SantaCon is all about the experience! What better way to take that experience to the next level than to ILLUMINATE YOUR COSTUME? Add some dazzling lights to that hideous sweater, sparkling ice-icicles from your Santa hat, or a rockin pair of illuminated Santa pants! Whatever you choose to light up the night with make sure it’s securely fastened. Not only does it make your SantaCon experience amazing, it makes for great memories for our photographers to promote SantaCon too! There’s that whole safety piece that we like as well 🙂
