Ain’t No Party Like a Sharpie PARTY ‘cuz a Sharpie Party Don’t Stop!
My best friend is a Kansas native with a New York state of mind! She has always had a style that is all her own. Let me paint you a little picture…if you were to take a peak inside her closet you would most definitely find pretty party dresses, a pair of skull and cross-bone embroidered shorts, several oxfords and polos, a couple pairs of Sperry topsiders, neon sunglasses, a cowboy hat, a fedora, oh and I can’t forget to mention the legendary gold, leather bomber jacket!
My bi-polar dressing, Wichita bestie, Jolie, is making her dreams come true today. Leaving the comforts of home, she moved to New York about 2 months after graduation and is now living in a super chic apartment, (muahaha she will enjoy that comment) working for fashion designer, Yumi Kim and is in the process of enrolling in design courses at F.I.T.
(I like to give a hearty background description; it gives a better visual)
The reason I bring her up is that since living in NYC it seems that she is always going to fun theme parties, that I would never even think of (and boy do I LOVE a good theme party)! One party in particular was a graphic T-shirt party. Really easy concept: (so easy a caveman could do it) Everyone wears their fav graphic T! Of course, the soiree was fun for Jolie and her party-going friends and better yet, you didn’t know who was going to walk in the door next wearing what T Shirt!
So this got me thinking, WHAT AN EASY PARTY TO THROW. And with Sharpie in mind, why not make your own T-shirt and save a couple bucks!? This is an inexpensive way to be original, wear EXACTLY what you want and put your creative mind to use thinking up a clever phrase and design.
What you will need:
1) a T-shirt or tank top (obviously)
2) an assortment of Sharpie markers
3) a newspaper OR piece of cardboard to put inside your shirt to prevent the ink from bleeding through to the other side.
NOTE: Once I made my friend a shirt with a Sharpie Magnum about 5 mins. before the party started and I think he almost suffocated because the fumes were so strong (sorry Scott)! Moral of the story, you may want to design your T a day or two before the party, or try using Sharpie Paint Markers, (love) just to be on the safe side.
Alright you FUN-HAVERS, go make your T shirts, throw the party, take pictures and let me know how it goes! —Uncap What’s Inside!!
