Staying Warm and In Costume This Halloween Season with Heated Clothing
(Example: a Bride of Frankenstein's Monster look! 👰♀️)
Trick-or-treating is one of the most exciting parts of the Halloween season! Kids get to dress up as their favorite characters, parents get the joy of watching their little ones get excited, and who doesn’t love candy? Going door to door enjoying the decorations, haunted houses, and candy is nothing short of an amazing night. But Halloween is so much more than costumes and decorations. It’s spooky season! It’s decorating the house with spiderwebs, it’s carving pumpkins, it’s going to fall festivals and corn mazes. There's something for everyone.
While Halloween is full of fun activities, it also comes with chilly weather. When you’re out trick-or-treating with the kids, it’s easy to get cold! Going door to door while your little ones get candy is certainly heart-warming, but the weather can make it bone-chilling! It’s hard to enjoy the special occasion when you’re miserable, and that goes for any other fall activity! It’s important to stay warm so that you can enjoy the little things.
That’s where ORORO comes in. Our heated apparel not only keeps you warm, but you can also wear it with your own Halloween costume! While it’s fun to watch your kids dress up, it’s even more fun to match with them. Here are some Halloween costume ideas for both moms and dads to go with your heated apparel and your kid’s costume.
Costumes for Moms
Minnie-Mouse is a classic costume and will pair great with your little one if they’re wearing a cartoon costume! The best part? Minnie-Mouse is super easy to do. All you need to do is wear a black heated fleece jacket or a classic heated black vest and throw a pair of Minnie-Mouse ears on and you’re set! If you want to go the extra mile, you can always paint on a cute little black nose to finish the look.
If you’re not sure if you want to choose from the black jacket or vest, consider the climate that you live in and how hot you run. If you tend to be on the chillier side, go for the heated fleece jacket. If you tend to run warmer or live in a climate that isn’t too harsh, go for the classic black vest. The batteries on both last up to 10 hours, so you’ll be warm either way!
Who doesn't want to be a princess? For this look, choose the purple heated fleece vest and throw on a tiara and you’re good to go! You can always choose to do some fancy makeup to complete the look (and to make yourself feel amazing). Because the vest is a bright purple, you’ll look most like Rapunzel or Aurora, both of whom are classic princesses. If your little one is going as Elsa, Belle, Cinderella, or any other princess, this will be the perfect costume for you to match.
The heated fleece vest is a polyester/cotton blend and will last up to 10 hours on low, so it will keep you warm throughout trick-or-treating! There are 3 carbon-fiber heating elements in the 2 pockets and across the back for an all-around toasty feeling. Trick-or-treating in this heated fleece vest won’t disappoint!
If your child is a fan of the franchise from a galaxy far, far away, then you have to go as their space princess! In order to achieve this costume, you’d have to make the famous buns (which can be bought if you have short hair, or, if you have long hair, you can make them on your own). If you want to be the princess while she’s on the snow planet, choose the light grey heated jacket to match her costume! If you would rather wear a vest than a jacket, the white classic heated vest is for you.
The battery on both pieces of clothing can last up to 10 hours, so choosing which option is best for you is really a matter of preference. If you live in colder weather, go with the jacket. Milder weather is best suited for the vest. But, if you tend to get cold easily, the jacket is probably the better option for you.
If your child’s costume is a character from the comic book world, you can always go with the easy Catwoman look. All you have to do is throw on a pair of cat ears and you’re done. If you want to go for the traditional black cat look instead, you can always paint on a nose and a pair of whiskers. But don’t forget your ORORO heated apparel! For a black cat look, choose any one of our black apparel options. You might choose the black heated parka, the heated fleece hoodie, the slim fit down vest, or any one of our other toasty options!
Costumes for Dads
Batman is a beloved superhero and is the perfect costume to pair with Superman, the Joker, Wonder Woman, or any other character. Who knows, maybe you and your child could both go as Batman! This is a super easy costume to do because all you need is a black piece of ORORO apparel and a batman mask. If you really want to get into character, you could even put on a cape!
When it comes to choosing which piece of heated apparel to wear, you have so many options. You may choose the black classic heated jacket if you live in a colder climate (or if you’re always cold), or the black lightweight heated down vest if the weather where you live isn’t as harsh. Either way, you’ll make a great Batman!
If your child loves superheroes, they’ll love that you’ll go dressed as the Hulk! All you need is a green classic heated vest and a pair of hulk gloves. Easy, right? If you want to get the full effect of the Incredible Hulk, you could even paint your face green. Whether your child is also dressed as the hulk, is going as Captain Marvel or Captain America, you’ll match them perfectly.
The green classic heated vest is one of our newer items, so be sure to buy one before we run out! It’s filled with sustainable insulation and can last up to 10 hours on a single charge, so you’re sure to be warm during the entirety of trick-or-treating.
The Dark Lord
If your child (or you) love the stories from the galaxy far, far away, then this will be a great costume for you. It would be even better if your child is going as one of the famous twins (a spunky general and a kid who grew up on a planet of sand)! For this costume, all you really need is a red saber. If you want a full-out costume, get a helmet too! If it has the fun heavy breathing effect, that’s an added bonus. After you’ve got your gear, grab a black piece of ORORO apparel. Whether you grab a black heated pullover hoodie or a black heated jacket, you’re sure to look the part!
