For “A Crowd of Demons,” 666 Park Avenue’s special Halloween episode, airing tonight at 10 p.m. EST on ABC, Rachael Taylor’s Jane Van Been dresses up as Tippi Hedren’s Melanie Daniels, the victim in one of Alfred Hitchcock’s most iconic films, The Birds. Her costume—a celadon green wool crepe dress with black birds wired and sewn into it—was the handmade creation of costume designer Caroline Duncan. “This is definitely the scariest episode we’ve made,” Duncan told InStyle.com. “It’s an homage to Hitchcock, the greatest horror filmmaker ever. And what’s happening with Rachel’s costume is very tongue-in-cheek—she’s been haunted by birds ever since she moved into the building.” The costume is the result fastening and readjusting the birds to sit just right on Rachael’s frame. “Once the dress was done, we played with a lot of styles and sizes of birds,” Duncan said. “The birds are actually lawn decorations from Pottery Barn! We spent a lot of time manipulating them; they all come in one shape, and we sort of tweaked the wings.” Fun fact: The bird on her wrist, Duncan told us, actually doubles as a handbag! Tune in tonight to see the amazing costume in action!

On tonight’s brand-new episode of Revenge, Victoria Grayson comes face to face with Kara, Emily Thorne’s mother, for the first time in years. And because the drama’s most pivotal moments usually call for some seriously chic outfits (remember the July 4th Gala?), we caught up with the show’s costume designer, Jill Ohanneson, to get the scoop. “Victoria and Kara are an interesting contrast costume-wise in their scenes together as they circle each other with Emily watching their every move,” she told InStyle.com. Ohanneson also says to pay close attention to Victoria’s wardrobe choices. “Victoria style is very feline and sensual and she is almost always in control, so her costumes need to reflect that in the way they fit and also how they reveal or conceal,” she said. “The colors and textures of her outfits also play a big part in setting the mood for a particular scene.” As if we needed another reason to keep our eyes glued on the ice queen!
