Believe it or not, there are in fact scarier things than witches, goblins, and ghosts parading through your neighborhood—one of them being the cold (and its ability to sneak up on you). It’s easy to get caught up in the fun of it all and not realize your body’s signals of needing proper insulation. Keep your wits about you as you embark on your trick or treat adventures with our tips below, get cozy in our Men’s and Women’s long sleeve tees and pants or leggings, and have some skele-fun!
A Haunting We Will Go
Before you set out in search of candy treasure, make sure to plan your route in advance, mateys! Stick to what you know to avoid getting lost or confused and definitely wear sensible shoes for walking. In addition to knowing where you’ll go ahead of time, bring a flashlight to help keep you on track.
If possible, go the face painting route instead of a mask. Not only will you (or your child) be able to breathe better, it allows for easier identification in large groups of people. Face paint should be applied the night before to a small area to determine if the paint causes any irritation or can be removed with minimal effort.
As far as costumes go, make sure they’re flame resistant—you’d be surprised at the number of accidents caused by luminaries and low-hanging garments. Keep them short and be sure to fasten reflective tape to costumes and bags—this will help drivers immensely.
