Just a wee reminder, when your buying your Halloween costumes cheap is not always the best.

The awful case of TV presenter Claudia Winkleman's daughter, whose Halloween costume burst into flames when brushed by a candle, is a real reminder to put safety at the top of your list this year. Link to Claudia Winklemans Interview

Dressing-up costumes do not have to adhere to the strict flammability rules that clothing does as they are classed as 'toys', not clothing.

• Look for the CE safety marking, many Halloween costumes are classed as toys rather than clothing .
• Look for the 'flame-resistant' label
• Wear clothes under the costume to give some protection to the skin if a costume were to catch fire or melt.
• Beware of tassels and capes that could easily catch fire
• Use LED tea lights for pumpkins rather than traditional tea lights with naked flames.

Just noticed Sainsbury's have the following Stay Safe and Safety Standards Message on their site

We want to help make sure everyone stays safe this Halloween and we've looked at every detail of our dress-up range to improve safety, going over and above what's required by law. We are please to confirm that our children's dress-up outfits meet the European Toy (EN71) safety standard and also the British Nightwear Flammability (BS5722 Test 3) safety standard – which is the toughest standard that currently exists.?

Our fancy dress lines are always tested at the manufacturing stage to make sure they are safe for sale and comply with all legislation.

For a truly horrifying Halloween why not dress up as Claudia Winkleman or her daughter?!

Funny until you mentioned the daughter. Bad taste.
