DIY Hershey’s Kiss Costume Tutorial

My first installment of my Halloween costume series is a very cute, very fluffy Hershey’s Kiss bubble dress!

Halloween Costume Tutorial Series

As September draws to a close, it’s time to start thinking about Halloween! Halloween is hands down my favorite holiday.  Whether my costume was frightening, beautiful, or scandalous, nobody could judge me because Halloween gave me the freedom to be whatever I wanted.  As a high schooler, this really meant a lot; on this one day, the critical eyes of my classmates and the regimented dress code couldn’t touch me.  Because Halloween is such an exciting day for me, I’ll be uploading a weekly Halloween costume series to share my excitement with you!  The tutorials will range from beginner to advanced, so all skill levels are welcome.  I have various costumes planned, but if you have any requests, please feel free to let me know!

Happy costuming, guys!
