Easy Netflix-inspired Halloween costumes for 2021
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 Netflix Halloween costumes are ready-made, and you’ll just have to make sure to purchase them in advance! 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. Halloween 2021 is the perfect opportunity for you to dress up in a Squid Game costume to give a nod to this dark survival game show that has taken the world by storm. Here’s a slew of Squid Game Halloween costumes to consider:
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 Squid Game uniforms make for an easy Netflix Halloween costume this 2021. Simply get the Squid Game Uniform (available on Costume Boutique) and pick your favourite character’s number!
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 this Squid Game Halloween costume with the Pink Guard Jumpsuit (available on Handmade wiht love.sg)!
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 ideetoys.sg) online for an easy Squid Game Halloween costume. Throw on the black Front Man Cloak (available on Handmade wiht love.sg) to complete the look.
Squid Game doll
To instill some terror in your next ghoulish Halloween gathering this 2021, dress up as the giant animatronic doll in Squid Game. For this Netflix ensemble, get the Robot Doll Costume (available on blackolive.sg). To recreate the look exactly, put on a pair of Knee-High Socks (available Citrusox Official Store) and Black Shoes (available on Melissa Official Store).
Squid Game salesman
Despite only appearing in a few scenes, Gong Yoo’s cameo has been a fan-favourite and the subject of multiple Squid Game theories. The Ddakji slapping game has also been recreated by fans across the world at the subway station. For a Netflix Halloween costume this 2021, throw on your tuxedo and bring along a Briefcase (available on KNOMO Flagship Store), Squid Game Card (available on janegoods.sg) and Handmade Ddakji (available on twentysixARTE). Then, put on your best salesman smile to look the part!
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
Want to be the anti-heroes this Halloween? With the recent release of Money Heist’s final season first installment, it’s the perfect time to get decked up in a red suit and Salvador Dali mask. 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)!
4. Attack On Titan
Dressing up as one of the scouts from the smash hit anime series Attack On Titans is sure to ignite some cheer amongst your friends. Get ready to tatakae with this easy Halloween costume that includes the iconic scouts’ green cloak and brown collared jacket (both available on BEAUTY STORE). For girls who want to cosplay as Mikasa, simply add a red scarf into the mix. For guys who want to be Eren, get the Eren’s wig (available on Traverse Cos) to complete the look.
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. You might already have some of these clothes in your wardrobe, which makes things even more convenient!
Could this outfit BE anymore easy?

Apart from the right garb, be sure your quips are as sharp as your dressing!
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.
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).
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.
You can go full-on boho chic 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)!

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.

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”.
