Most Unique Halloween Costumes

This costume I made for my 12 year old daughter. The costume consists of a women's business suit, a straw hat and about 6-7 black scary crows. She had said that she wanted to be something scary but still original and this is what we came up with.

Costume Instructions
This costume was more difficult then I had anticipated. Keeping the birds from falling over was most challenging. I had to cut out a vest made of cardboard and then staple this to the inside of the jacket, between the lining and the fabric. I cut very small holes in the fabric of the costume,between the fabric and the cardboard, big enough to insert the feet of the birds. I then used a great deal of hot glue to secure the birds to the cardboard inside the suit. The hat was not very hard, I just glued the one of the birds to the top. I had to make a tie around the neck of the hat however to keep the hat from falling off. The blood was used on the face and ahnds to look as if the birds were attacking.
