The tradition way to light up your Jack-0-Lanter is to put an open flame candle but to eliminate the fire hazard that comes along with that, it is wiser to put a battery-operated candle or a glow stick.
Staying away from costumes that have long pieces are fabric will help keep from your costume accidentally landing in an open flame.
Decorations such as dried flowers, hay or cornstalks catch fire easily. It is highly recommended to keep all open flames a good distance away from decorations.
Lastly, always have a defined, clear exit route in case of an emergency and a fire extinguisher nearby.
