·3-min read

Squid Game is like a car crash – no matter how violent and gory, you just can’t stop watching.

The South Korean survival drama (which errs on horror) has gripped the world with its quasi-realistic portrayal of a game in which people die for money. Think The Cube, but with blood and guts.

Unsurprisingly, this Halloween – which is set to be a big one after last year’s Covid-tinged nightmare – people of all ages are on the prowl for the best Squid Game-themed costumes. Ditch the witch’s hat and cat ears and get bang on the cultural agenda with an outfit that is actually scary.

If you don’t have time to trawl the Internet’s many options before October 31, we’ve whittled down the best bargains and spine-tinglingly good outfits into the list below.

Squid Game Front Man/Boss Halloween Costume

Arguably one of the most sinister characters in the plot, the Front Man’s costume suits his terrifying persona.

Pair it with sturdy boots, and you’ll be sure to stomp into any party and steal the thunder.

The mask is also avaliable at Etsy and eBay

Squid Game Robot Girl Doll Red Light Green Light Costume

In spite of her short cameo in Episode One, the robotic girl who heads the Red Light, Green Light game has become one of the most recognisable and iconic characters from the series. Dolls are always a popular Halloween costume, but give your look a Squid Game twist with this lookalike dress and simple mask. To elevate the look further, add pigtails, knee high white socks and this premium mask from Etsy.

Squid Game Gold Face VIP Mask Costume

The VIPs are the menacing, disgustingly rich men who come from far and wide to watch the murderous Games unfold. Perhaps the most chilling thing about these characters is their proximity to some of the world’s most powerful men (think some of America’s ex-presidents and top business men). Their sordid identities are masqueraded by ironically animalistic golden masks, which have been duped on Etsy. Wear with a crisp black suit and tie for the full look.

The masks are also available on eBay and Amazon
