Bird Flu

By Marie

In 2008, I thought it would be fun to be the pandemic known as “bird flu.” I put together a simple nurse costume with a white button-up shirt, a white skirt, a red tank top, knee socks, and a nurse’s hat, which you can find at any Halloween shop. I bought some fake birds from Michaels, drew Xs over their eyes, poured fake blood on them, and glued them to my costume. I found a little bird’s nest at Michaels as well, filled it with pills, and wore it as a brooch.
