A Squid Game Halloween – How to Put Together Costumes Based on Netflix’s Hit Squid Game
“Where can I buy a Squid Game costume?”
It’s the number 1 question on almost everyone’s mind for this coming Halloween. Netflix dropped a sleeper hit when the Korean Gameshow Drama Squid Game first debuted on their platform on September 17th, 2021. From there, it quickly grew in popularity over the next days, until in a matter of weeks it had become a cultural phenomenon. You couldn’t have a conversation without having watched the show. And between being taken in by Sang-Woo’s deviousness, Sae-Byeok’s ruthlesness (and attractiveness, with actress Jung Ho-yeon growing from around 500k followers to 16 million and counting on Instagram), and Seong Gi-hun’s hopefulness, it’s no surprise the show has garnered such a following.
Which turns our attention towards one thing – Halloween, Costumes, and Cosplaying. Specifically, people want to be able to buy Halloween costumes without having to worry about oversea shipping times (a lot of the costumes are being made in China or Korea), just in time for them to roll up to parties and scare their friends. Below, we’ve put together a list of some of the best squid game costumes you can buy – and best of all, they’re all available through Amazon. You don’t have to worry about fluctuating shipping times or questionable quality!
