Costume Contest Entries 2012 #1

The entries for the Couture Allure Halloween Costume Contest are starting to trickle in!  Want to win a $50 gift certificate?  Here are the full details and contest rules.

In a mind-boggling bit of serendipity, 3 of the entries so far are ladies who took their inspiration from Tippi Hedron's character in "The Birds."  The first time that film came to television, my sister and I begged our mom to let us stay up and watch it.  After what must have been hours of whining, nagging and moaning, mom finally relented.  I had nightmares for a week and I still can't watch that movie!

1.  Melissa C. carried a vintage purse.  She studied and duplicated the actual make-up from the film.

2.  Sheila from the blog Ephemera.  Her hat and gloves are vintage.

3.  Pamela wore her mom's 1950s mink stole as part of her costume.

Contest entrant #15, Sue sent along pictures from her Tippi Hedron costume she wore several years ago.  Everything is vintage and Sue made 4 costume changes throughout the day following the progression of the movie.  Ummm, I want that green purse!!!!!!
