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!

Bouncy Good Time!
Last year was a great year for me. I got married in September, and am loving this new adventure! Our wedding day turned out just the way we wanted. It was perfect. Although my wedding day was the best day of my life, we ended up having a pretty great time the night before as well. My husband and I are both pretty laid-back, casual people. So the night before, instead of having a formal dinner or a fancy rehearsal party or reception, we ended up just having a big bash with family and friends at my parents house. I dont think many people can say that they had a huge bouncy slide, snow cone machine, and childrens bouncy castle at their wedding party! But we did, and it was a blast! Although people ended up with sore muscles, plastic burns, and scuffed knees, everyone sure had a great time and I wouldn't have changed it for anyth...
Lifetime Products on Your Smartphone or Tablet
Back when I was a kid, my Dad asked me to look at some computer specs and "pick the one we wanted". He was a very frugal man and told me to make sure it would "last me though college". That was probably a bit naive, but neither of us knew any better.Today I have a "computer" with a much faster processor, more RAM, more storage space, and a significantly faster Internet connection -- it fits in my pocket and I call it a "smartphone". It really is amazing, the technology that we take for granted. Here at Lifetime Products, we've always used technology to solve problems -- not just because it's "cool" -- though a lot of it is really, really cool! Such is the case with smartphones and tablets! If you have an iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, or Windows Phone 7 we have an app for you! Our apps put our information about all our products ...
The Wonderful World of Sit-Inside Kayaks!
This kayak season we are stepping up our game! Exciting right? Most people have seen our many sit-on-top and fishing models, but this year we have gone in a whole new direction! I would like to introduce our newest member of the kayak family, the Lifetime Payette 116! This is our first sit-inside kayak design and it is sure to knock your water socks off! It comes in at 98 and is has the perfect mix of stability and speed.The sleek design makes it a bit faster than other kayaks that are similar in length without compromising the stability you are accustom to in a Lifetime Kayak! Think best of both worlds: speed of a longer kayak, stability of a shorter kayak. The built -n seat and seat back make it comfortable while the molded-in carry handles make for easy transport. Need to take some snacks with you on your paddle? The Paye...
