Squid Game, the runaway hit Netflix K-drama that’s taken the world by storm, has inspired various ideas for Halloween costumes this year.
The show features several “dreamlike, fantasy” settings, as described by cast members, with colorful backdrops, including many of the characters’ outfits. These ethereal scenes contrast the series’ dark storyline, which sees hundreds fight to the death in a series of survival games.
Here we look at some of the best Squid Game-themed Halloween costume ideas.
1. Player Tracksuits
Users can get green tracksuits nearly identical to the ones worn by the players in the series. Buy the two-piece jacket and trouser on Amazon for player No. 456 (played by Lee Jung-jae) here, and for No. 067 (played by HoYeon Jung) here.
The numbered, baseball shirt-style tops worn by the contestants are also available on Amazon here. They are available for players No. 456, 001, 067, 218 and 240.
Complete your player uniform with a pair of white slip-on sneakers inspired by the ones in the show. Treat yourself to some classic white Vans sneakers here or find other Vans-inspired versions like this one from Lugz here.
2. Guard Uniforms
Sport the hot pink Squid Game staff member jumpsuits this Halloween. Similar jumpsuits are available on Amazon here.
You can also find masks inspired by the guards’ masks here (ones with either the circle, square or triangle symbol) as well as a balaclava here, which they wear underneath their masks, both on Amazon.
3. The Doll in Red Light, Green Light
Get dressed up as the creepy giant doll seen in the Red Light, Green Light round of the competition in Squid Game.
You can buy an outfit themed around the doll’s dress and a mask featuring the doll’s face on Amazon here.
4. The Front Man Outfit
The Front Man look can be completed with any plain black parka jacket, such as this one from Uniqlo here.
5. VIP Mask
You can buy one inspired by the VIP tiger mask at Xocostume here.
6. ‘Squid Game’ Finalist Tuxedos
Just before the final round of the competition, the three finalists were each given a black and white tuxedo to wear for a special steak dinner they were served to congratulate them for making it to the final round.
Squid Game fans can don similar suits from The USA Suits here. Buyers can make their orders with their desired number imprinted on the blazer, the company says.
7. Get Some Fake Tattoos
Wear some fake tattoos to sport the look of Deok-su (contestant no. 101, played by Heo Sung-tae), a gangster among the players who is seen with tattoos around his neck and face.
8. Wear a Red Wig
In the final episode of Squid Game, player No. 456 appears with his hair dyed in an arresting bright red hue. Get this look for Halloween by simply wearing a similar wig, such as this one available on Amazon here.
You could also opt to dye your hair red, such as with this temporary hair color spray from Walmart here.
