The Lifeguard costume is a playful and versatile choice that allows you to embody the spirit of a beachfront hero while adding a fun twist to your Halloween celebrations. The costume typically consists of several key elements, each contributing to the overall lifeguard aesthetic.

  1. Lifeguard Shirt: The centerpiece of the costume is a bright and recognizable lifeguard shirt. These shirts are typically made of vibrant colors like red, yellow, or orange, often featuring the word “Lifeguard” emblazoned across the front or back. The shirt serves as the foundation of the costume and immediately conveys the lifeguard theme.
  2. Shorts or Swimsuit: To complement the lifeguard shirt, a pair of matching shorts or a swimsuit is usually worn. Opt for bold, solid colors that coordinate with the shirt. This choice adds authenticity to your lifeguard ensemble and helps create a cohesive look.
  3. Whistle and Lifeguard Accessories: No lifeguard costume is complete without a whistle, a quintessential tool of authority and attention. Attach a whistle to a lanyard and wear it around your neck for an authentic touch. Additionally, consider adding other lifeguard-inspired accessories such as a visor, sunglasses, or a lifeguard buoy. These accessories enhance the overall look and provide a fun, interactive element to your costume.
  4. Sunscreen and First Aid Kit: For an extra touch of realism, carry a small bottle of sunscreen and a miniature first aid kit with you. This attention to detail adds authenticity to your lifeguard persona and showcases your dedication to safety, even during the Halloween festivities.

The Lifeguard costume offers a refreshing and heroic twist to traditional Halloween attire. By embodying the spirit of a lifeguard, you bring a unique combination of vibrant colors, beach-themed accessories, and a sense of responsibility to the Halloween celebration. Whether you’re attending a costume party or accompanying children on their trick-or-treating adventures, this costume is sure to make a splash and stand out from the crowd. So, dive into the lifeguard spirit this Halloween and let your heroic alter ego shine!

Lifeguards Before the Dance

This is Jackson and his date, Natallia, before the Sadie Hawkins dance at Timpview High School. They were supposed to go in costume so they and a group of friends went as lifeguards (funny because Jackson dresses like that all the time for work). I had Jackson and Natallia pose in front of a green screen and then used Photoshop to try and transport them to a beach in Santa Monica. Wish I was better at this Photoshop stuff. What a challenge to make the combined picture look authentic and get the lighting right in the foreground and background. Lots more practice needed but I think they were happy with the result and they had a good time. Oh, and Happy 18th birthday, Jackson.

During one of my walks along the beach I was asked to take a few photos of these two young lifeguards. Was very happy to do so and decided to publish one. Theirs is a job often taken for granted. They don't have any sophisticated equipment at their disposal, but I have seen them in action and their dedication is to be admired. This photo is one in the series of photos that I dedicate to them and their job.
