Squid Game Halloween costumes are a bit of a no-brainer for 2022 as the spooky show continues to be one of Netflix's most-streamed shows, ever.

Not only does the Korean drama's colorful wardrobe translate into very easy Halloween costumes for adults—think major looks with minimal effort—but the show's popularity begs for an IRL detective Jun Ho and Kang Sae-Byeok at your October 31 get-together.

Whether you opt to be a Squid Games player, a pink-clad guard, or even the Red Light, Green Light doll, there are plenty of looks from the Netflix hit to choose from. With ensembles that might convince friends you're an extra on the show, there's no way you'll be eliminated from the top costume contest contenders. (If only players didn't have to worry about elimination...)
