Have you watched Squid Game on Netflix? Well, it's one of the biggest and easiest trends for Halloween costumes, so I thought I'd have a go at some DIY Squid Game costume ideas with a trip to the thrift store.

The great thing about these Squid Game costumes is that they're sustainable; you can wear the clothing all year long or style it into future costumes.

Let’s get started!

Tools and materials:

  • Orange sleeveless dress
  • Yellow crew-neck shirt
  • White knee socks
  • Black pump shoes
  • Green tracksuit
  • White duct tape
  • Chunky white runners
Black shoes for the doll costume

1. Take a trip to your thrift store

I scoured my local thrift store and found great items for my Squid Game Halloween costumes, starting with these black pumps for the creepy doll costume.

Orange dress and yellow shirt for the Squid Game costume

I also found a plain orange dress and yellow crew-neck top for the doll costume.

Green tracksuit for the Squid Game costume

A pair of green jogging pants and a green zip-up jacket will be the base for my Squid Game tracksuit costume.

Wear the yellow crew-neck shirt under the orange dress. Add white knee socks and those black pumps and you’ve recreated the Squid Game doll.

Since I couldn’t find a whole green tracksuit at the thrift store, I needed to make some alterations to the pieces I did find.

First, use ½-inch-wide white duct tape to make the number symbol on the upper-right front of the jacket.

Use the same duct tape to make white stripes down the side of the track pants and on the shoulders of the jacket.

Chunky white runners for the costume

And add some chunky white runners to complete this Squid Game Halloween costume.
