We were invited to a last minute party tomorrow, which calls for a last minute costume! Refinery29 just did a piece on the magical lipstick used in JB’s Sorry music video, & I thought the bold, graphic styles in the video would be fun to wear. Layer it up or strip it down for whatever climate. You probably have everything you need already. Here’s a quick break down of a “Sorry” dancer outfit:
On Top any & all athleisure
On Bottom high waisted
or short shorts
baseball cap, visor, bandanna, or puff buns
gold chain necklace
knee high sock
thick soled shoes

We’re going home for Thanksgiving, so we won’t have a chance to make a full course, holiday meal. That’s been a goal of mine since seeing our apartment’s kitchen. Adulthood! Meal planning! Things that make me feel accomplished in the kitchen, thumbs up.
I’ve only really started getting into cooking since moving up to Chicago, so any recipe I try has to be under 15 ingredients and easy to follow. These recipes aren’t crazy involved, and have complimenting flavors. Plus, they’re festive.

This is M.’s & my first Halloween in the same city, so of course we (I) wanted to do a couple’s costume. The requirements were: it had to be cheap & easy. Digging through our closet to find some base costume elements, I found a pair of scrubs M. wears volunteering. Well, if he was going to be a doctor, I wanted to be the operation game. But not just any operation game, a designer version.
1. Find a nude or black shirt to craft on. I got mine for $10 at H&M, but this can be easily thrifted.
2. Print off & cut out the game pieces. I went with an “x-ray” look instead of classic operation pieces, because finding a black shirt was much, much easier. You can grab the [x-ray pieces here] or [classic look pieces here].
3. Outline your pieces onto the chipboard and cut within the lines. This will ensure the chipboard won’t poke out from behind the printout.
4. Glue the printout pieces to the chipboard, using a plastic card to smooth out any bumps.
5. After the glue is dry, use the velcro dots to attach each piece to your shirt.
Note: If you want to save a few steps & don’t want people ripping off parts of your costume, you could print the pieces directly onto transfer paper.
Double Note: I created all these pieces myself in Illustrator, but if you want different icons, I recommend checking out the Noun Project. The Noun Project is a website where users can upload & share find icons free to use (with attribution credits). You can print these out & make your own custom Operation Costume. Love painting? Print it out and put it over your heart. Cat’s got your tongue? Put this guy over an operation mask. Any easy, personal diy costume.
M. & I are still deciding if we’re hosting anything this Halloween- it’s our first apartment but it’s bit out of the way for people. So instead, here are the diy’s I would be doing for my fantasy party for your crafting pleasures.
