The "I'm Invisible" children's costume is an all black bodysuit, which includes a black mask and black gloves.
Those raising concerns say the costume makes it harder for drivers to see children crossing the street in the dark, and for those children to see oncoming cars.
Eli Brightbill is the part-owner of Raleigh costume shop Halloween Alley.
"Nighttime and Halloween costumes are always a problem," Brightbill said.
He said children should carry something to make them more visible, like glow sticks, a flashlight, or a bright trick-or-treating bag.
Halloween Alley sells the "I'm Invisible costume." The local shop faced a costume controversy of their own after many complained about a "Dorothea Dix Psych Ward," costume, which has now been pulled off the shelves.

Brightbill says avoiding controversy is part of the reason why the store isn't carrying the Caitlyn Jenner costume.
"We didn't feel like it was worth having 20 phone calls a day where people are complaining that it's inappropriate and we shouldn't sell it."
Having the "Caitlyn Jenner costume" in local Halloween Stores is absolutely horrible and disrespectful to her and the transgender community— Pangaea Saunders (@PangaeaCurlyQ) October 20, 2015
if you think for a second that Caitlyn Jenner is an off limits Halloween costume then I advise not going anywhere on Halloween— fletcher johnson (@Fletchlight_) October 19, 2015
The Caitlyn Jenner costume isn't the only costume being tweeted about. Cultural costumes are also being debated online.
Why is it right for people to wear Mexican costume, Chinese costumes, or native American costumes? Someone's Culture Is Not A joke— Jasmine (@queen_mufasa_) August 10, 2015
This halloween costume issue is unreal u have to be out of your mind to think dressing as a native american is offensive— Mark (@realmarkreinert) October 28, 2015
Brightbill says people should be able to wear whatever costume they want.
"I think the problem is that we've gotten to a point where society has decided that it's okay to criticize what people want to wear on Halloween."
