TAKE ME BACK TUESDAY....1963 Alfred Hitchcock's "The Birds"

I am taking you back to 2010 when I was Tippi Hedren of Alfred Hitchcocks horror film of 1963 "the Birds".

All thrifted except for the feathers and birds...found those at A.C. Moore craft store.  I used the photo above to transform myself into Tippi.  I am so dramatic but it was neccessary for the part.

I simply hot glued feathers and birds to the dress and wig.  Then I  dripped some vampire fake blood  strategically to the  clothing and my face simulating that the birds were pecking me to death....peckers!!!

Stunned and in shock from the random but deliberate attack...I am vigilant of the my surroundings....

Oh Noooooo....here they come againnnnn!  What will you be this year???? Do you like me as a blonde with short hair?

I saw that movie in high school and couldn't sleep for WEEKS. Hitchcock was brilliant. I love his stuff.

M for Murder is pretty awesome too.

I really like you as a blonde- it completely tranforms your look! What a fun and unique costume- I'm still figuring out who (or what) I'll be for Halloween!

Wow, you did some great poses in this post. You look like an actress for sure. That move scared me and I still have moments of fear when I see way too many birds swarming around.
This is a spectacular costume. I don't think I have ever seen one like it.


what a fantastic costume! these pictures made me giggle. i'm loving all of your dramatic faces and poses. mr. hitchcock would be proud.
