When looking for skate-friendly costumes, you may want to avoid capes, dresses and any clothing that may drag or restrict movement. This is to keep your skater (especially beginners) safe and minimize falls. These costumes (pictured below) are cute, glow-in-the-dark and have sizes for the whole family.

Before you go, here's a brief intro to skate anatomy:

the 5 parts of the skate

  • boot - high top boots provide more ankle support, low-cut boots allow faster skating and more flexibility for cool skate moves

  • tongue - make sure it doesn't bunch up when you put on your skate; if it does, just pull the tongue up to straighten it out

  • laces - tighten the boot to your foot

  • wheels - there are 4, which is why roller skates are also known as quad skates

  • plate - determines how your skate feels

  • toe stop - helps you safely slow down and brake


and here are some skate tips (for kids and beginners)...


  • hold your arms out (like a plane, bird or butterfly) to gain balance

  • walk/march in skates until you learn to roll on them

  • stay focused on where you are going, not your feet
