Not sure what to be for Halloween yet? Here’s a last minute costume that’s easy to pull together and totally awesome: Melanie Daniels (as played by Tippi Hedren) in Alfred Hitchcock’s The Birds.

My friend Erin went as this one year, then I stole the costume from her a few years later (right after baby was born and I hadn’t quite pulled myself together yet). It took about three minutes to get the elements together and I had a great response at our annual halloween bash. This year my friend Anna (mom of adorable Niko that you’ve seen featured on Prudent Baby before) asked to borrow the get-up, so I forced her to pose for pictures as payment. All you need is an old dress, a blonde wig done up 60′s style (or your own hair), and some dollar store black birds.  Stick a few in your hair…

Glue a few to your dress…

Accessorize with some drips of fake blood (or a lip liner works just as well) and act spooked out all night long!

Think you might give it a try?
