Halloween is coming soon and you wonder “How many more days until Halloween?” Do you want to buy your kids a perfect costumes for their fancy dressing? We know how to help people of all ages have a great Halloween. We suggest you follow these tips when picking out your children’s Halloween costumes.
Choose a Perfect Mask
Masks can be scary for many children, especially those with special needs. If they don’t fit correctly, they can also affect your child’s vision. For your child’s safety, it might be better to use face paint to complete a costume instead of a mask, even if your child’s costume comes with a mask.
Pick the Right Size Costumes
Costumes that are too small can keep your child from moving freely. Costumes that are too big could trip up your little goblin or ghost, causing injuries. Too-big shoes or high-heeled shoes can also increase your child’s risk of injury. Be sure to pick a costume that is right for his/her size.
Choose Fire-Retardant Costumes
Costumes and wigs should be made from fire-retardant materials. These materials are less likely to catch fire and burn out quickly, helping your child stay safe around jack-o-lanterns, candles and other flames. Most costumes should carry a fire-retardant label on the packaging, or you can ask a store associate.
Add Reflective Flare
If your child’s costume doesn’t have reflective parts, you should add some reflective tape or accents that can help your child be visible to motorists in the dark. You can also add reflection to your child’s trick-or-treat bag or purchase glow sticks, light-up accessories or other items to make your child more visible and safe.
No matter which costume you purchase, add a label with your child’s name and your contact information in case you get separated. You can also add contact information to your child’s trick-or-treat bag. Now, most seasonal pop-up Halloween stores also have online retailer extensions and many even offer same or next-day shipping for you to choose and place order.
To sum up, Halloween costumes are great and various now, if everyone around you is in on the joke as well. Make sure you poll a few friends who won't steal your idea! before making any final decisions. Have a happy Halloween!
