Easy Halloween costumes inspired by Netflix

The possibilities are endless when it comes to Halloween costumes. You can DIY your own props, costume, or put on elaborate Halloween makeup. However, this list of ideas are for the ones who prefer to keep it simple. Most of these costumes are ready-made, and you’ll just have to make sure to purchase them in advance to ensure they arrive in time for Halloween. Some of them are made up of apparel that you might even already have in your closet. Plus, you can still don them as your #OOTD even after Spook-tober is over!

Easy Netflix Halloween costumes for your squad

1. Squid Game

“Mu gung hwa ggochi piyeo seumnida” — if this chant sends a chill down your spine, you’ve probably just binged the latest Netflix hit series, Squid Game. This Halloween is the perfect opportunity for you to dress up as a Squid Game character to give a nod to this dark survival game show that has taken the world by storm. But first, take your pick: team green or pink?

According to Squid Game director Hwang Dong-Hyuk, the players in the series were dressed in green gym attire as they reminded him of what Korean high school students wore back then. Most importantly, it was a way to remove their individuality and symbolise conformity. While you’d certainly not want to participate in the deadly game (or maybe you do?), these uniforms make for an easy Halloween costume this 2021. Simply get the Squid Game Uniform (available on Costume Boutique) and pick your favourite character’s number!

  • Masked men

In striking contrast, the masked men carrying out duties donned hot pink jumpsuits. Their masks were marked with the three iconic shapes of the series — circle, triangle and square. According to director Hwang, this design was inspired by ant colonies — where ants carry out delineated roles in a clear system, but looked indistinguishable on the outside. For an easy Halloween costume, get the Squid Game Mask (available on Otellalasercut Store) which is available in every shape. Complete the get-up with this Red Guard Suit (available on 3C Bobo)!

  • Front man

The coolest, most mysterious, outfit of Squid Game undisputedly goes to the Front Man. Fret not if you don’t have access to a 3D printer to churn out the polygon mask — simply get the ready-made Front Man’s mask (available on powergo.sg) online for an easy Halloween costume. Throw on a black Long Hooded Coat (available on honor2008.sg) to complete the look. If you want to go all out, finish it off with a pair of Black Gloves (available on flamingo.sg)! 

2. Hospital Playlist

Hospital Playlist has been holding its spot on Netflix Singapore’s Top 10 series for the longest time in 2021, and rightly so. K-drama fan or not, we’ve all been hooked on this wholesome series revolving around five doctors at Yulje Medical Center who’ve been friends since medical school. Thanks to this hit series, the registration for organ donors multiplied by 11 times in South Korea recently. That’s how much positive influence this drama has!

Gather your squad and pay homage to these on-screen medical heroes with an easy Halloween costume this 2021. All you’ll need is a set of Hospital Playlist Surgical Pajamas (available on etc_box.sg) that resembles the scrubs they wear and a pair of black crocs with jibbitz (available on hekrongsg.sg). If you’d like to take the outfit up a notch, you can even customise your own Hospital Playlist ID Card (available on kdramamerch.idn.sg) to complete this easy Halloween costume.

3. Money Heist

Simply get the Money Heist Costume (available on glowbean.sg) that’s affordably priced at less than $15. If you want to match the crew’s get-up to a tee, wear a black t-shirt underneath and a pair of black boots (available on Dr. Martens Singapore Official Store)!

It’s safe to say that F.R.I.E.N.D.S is the most iconic sitcom of all time. Almost two decades after its finale, this series is still the talk of the town. If your crew wants to give a nod to this timeless comedy, here are five easy Halloween costumes for each of the characters for you to reference. You might already have some of these clothes in your wardrobe, which makes things even more convenient!

Relate most to Joey’s fun-loving personality? Many of you might remember this scene where he tries to act like he’s 19 years old in a comedic get-up — an idea for an easy Halloween costume that pays homage to this character. Pair any grey T-shirt and a Knicks jersey (available on Singapore Jerseys) or any retro basketball vest and throw on a beanie to complete the look. Get into character by ordering a meatball sub or strike them with an iconic “How you doin?” pick-up line.

  • Ross Geller

Want to dress up as Ross this Halloween? His outfits are pretty simple as he’s commonly seen in a sweater or a suit throughout the show. However, you can give it a unique spin by doing a throwback to this memorable episode when his spray-on tan goes wrong. All you’ll need is to paint your face brown with a bronzer and wear a yellow sweater (available on INCERUN Official Store).

  • Monica Geller

Are you the motherly one in the group who loves to cook and host your friends? If you answered yes, this Monica-inspired Halloween costume is for you! In episode three of season one, Monica sported a red top (available on XiaoZhaiNv Women’s Clothing), and a pair of dark blue denim overalls (available on CACO Clothing) with white sneakers (available on Superga Singapore Official Store). We love how retro yet youthful this outfit is, and it makes for an easy Halloween costume too! For a more convincing get-up, use a hair curler to recreate her iconic hairstyle. If all else fails, just scream “I KNOW!” and they’ll get it. 

  • Phoebe

You can go full-on boho chic for an easy Halloween costume to dress up as Phoebe — or was it Princess Consuela Bananahammock? One of our favourite Phoebe outfits is this one where she sports a cream long-sleeve turtleneck blouse (available on bigbigfun.sg) with a black maxi dress (available on ZANZEA Official Store) over it. You can’t go without some vintage accessories, so this boho necklace (available on Fashion Jewellery) is definitely an essential part of this outfit!

Rachel Green is one of the biggest style icons of the 90s. There are many ways to get around dressing up as this character. A turtleneck top, jumpsuit, or a sexy spaghetti strapped dress — these are all options you can consider. For an easy Halloween outfit, we chose to go for one of her most snazzy get-ups — a fuzzy lavender turtleneck top (available on rashidahanis89) paired with an animal print skirt (available on day6.sg)!

6. Umbrella Academy

Vincenzo Cassano is often seen in bespoke suits throughout the drama, and we especially love this blue tuxedo (available on annabawi313nt.sg) fit that he donned to court with Cha-Young. Apart from the suit and tie, he also sported a pair of full-black sunglasses (available on Ray-Ban SG Official Store) that channelled mafia vibes, and held a chic brown leather messenger bag (available on Oxhide Leather Official Store).

9. Brooklyn 99

A policeman’s uniform may be a cool idea for a Halloween costume. But what’s even better is taking a leaf out of the books of B99 by dressing up as the one true pair — Jake and Amy. Each of their characters is full of personality, which can be incorporated into the outfit too!

  • For him — Jake Peralta

Across the show, Jake is often seen in a leather jacket (available on Oxhide Leather Official Store) and jeans. Underneath the jacket, throw on a blue button-down shirt (available on The Shirt Bar Official Store). Most importantly, you’ll need to add on a badge on a chain (available on Hazel Men’s Accessories Store) to show that you’re part of the NYPD!

  • For her — Amy Santiago

Opposite of Jake, Amy is either decked up in her lieutenant uniform or seen in her well-pressed blazer (available on VONDA Official Store), a salmon coloured v-neck blouse (available on Closetonline Women Flagship Store) and a belt (available on Oxhide Leather Official Store). But what’s most quintessential to her character is a bursting binder file titled “Conflict Resolution”.

Jujutsu Kaisen is a shonen anime series that has been making waves for its intensely action-packed episodes and never-seen-before powers in the plot. If you’re a fan of this series, dress up as one of its strongest characters, Gojo Satoru.
