Costumes For Girls – Two Big Tips Before You Buy
As a mother of three, I can’t tell you how much my kids get upset when it comes to a costume party. For my young girls, they want to wear all the fancy dresses they see on TV or in the movies. But let’s be honest, we don’t want our young girls to dress like prostitutes, do we?
When you buy a costume for your girl, remember that what may be popular on TV may not necessarily be appropriate for her age. Let me give you an example. A few years ago, when Brittney Spears had a popular music video on TV (which aired at least eight or nine times a day), all the girls wanted to wear the same schoolgirl costume that Brittney wore in her now-infamous music video. But this is not necessarily suitable for their kindergarteners.
I’m sure there will be a run on anything that looks like a crazy Lady Gaga costume this year. Just remember to ask yourself this question: Is this costume right for my 5-year-old? (Or regardless of the age of your little girl).
My other great advice before buying a costume is to make sure you buy a costume that is safe for your child. First, the material should be fire retardant. There is no such thing as a “flame-resistant” costume, but read the packaging of the costume you want to buy. Make sure the packaging contains a warning that the costume is flame-resistant. There are many candles, pumpkins, pumpkin lanterns, and the like that can easily set a costume on fire if you are not careful. To avoid burns or serious injury, make sure your child’s costume is at least flame or fire-resistant.
Also, for safety reasons, make sure the costume fits your child correctly. You want your child to be able to see almost perfectly outside of his or her disguise, and you do not want anything to hang or catch on something that could catch on something and cause your child to trip and fall.
Finally, if your child is going to wear a black or very dark costume, be sure to buy some glow sticks, a light chain, or other reflective devices so your child can be seen in the headlights of oncoming traffic. If you can’t find these items, get an inexpensive flashlight, and make sure your child uses it all night.
Halloween and costume parties are part of the great fun of growing up, and even as adults, we let our imaginations run wild and put on a good costume. But there’s no reason not to think about the health, safety, and well-being of our children at the same time. So make sure you buy a costume that is age-appropriate and has all the safety features to keep your child safe while having fun at Halloween or at a costume party.
