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!

Kokanee Tandem: You've never seen a kayak like this before!
At Lifetime, Commitment, Innovation, and Quality, is more than just a slogan, it is a way of doing business! We are constantly working to take our kayaks to the next level, above and beyond what is already out there. We take suggestions and advice from you, the people who use our kayaks, and incorporate that into our designs. After a lot of hard work weve come up with a kayak that is like nothing youve ever seen!I would like to introduce our brand new tandem kayak, the Kokanee!

Keeping Kids’ Safety in Mind
Spring is in the air―at least here in Utah. The neighborhood is slowly coming back to life as kids and their parents are reemerging from their indoor hibernation. Time to find the bicycle pump and rollerblade knee pads because, at last, the kids can go outside and play! With the comeback of Spring also comes a greater need for drivers to be aware of the little ones out and about. To this end, Lifetime is introducing a new product this season, the Child Alert sign. This unique sign is shaped like a small child chasing after a soccer ball. Chucky, as we affectionately refer to him, is bright construction orange and carries a sign that says slow. His base is made similar to the portable bases that Lifetime made famous with our basketball systems, and can be filled with water or sand for even more stability. If youre like me, ...
