The series that everyone is talking about is Netflix’s Squid Game. The Korean drama has captivated audiences, become one of the streaming service’s most-watched shows of all time.

This costume is ideal for fans of the show, who also need a last minute costume as you can buy sets and cosplay as one of the contestants in the green tracksuit, or as a masked guard in the red and black outfit.

They’re already proving to be bestsellers and the costumes are priced between £18-£30 and you can shop them on Amazon here.

If you don’t want to rep fancy dress this Halloween, then you could opt for a look inspired by spooky season.

From leather to slogan tees, vinyl to lace and goth boots to PVC there’s plenty of pieces on ASOS to create the perfect outfit for Halloween season.

Plus you can re-use most of the clothing for other events and seasons. To shop the ASOS Halloween collections just head to asos.com/men or asos.com/women.

“I’m a mouse, duh”

If all else fails just get inspired by the Plastics from Mean Girls, and the words of Cady: “In girl world, Halloween is the one night a year when girls can dress like a total slut and no other girls can say anything about it”.

So basically just wear some lingerie or underwear as outerwear – and throw in some animal ears to complete your look. From Karen’s “I’m a mouse, duh” to Regina’s bunny look and Gretchen’s tiger, the limit does not exist.

There’s loads to choose from on Amazon including leopard, cat, giraffe, cow and devil ears, so you can match your makeup with your chosen animal and you’re done!
