White vans do sell out, but you can still put together a DIY squid play costume in time for Halloween – WKRG News 5


How to make a DIY Squid Game Halloween costume?

“Squid Game” is a South Korean survival thriller that has become a worldwide phenomenon. Last week, Netflix announced that the show has become the company’s largest original series launch to date.

Therefore, as shown on FOX2 now, a “Squid Game” uniform is one of the most sought after Halloween costumes this year. Unfortunately, due to the surprisingly high demand, low supply, and continued pressures of COVID-19 on the shipping industry, not many people will be able to get an official “Squid Game” costume in time for Halloween.

But that doesn’t mean you should succumb to desperation – you wouldn’t make a great Squid Game participant if that’s all it takes to defeat yourself. It just means that you have to get creative and make a DIY costume. And it’s something you can do in time for Halloween.

What is the “squid game”?

“Squid Game” is a 9-episode South Korean drama series on Netflix. The entire season was released on September 17, 2021. By the second week of October, more than 100 million households had tried the series, making it a record breaking show. For reference, “Squid Game” completely dominated “Bridgerton,” which only attracted 82 million viewers in the first month.

The series depicts the journey of 456 desperate individuals who agree to play games for children with life and death issues. If you win, you move on to the next round. If you lose, you are eliminated – in “Squid Game”, “eliminated” is an understatement for execution. There can only be one winner and the grand prize is 45.6 billion won, or over 38 million US dollars.

Although this is a brutally violent series, over the course of the nine episodes, viewers learn the stories of the main characters and understand why they are the way they are. As a result, it’s possible to feel a lot of empathy, even for some of the most despicable villains. Perhaps it is this emotional aspect that has allowed individuals who are not generally fans of the genre to connect so strongly to the show.
