The Birds Melanie Daniels Do It Yourself Costume

Looking for a fun, easy, slightly spooky Do it yourself Halloween costume?  Why not take your turn playing the iconic San Francisco Aristocrat Melanie Daniels from Alfred Hitchcock’s The Birds!  Easy, and affordable here are all of the pieces you’ll need (you probably have most of them already!




Start off by raiding your closet for a classic peacoat or trench coat as the base for your costume.  Pair it with a flared skirt or some smart skinny jeans and flats if your taking the kids trick or treating.  I found this Hailey Jeans Co Juniors Double Breasted Wool Peacoat for$29.99 which you can wear again and again all winter long.





Now it’s off to Dollar Tree to pick up some of these great fake crows!  They have wire on their feet so you can attach them fairly easily to an old coat…Don’t want to to ruin your coat by poking holes in it?  You can easily attach the birds to a wool or fuzzy style coat by attacing the rough side of a velcro strip on each bird’s feet or use two sided tape to teporarily adhere the birds.





Last but no least grab a headband, I love this Gold Glitter Sports Headband One Size$4.53 + FREE Shipping from Amazon, and attach a bird to it.
