This Halloween, masquerade as an oldies crooner

While clicking around for Halloween costume ideas, I stumbled on this great (and easy!) DIY craft that transforms old record sleeves into awesome masks. The best part is that it only requires scissors, string, a pencil, and a record sleeve with a to-scale human face (easily purchased at a local used record store, if collecting vinyl isn’t your thing). Check out the simple steps and get your craft on!

Elmer Krose spotted this unique caravan apartment complex in Amsterdam. I don’t know whether I’d want to live in this permanently, but it’d be sick to rent out for a week with a bunch of friends. Oh and fun fact I just learned: Mokum is a nickname still used for Amsterdam. It’s Yiddish for safe haven.
