wears her maid’s uniform in most of the show, but she dons a lovely pink dress at a servants’ day out at the beach. Get the look of the young kitchen assistant with this Daisy Mason costume guide. Score her pretty look by wearing a Vintage Dress with the Embroidery Patches. You can then accessorize just like Daisy with a Straw Hat and a pair of Women’s Ballet Flats. Complete the picnic ensemble with a Picnic Basket.
Daisy Mason Cosplay Costumes
Because of her job at Downton Abbey, Daisy Mason is usually seen wearing her standard maid uniform. This uniform consists of a dress (mostly in pastel and muted colors) with a white-collar, white apron, and white hat. Her hair is generally pulled up in a bun. Daisy wears minimal to no accessories, and her face is bare, devoid of any makeup. Following her promotion to kitchen assistant, a black uniform became a part of her wardrobe.
Daisy’s lovely look that she had at the picnic can be yours by following this costume set. There’s no need to add anything else. Since Daisy keeps her face bare at work, she may have primped a little for the servants’ day out. So, you should probably add a bit of light makeup to your face—sparse color to your eyebrows, a hint of color on the cheeks and lips, and maybe colored lenses if your eyes are a different color.
About Daisy Mason
Daisy had a tough, dysfunctional childhood. She received only free compulsory education up to the age of 10. She started using an electronic mixer in the kitchen to the displeasure of Mrs. Patmore, who does not trust modern kitchen gadgets. One of the highlights of her character in the show was her love story with William Mason, one of the footmen at Downton Abbey. She couldn’t reciprocate William’s love and devotion for her and was even hesitant to marry William when he was in his deathbed following the war.
She eventually did and became William’s war widow, which he wanted to give Daisy something to fall back on even after his death. Sophie McShera, the English actress who played Daisy, received a Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series.
