That about says it all. I want to purchase reflective tape to put on kids' very dark costumes they'll be wearing tonight. Does anyone know where I can buy some today? I live in North Raleigh. Thanks

My first thought is to stop in at a bicycle store to get reflective velcro bands that can be strapped but I also like the tape idea.

What about home depot?

Have you stopped in there?

I know I have seen those glow stick things that they could carry or you could attach to their costumes -- either walking in or near the register. They may also have reflective tape -- near the mailboxes -- because I have seen the tape sold near them so you can adhere to mailbox posts.

Also, the dollar store may have glow sticks.

How can you outgrow glow sticks!!?

I saw some reflective stickers at CVS today with the Halloween stuff, but they had ghosts and pumpkins, etc on them so not sure how they feel about that.

Glow sticks were huge among the college-aged population at every rave I ever attended.

Outgrow glow sticks? Errrr...

Glow sticks have the advantage of generating their own light, and not just relying on reflecting other light.
Probably a good idea to have a bit of both.

For reflective tape, also look at any auto parts and hardware store.
