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!

Product Launch: Lifetime Wheelbarrows
Every home owner with a yard or garden to take care of can attest to the necessity of a quality wheelbarrow. Event the ancient Greeks and Chinese, and medieval Europeans knew the value of having a solid, reliable wheelbarrow.1 Wheelbarrows haven’t changed much over the years. Lifetime Products thought it was about time someone challenged that. Lifetime took the design of the traditional contractor’s wheelbarrow, studied it to find out what its shortcomings were, then reinvented it. The result? The Lifetime Wheelbarrow (65011), which gives you superior stability, added maneuverability, and thanks to a re-engineered center-of-gravity and pivot point it lightens your workload by an amazing 85%. Lifetime wheelbarrows: yard work made easy.

Where to Find Lifetime Tables
We often have consumers ask where they can find Lifetime tables in their area. The simple answer is at most every major retailer! But, here is general list: Sam's Club, Costco Wholesale, BJ's Wholesale, Lowe's, Walmart, Kmart, Shopko, and a variety of regional retailers. However, some of you who have been in some of these stores may not have been able to find Lifetime branded tables. You may have seen a table that looked like a Lifetime folding table and wondered if it really was a Lifetime table. Although most of our tables are sold with the Lifetime brand loud and proud, a few of our retail partners sell our product under their in-store private label brand. To help you find a Lifetime table next time you are out shopping, here's a quick list of some of the private label names that our Lifetime tables have: Mainstays - at...
