Asda Glow in the Dark Skeleton Costume

“The Asda Glow in the Dark Skeleton Costume is a good value option for younger children, but I’m not convinced it will survive the washing machine.”

Initial thoughts: Asda’s well-known for its affordable Halloween outfits, so we were excited to see what’s on offer this year. When we unpacked this glow in the dark children’s skeleton outfit, I was a little underwhelmed at first – it might have benefited from some spooky accessories. It comes in two sizes (1-3 and 3-5), and consists of a pair of trousers and a hooded top – the hood is the skull.

We liked:
The Asda Glow in the Dark Skeleton Costume was nice and easy for Elliot to put on, and I liked that the costume is designed on the roomy side – so there’s plenty of room for children to wear nice warm clothes underneath. The fabric is a little thin otherwise, so I’d definitely recommend layering if you’re heading out trick or treating. The glow in the dark really works, and adds a real sense of fun to the outfit. The overall look is good, and having a hood rather than a separate helmet makes it easier for toddlers to keep on – and helps to keep them cosy!

We weren’t so keen: The fabric is really thin and cheap and it doesn’t seem that the costume would stand the test of time really well. Also I am not sure it will wash well without damaging the pattern, but that’s only something that time will tell.

Overall: The Asda Glow in the Dark Skeleton Costume is a cheap outfit that does what it says on the box. It might have been more exciting with a few accessories, but you can always buy those separately. We certainly found it very practical to wear it’s good value for money.
