An Aire-Head’s Guide to Last Minute Halloween Costumes

October 31st, 2011 by Amber

Everyone here at NICE Creative and Life to the Max seemed to procrastinate over creating a Halloween costume this year.

But after being forced to wear the Cone of Shame following a minor medical procedure, I inspired the staff to use the cone to create some last-minute Halloween costumes.

With just a few basic pieces, you can turn the cone into your very own tutu. Here’s Kim doing her very best Black Swan imitation.

Or you can use it to make a bonnet. Terry is such a cute baby. Kitchee-coo!

You can also use the cone as a barber’s cape and recreate a scene from Sweeney Todd. Kim & Robin team up for some hair-raising fun!

Of course, the cone makes a perfect lamp shade. Here’s Kim doing her best impression of a table lamp. What a shining example of employee loyalty!

The cone is also useful if you want to strike a pose as Queen Nefertiti. Note the flashy golden necklace that Robin wears of Hershey’s chocolate wrappers and her daring snake handling ability.

Do you have any ideas of how to turn your cone of shame into a last-minute costume? Send us your pictures and we’ll post them on our blog! Hope your Halloween is filled with a cone-voluted sense of humor!

Life to the Max Book Now Available on Kindle & Nook

October 11th, 2011 by Robin Reynolds

We have learned a lot about publishing ebooks over the past few months and now despite some of the challenges with formatting a book like ours, you will now find Life to the Max: Maxims for a Great Life by a Dog named Max in both Amazon Kindle and Barnes & Noble Nook formats.

In this initial offering, we made the decision to make the text resizable, which means a lot of the beautiful graphic treatment that exists in our hardcover version had to be reduced. That is why we are offering the ebook versions at the very low price of just $2.99. We would love to hear what your experiences are, so please send us your comments. Is the advantage of being able to make the type any size you like more important than seeing the book as it was originally designed?

As you know, this is a field that is rapidly changing, so there are always opportunities to grow and improve. Let us know if you would prefer a fixed page layout where you would not be able to adjust the type size or format, but the design looks the same as the hardcover. Happy downloading!
