This Halloween, why not try for the costume that has been a very famous series, the Squid Game? It was released in 2021 on Netflix, and within no time, it became one of the most popular shows for everyone. Whether you want to go as a player, a guard, or the “red light, green light” doll this Halloween, the global success of the series means that you have endless options for where to buy or DIY your Squid Game costume.

In the show, contestants wear teal tracksuits with their personal identification numbers, while guards sport hooded red jumpsuits with black fencing masks. Then there’s the robot schoolgirl who serves as the gamemaster for the first episode’s “Red Light, Green Light” challenge, and finally, the eerie Front Man, who wears a geometric face mask with a sleek black coat and leather gloves.

Lee Jung-Jae leads the Squid Game cast as Song Gi-hun, a man in a lot of debt who’s invited to compete in a mysterious tournament for the chance to win a vast amount of prize money in Squid Game. The catch? If you lose the game, you lose your life.

Squid Game Player Halloween Costumes


Whether you want to dress as the main character Gi-hun(456) or the villainous Jang Deok-su (101), they all are pretty much the same and wear the same teal tracksuits, teal baseball tees underneath. The only difference between all of these costumes and players is their numbers. You can customise stitch it, or you can DIY and purchase.

The Player’s Green Suit

The squid game has inspired a whole green suit. So, finding a full suit in the right color might mean a scroll through Etsy. If you can find a plain green tracksuit and have a spare white tee, some iron-on decals of a three-digit number of your choice. Some white slip-on sneakers will complete the costume.

The Players Red Suit

If you want a little scarier option, you will find it very difficult to DIY. Then, you can purchase it from Etsy or Amazon. It’s better if you can get your hands on a plain jumpsuit with a hood to dye it red or find a red jumpsuit. Then, all you need to have is a black belt and a mask to complete your costume.

The Players Red Suit

As for the mask, fans have said that it resembles a black fencing helmet. Halloween and party stores also sell all-black ghoul masks, with fabric that covers the entire head. All you’ll need is some white paint to draw the Game symbol. You can even choose your rank: circle for workers, triangle for supervisors, squares for managers. Whichever you choose, we recommend preceding a fake machine gun.

The “Red Light, Green Light” Doll’s Dress

This is the costume where your imagination can run wild (unless you’d rather turn to a Halloween store for the traditional style). Look wherever you prefer–boutiques, thrift stores, maybe your own closet– for a yellow short-sleeve shirt, an orange mini-dress, white knee-high socks, and black Mary Janes. For the finishing touches, style your hair in pigtails and practice the Korean phrase 무궁화 꽃이 피었습니다 (it translates to “the mugunghwa flower has bloomed.”

The Behind-The-Scenes Squid Game Characters

There is a lot more going on behind the scenes of the game as all of the players are fighting and planning for their life. Also,The mysterious Front Man is in charge of the performance from behind a scruffy mask. The VIPs are the ones who control the action while placing bets on their players while donning gold animal masks. Then there is Hwang Jun-ho, who poses as a server to investigate what is happening. The mask is essential to these outfits.

Here are some additional details about the Squid Game costume:

The jumpsuit is a one-piece garment that is made of a red polyester blend. It has a white collar and a numbered tag on the front. The tag is usually either 456, 218, or 001, which are the numbers of the main characters in the show.

The sneakers are white canvas sneakers with a black stripe down the middle. They are a comfortable and practical choice for a costume that will likely involve a lot of running.

The hair wig is optional, but it can help you to look more like the characters in the show. If you choose to wear a wig, make sure to get one that is a natural-looking shade of black.

The masks are the most iconic part of the Squid Game costume. They are made of plastic and come in three shapes: a triangle, a circle, and a star. The shape of the mask corresponds to the player’s number.
