If you’ve seen the breakout Korean series Squid Game, odds are you haven’t been able to stop thinking about it. If marbles have been haunting your nightmares, we suggest leaning into the series by turning the Squid Game characters into your 2021 Halloween costume.
They say to embrace what you fear, right? C’mere little spider!
Luckily, a Squid Game Halloween costume will be way more comfortable than those super high bunk beds were. Whether you keep it comfy in a green tracksuit or get fancy with a VIP gold mask, you can easily recreate the looks from one of hottest (read: most traumatizing) shows of the year.
Here’s a complete guide to all the best Squid Game Halloween costumes. They’re perfect for a group costume or rolling solo, but we know that teams can be helpful. Actually…we may need some time to build up our trust of people again.
How to Create the Perfect Squid Game Costumes for Halloween
The Player Costume
This group is the most unlucky bunch, but lucky for you, it’s an easy Halloween costume. All you need is a white tee, a green track jacket with a number on it (or just pin one on), green pants, and white sneakers. A month ago, who would have thought this look would be so devastatingly iconic?
If you don’t want to DIY this look, there are a few online retailers selling the full get-up. Just choose your number wisely. You will be judged on that.
The Guard Costume
We’re not saying that the guards have it better off than the players, but at least they get to sleep in private rooms. If you want to channel the enforcers of the deadly games, suit up in red and throw on a full-face black helmet. We can only assume they practice fencing in their off time.
- Red jumpsuit
- Black helmet (available with a square, circle, triangle, or pack of all three)
- Black boots
The Front Man Costume
We may have a lot of questions about the Squid Game Front Man, but one of them is not how to create his look.
If you can reach into your closet and can pull out 10 black articles of clothing, then this is the Halloween costume for you. Pick up a new lint roller while you’re at it.
The VIP Costume
These gentlemen had a small but impactful presence in the show, just like those rogue jalapeno seeds that sneak into our PB&J sandwiches. Just us?
Anyway, all you need is a gold mask and fancy suit to dress up as one of these bored psychopaths.
The “Red Light, Green Light” Doll Costume
And here we thought doll-sized dolls were scary! You can easily dress up as one of the most terrifying characters of the series with an orange dress and yellow shirt.
When your face starts to glaze over after three minutes listening to your friend talk about the Kardashians, just say that you’re really getting into character.
Bonus: Squid Costume
Even if gory, psychologically twisted TV shows aren’t your thing, that doesn’t mean you have to miss out on the fun. Dress up in a giant inflatable squid costume and pretend that it’s ironic, not that you didn’t watch the show. But if you didn’t…what exactly are you doing here? Not that we don’t enjoy the company! We just need extra snacks.
