Just a reminder that Halloween is now more of a children's day of dress up fun more than anything else. I love dressing up for any excuse (as you know) and I've always encouraged DD to join in
Here we are some years ago on Halloween on our way to a party.
With more and more cheap costumes appearing on the market it's easy to assume all are safe. Check before you wear! Fire is a bigger risk than ever at Halloween not just due to trailing mummy bandages and wispy fairy wings, but all those pumpkins with candles in too!
Why not opt for either LED lights in your pumpkins and decorations or glowsticks to remove some risk. And check your costume is fire safe too.

Have a Happy Halloween.
Escapade – LED Candle Initiative
been in the fancy dress business for over 34 years, and as an
authorised retailer of some of the largest brands in the world, all
Escapade products conform to European safety standards.
Candles are one of the biggest causes of fires in the home - the London Fire Brigade
attends around 20 fires a month caused by candles, incense and oil
burners. Therefore, safety must come first and be the highest priority
this Halloweens season.
“Unlike any other event throughout the year, during Halloween it
is traditional to use candles in Jack-O-Lanterns around the door. As
part of our fire awareness training we learn that there are three
elements to make a fire: oxygen; fuel; and a heat source. We all need to
breathe and wear clothing (be it fancy dress costume or a school
uniform), but with the use of LED lights we can eliminate the heat
source, making it impossible for fire to exist. Halloween should be
scary for the right reason; together let’s make it safer for everyone”
