Homemade Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds Costume

Homemade Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds Costume

I wanted to think of something original, that if I went to the bar I wouldn't see at least three of me walking around. Originally I wanted to be an airline stewardess that had got in a plane crash, and not survived. But then I watched the movie The Birds. And I thought how easy to make an Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds Costume!

First I went to my local thrift store and bought the closest green skirt and jacket outfit I could find. Yes, they didn't match, but I thought people would get the idea. Then a black and white feather boa, which I ripped to shreds to hot glue them onto my outfit. I took scissors and ripped holes into the outfit, so that it looked like I got "pecked" at.

Next touch was to find fake birds, I was thinking small ones at first, and luckily I came across some black crows. I thought attaching those would be tricky, but I ripped out there legs, and again with the hot glue gun, just attached them to the outfit. The most expensive part was I had to buy a blonde wig, since my hair was red.

I added a bandage to my head, and a little bit of blood, and I'm Tippy from The Birds!

After seeing the attic scene in the movie Alfred Hitchcock's "The Birds", I thought that would be the the most awesome costume for my sister to wear this year.

I began with an old dress w/matching jacket. Used a knife to shred certain areas that were wounded in the movie. I used red paint so the material would get stiff where the wounds were and then put fake blood liquid gel to make the dripping effect. I painted the birds black and their beaks and eyes red, glued a few black feathers here and there.

I used wire from the birds to attach through the material on the jacket and she made wrist bands out of hair ties for the wrist birds. Used a lip liner and red paint for wounds on her face , neck and legs.

This do it yourself "The Birds" movie Halloween costume cost about $15.00 to make. The reactions from people were priceless, she was so the hit of the party.

"The Birds" Costume Idea was so cool & easy! Tippi Hedren from Alfred Hitchcock's "The Birds". I searched thrift stores for the perfect 60's dress suit (it was green in the movie, But black & white, so any color will do). I went to the craft stores and dollar stores early fall and bought as many crows as I could find. Also some random smaller birds for the hair.

I attached the birds with wire to the suit and blond wig. I was heavy on the powder makeup and wore false eyelashes of course. For the finishing touches bloody peck marks on my face with costume blood.

This costume was a hit! People instantly knew I was Tippi from "The Birds" and I won most original costume at the party I was at.

Homemade Tippi and Hitch Costumes from the Birds

The Birds - Tippi and Hitch

The Birds - Tippi and Hitch

Old-movie fans that we are, we decided to go as actress Tippi Hedren (as Melanie Daniels) and director Alfred Hitchcok from The Birds. Melanie's costume is a Chanel-type suit in a green color with a thin waist belt, white gloves, a blonde wig, scars and blood (corn syrup with red food coloring), torn hose, and fake crows sewn onto the suit and wig. Hitch's costume is made of a stuffed traditional black suit and skinny tie, balding wig, makeup to enhance his big lips, and a movie director's clap board. We sent the picture to Tippi Hedren herself and she loved it!
