FashionEarsta Reviews a Dapper Mary Poppins Fascinator from HATerrific on Etsy!
My sweet friend Linda is a HUGE Disney fan who, despite visiting the parks many times, had never done a DisneyBounding look before! We decided that we just had to put together a matching look, and she requested something dapper. Of course the first thing that I do when planning an outfit is to go and look at what ears are available, and when we found this Mary Poppins Jolly Holliday Mini Hat from HATeriffic on Etsy, we knew we’d found our character inspiration!
We had the best time twirling in our skirts and enjoying the Magic Kingdom! I did accidentally tell a Cast Member who complimented the outfit that I didn’t need to go visit Mary Poppins in Epcot because “I brought my own Mary Poppins” and he definitely thought I had kidnapped someone. Oops!
My favorite part of Linda’s Mary Poppins bound (other than the lovely person wearing it) was definitely the adorable mini hat!
Here’s what the mini hat looks like in real life:
MARY POPPINS FASCINATOR REVIEW
What We Loved
This fascinator is instantly recognizable as a reproduction of Mary Poppins’ hat. The red and white colors really POP! It’s a good way to transform any red and white outfit into a Mary Poppins DisneyBound.
This mini hat is tiny but mighty. Since it’s mostly air and ruffle, there isn’t much weight to it, and once it’s clipped into your hair it stays put and is easy to forget about. We didn’t test it on any roller coasters, but it’s definitely secure enough that you wouldn’t have to remove it for most non-thrill rides at Disney!
The hat itself is made of airy, woven material! The ruffle and bow are crisp and starch, just like Mary Poppins’ perfectly-pressed Jolly Holiday ensemble!
This fascinator obviously doesn’t have a headband, but the shop owners do give you the choice between 2 alligator clips (pictured) or a thin white headband. If you (or your littles) have finer hair or don’t want clips, the headband might be the way to go!
The stitching on the ruffle is exposed but neat, and no evidence of hot glue.
I love how prim and proper this bow is! And, the tiny rosette on the corner of the bow is amazing!
This came in a sturdy box with plenty of padding and its own tiny bag! We also loved that it came with personalized care instructions – the magical experience started as soon as we opened the box!
This mini hat is perfectly sized for an adult head, but if you’re planning on buying it for a kiddo just be aware that it will be larger in relation to their head and the clips might be a bit harder to place.
We ordered these in mid-January and they arrived at the very beginning of March.
We paid $30.00 plus shipping for this hat, which is cheaper than a pair of Loungefly-branded ears in Orlando! We definitely think that it’s worth the price.
Who would love these?
FashionEarstas who love Dapper Day and being generally “extra” at the parks! This is also great for younger FashionEarstas who might not love wearing constricting ear headbands, since the clips are comfortable!

What Needs Work
NOTHING! Can you believe it? I’m usually a much pickier reviewer than this, but this mini-hat is practically perfect in every way!
Where should future FashionEarstas be seen in these ears?
Definitely visit the UK Pavilion at Epcot, where you can meet Mary Poppins in the tea garden! Or if you’re at Magic Kingdom, catch Mary and Bert in their Jolly Holiday costumes dancing in the new Adventure Friends cavalcade.
Overall Score: (5/5)
I love this little fascinator so much that I’m giving it a rare perfect score! It’s comfy, well-made, unique, and versatile enough that you can wear it for an everyday look or a Dapper Day DisneyBound! Definitely check out HATerrific – they have so many other adorable mini-hats and headbands for various characters!
