How it works





Each GlowMan Costume™ includes a black, hooded jumpsuit with presewnconnectors, a pack of custom size glow sticks and assembly instructions.



    To activate your GlowMan glow stick Halloween costume, begin by
removing the garment from the package and lay it out in front of you.
Make sure the pre-sewn connectors are facing up.
    Do not remove the glow sticks from their protective packaging until you are ready to activate the suit. Once activated, the stick glows for about 10 -12 hours. You will need to purchase a refill pack at your retailer or at for repeated use.     image2  
    When you are ready to wear your GlowMan Costume™, simply remove the glow sticks from their protective packaging and activate them by bending them back and forth. You will hear a distinctive “cracking” sound letting you know that the stick has been activated. Shake the glow stick as shown for best results. You will know the glow sticks have been activated when they begin to glow.     image2  
    Follow the easy to read instructions and begin lacing the activated glow sticks through the designated pre-sewn connectors as instructed.     image2  
    Once all glow sticks have been inserted, your GlowMan Costume™ is ready to wear.     image2  
    Simply untie the back opening and slip the jumpsuit on over your clothes. Tie the back of the jumpsuit for a good fit. Your GlowMan Costume™ is activated and ready to go. For best results, use in a dark room or at night.        


GlowMan Costumes Assembly Tips


After assembling your costume, we recommend that you try it on practice movements like walking, stretching, twisting, sitting, standing, squatting, raising arms, legs etc.

This exercise will help you determine if a connector feels loose or if a glow stick is prone to popping out of its place. If you notice that a glow stick becomes unattached from the connector, we suggest you wrap a 1 inch piece of clear tape around the end of the glow stick and re-insert into the connector. The tape will provide an extra tight fight fit between connector and glow stick to prevent pops that may result from certain movements.
