The other day I was looking through old posts of mine and discovered that I was doing recreations inspired by classic films/tv shows long before I realized I was doing recreations. Back in 2012 I did a photo shoot at the Flushing Meadow Park where the World's Fair took place in 1964. In keeping with the Halloween spirit I channeled my inner Melanie Daniels from The Birds (1963).

Tippi Hedren's portrayal of Melanie Daniels is an iconic staple in the horror genre.  Draped in high fashion by the great Edith Head, Melanie soon finds herself on island where the birds have decided to attack humans. 

It's been such fun to look back at ten years of posts and realize there are some really cool things I have done and experienced. This shoot was one of my favorite ones to put together. If you are interested in dressing up as Melanie Daniels from The Birds (1963), here is some Halloween costume inspiration.
