Best Jack Halloween Costume Guide
The original 1964 film of Mary Poppins was such a huge success, Disney decided to make a sequel. The 2018 film, Mary Poppins Returns, follows Mary Poppins as she comes back once more to help the Banks children. Instead of her chimney sweeping friend, Bert, we are instead introduced to her friend Jack who is a lamplighter. He is played by Lin-Manuel Miranda and is the perfect sidekick to the fun-loving nanny. Through more singing, dancing, and maybe a spoonful or two of sugar, Mary Poppins and Jack bring back all the magic from the first movie.
Jack is an optimistic lamplighter who was apprenticed under Bert. His childlike and kind nature lends itself to the fun adventures he has with Mary Poppins and the Banks children. If you want to get the look of this friendly lamplight Jack, you will need a Gatsby Newsboy Hat, Corduroy Pinstripe Blazer, Bandana, Off-White Shirt, Blue Striped Shirt, Red Vest, Cotton Striped Trousers, Brown Boots, Brown Fingerless Gloves, and a Walking Stick.
Jack Cosplay Costumes
Although we can’t forget the iconic look Dick Van Dyke brought us in the first movie of Mary Poppins, this is a fun change for cosplayers who want to try Jack’s new look on for size. As he is a lamplighter and not a chimney sweep, he is certainly a lot cleaner than Bert. Jack also introduces a bit more color in his outfit, bringing out his fun and childlike nature. His outfit is presentable, yet playful, and is practical for any magical adventures he may stumble upon. You will certainly be ready for lamp lighting duties and fun adventures with an outfit like Jack’s.
Mary Poppins certainly shouldn’t have all the fun. Why not see if she is free for afternoon tea and a walk in the park. You are sure to stumble upon some magical adventure. If you think your costumes are the best, don’t forget to submit some photos to our Halloween Costume Contest!
