Every ‘Squid Game’ Costume and What You Need to Rock Them

·5 min read

“Squid Game” is just about the hottest series on Netflix right now (and maybe ever, if Deadline’s reporting is true), and everyone is watching it, talking about it, or, it seems — dressing as someone from it for Halloween. The dangerous-and-delicious candy from episode 3 has already reached cult status and even become its viral “Squid Game” Honeycomb Candy Challenge. So, it’s no wonder the Korean limited series has made a demand for last-minute “Squid Game” Halloween costumes reach a fever pitch.

Some of the most noticeable looks of the series are matching green numbered tracksuits, red jumpsuits with fencing masks, and of course, the black tailored look of the Front Man. Even the VIPs have costumes of their own this year.

All these looks have significant, pivotal meaning to the characters and the plot — but as crucial as the distinctions are in the series, they are all easily recreated right at home as we all prepare for Halloween. These costumes are pretty straightforward, not complicated, and involve pieces that can be found almost anywhere (and most definitely on Amazon).

So, in your soul of souls, are you really a character in a Korean dystopian series? Great. Here are some spots to shop online to nail what is sure to be the biggest Halloween costume of 2021.

Those Green Tracksuits

This record-breaking series is about people in debt (there’s an exact number, in fact) who compete to win a cash prize that will ultimately change their lives forever. Those involved in the competition all wear matching green tracksuits with an embroidered three-digit number corresponding to their acceptance to the game, thus replacing their name. (Think … prison.) The order of the number plays no role in the game itself, thereby rendering everyone nameless and “equal.”

While those made for series fans exist (complete with numbers to signify favorite characters), other green tracksuits with or without numbers ironed on could also get the point across. If you find a tracksuit without numbers, it’s easy to iron on the digits of your choice as well.

That Creepy Robot Girl

If you are anything like us, you really didn’t know what to expect when you saw that cute doll-like little girl standing three stories tall above all those folks. We definitely didn’t expect her to shoot from her eyes with laser-like precision (oh yeah, spoiler alert for that one person who hasn’t watched it yet). That red-light-gree-light song is the stuff of nightmares — and so is the remix.
