Last Minute Homemade Lifetime Halloween Costumes

A few days ago we helped my son Nathan make his first homemade Halloween costume.  I’m embarrassed to admit, but this is the first year we have fully embraced the fun and festivities and attempted a homemade costume.  I’ve always wanted to, but normally Nathan has always eyed something in the store that he really wanted to be like Elmo, a spider etc. (except last year when he wanted to wear his own flight suit to be a fighter pilot like Daddy!).  And, it just made things a lot easier anyway. 

This year Nathan is really into Disney’s Wall-E, and robots in general. So, we made our own robot.  First, we spray painted two rectangular boxes with silver metallic paint.  Next, we cut the bottom out of the “body” box, and we also cut a head hole and arm holes.  In the smaller “head” box, we cut out a big rectangle for his face to poke through. Then it was time for the creativity and imagination of a 5-year-old to take over.  Naturally, every robot must have lights.  So, I covered some of those Stick 'N Click lights with colored plastic wrap to make red and blue lights. (Best use I've found for those things yet!)  Nathan added some pipe cleaners for antennas; old caps for eyes; and stickers, nuts and washers for control panels etc.  I must admit, it turned out really cute and I can honestly say I think it’s one of my favorite costumes so far!

But, the whole homemade costume idea got me thinking.  I wonder if anyone has every tried to be a Lifetime product for Halloween.  Sure enough, after just a few quick Google searches, I came up with some creative ways to be a table or basketball hoop for Halloween! 

So here are the links I found to a few ideas for you if you’re crazy about Lifetime, tables, or basketball.  Some are cute (like the one in the photo above), some are scary... but, all of them are pretty funny and creative.  Of course, I’d add one other small detail to your costume that these people skipped…the Lifetime logo!  :)  Seriously, if you do dress up as a Lifetime product, send us a picture, we’d love to see it and post it on our blog!

Lifetime Chairs at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade
Did you know that an estimated 2.5 million people go to the Macys Thanksgiving Day Paradein New York City each year? Thats roughly twice the population of Hawaii, and all these people are standing on the same street in New York City at the same time to watch the parade. Thats a lot of people all hoping to get front row spots for the festivities! Because theres such limited front-row space, people show up 3 or 4 hours before the parade starts to get the best views, which means a lot of time standing and waiting. This year, to make the morning more relaxing, we decided to bring Lifetime Chairs to some of these people who were anticipating the start of the parade. That way, they could have a comfortable place to sit and rest their feet while getting a great view of all the floats, dancers and balloons. All the people who sat in...
A Game You Can “Settle” On
With The Holidays fast approaching, I want to share another reason to pull out that Lifetime Card Table and Folding Chairs and gather family and friends together near the fireplace. I would like to recommend another board game called The Settlers of Catan.The Settlers of Catan, which originated in Germany, is surprisingly light and enjoyable in its first play.Players take on the role of immigrants onthe newly discovered island of Catan. The game board is obviously different. It is comprised of several hexagonal tiles randomly arranged into the shape of a large hexagon. Since the tiles will almost certainly be arranged differently for every game, each game will be different. Each tile represents a particular resource such as wood, brick, sheep, ore, or wheat. Each turn, a roll of the two dice determines which hexes produce res...
