Every year I oversee our annual DIY costume shoot, and I’m not exaggerating when I say it’s the most fun day of the year here at Camille Styles. The process leading up to the shoot is fairly intense for me, and I’ve definitely been known to have a few stress meltdowns in the weeks prior to the actual shoot day! This year I thought it would be fun to document this insane process from start to finish and share it with you here on the blog. I think you’ll get a taste of how much fun it really is to work for Camille (and just how serious I can get when it comes to Halloween!). Let us know what you think of the video in the comments thread, and if you’d like to see more BTS videos about what we do. Happy Halloween!
Oh! And be sure and watch all the way to the end of the video for our special announcement.
