Popular Costume That Makes Kids Invisible Worries Parents



Halloween is a time when kids typically get dressed up as characters -- but this year, many are choosing to appear nearly invisible which concerns parents and safety experts.

The popular costume is basically a stretchy fitted bodysuit that covers the person from head to toe.

According to one online retailer, the jumpsuit, hooded mask, gloves, and socks will have the person wearing them "disappearing in the blink of an eye."

While the ensemble is sold in different colors, some stores are reporting that black is by far the most popular.

The trend is worrisome to many, as the costume can endanger kids who cannot be spotted by drivers.

Because a black hood covers the face, the trick-or-treaters themselves will likely have impaired vision, as is noted on some packages.

Halloween is already a dangerous time for children, as their chances of getting hit by a car double compared to other days.

A law firm in Phoenix is even reportedly trying to convince retailers to stop selling the costume due to safety concerns.
