MARY is joined by her cousin, Topsy Tart­let, played by Os­car win­ner Meryl Streep, right.

She has a fix-it shop in which ev­ery­thing, from grand pi­anos to china and stat­ues, turns up­side down on a Tues­day.

Topsy even sings her song Turn­ing Tur­tle up­side down from a chan­de­lier.

Topsy’s cos­tume — in­spired by Bo­hemian poet Edith Sitwell — was based on some Twen­ties vin­tage py­ja­mas and a ki­mono. Artists hand-painted the ma­te­rial with Art Deco pat­terns of orange, pink, turquoise and yel­low.

To com­plete the look, Streep asked for an orange wig cut into a bob, topped off with a green tur­ban and cur­tain tassles for ear­rings.
