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!
