Bird Box’s Malorie: DIY Cosplay
In the hit Netflix film ‘Bird Box’, Malorie Hayes (played by Sandra Bullock) has experienced enough trauma for several lifetimes. We meet her as a pregnant, single mother whose sister takes her own life during a spreading epidemic mass-suicide, and see her all the way through to safety with her two children “Boy” and “Girl.”
Her journey down the river is a challenging one—keeping enough resources in a canoe constantly threatening to capsize while you’re blindfolded isn’t easy. Why the blindfold? Well because if you see it, you kill yourself.
