Be Seen, Be Safe, Be Fun: Creative Costume Tips for a Safe Halloween

August 25, 2017

Halloween, All Hallows’ Eve, is a fun and eventful time of the year that we all look forward to—bringing to mind playful memories of carving jack-o’-lanterns, dressing up in costumes, and trick-or-treating. But it’s also a time that introduces a certain degree of spookiness.

From scary silhouettes of witches on brooms flying past the moon to black cats, our image of Halloween is spooky. But beyond the ghoulish nature and mystique of Halloween, its nighttime backdrop introduces dangers that necessitate taking appropriate precautions to keep your children safe on Halloween. That doesn’t mean, however, that Halloween can’t still be fun! Read on for some tips about how to incorporate visibility into your children’s trick-or-treating ensembles this Halloween.  

 Be Seen Be Safe

Be Seen, Be Safe

While we all can agree that a night of trick-or-treating is loads of fun for kids, it’s important to remember that walking around in the dark introduces certain risks. Obvious ways to keep your kids lit is having them wear  long-lasting safety glow sticks or carry an LED flashlight. But there are more creative ways to incorporate similar brightness into your children’s costumes that you’ll be comfortable with and that they’ll love!


Plan a Bright Halloween Costume   

Making sure your kids are visible on Halloween night isn’t as difficult as you may think; all you need is a little creativity! Creating a costume that incorporates visibility can be just as fun, if not more fun, than creating any other Halloween costume. Whatever your child’s preferred costume is, accessorizing it with fun LED light-up products can keep you both happy—they’ll love the cool glow of their costume that’s sure to make their friends jealous, and you’ll love that you can clearly see them walk from your car to each doorstep.  Brighten up your kid’s entire costume, from head to toe! Illuminate their headwear, whether they want to wear a hat, a wig, or a simple headband or crown; you can even accent their natural hairstyle with an LED hair accessory.


An LED face mask is as functional as it is spooky. Similarly, an LED scarf can help keep your kids warm as night temperatures drop off, while keeping them illuminated brightly. Don’t forget to keep their hands warm while also brightly lit! To add some creative, stylish color, try adding a pair of light-up suspenders, a tie, an LED pumpkin or skull necklace, or a light-up tutu for the little ladies!


Our glow products are also quite extensive and can be explored for costume-planning, whether you’re looking for glow costume accessories (such as glow glasses, glow headbands, glow earrings, glow bracelets, glow necklaces, and glow masks) or for fun and nontoxic glow paint.


Let Them Be Kids with Fun, Kid-Friendly LED Products

Let’s not forget that Halloween is about letting your kids be kids. But merging safety and fun is an easy fix—they’re sure to love the must-have LED light-up toys, whatever their style, whether LED weapons (such as swords, sabers, and guns), LED wands, or even foam light up Lumitons.


You can search our extensive glow products if you’d like to look for additional glow wands and weapons to accompany your kids’ costumes or are interested in good old fashioned glow sticks—rest assured your kids will be seen with our LED and glow products!


From all of us, we hope these tips have been helpful, and we wish you a happy and safe Halloween!
