Squid Game-inspired products


Type “45” into Google and the results will likely suggest “45.6 billion won” – a testament to how massively popular Netflix’s latest hit, Squid Game, has become. By now, most of us would have had our fair share of gasping and cursing through the entire season. 

With Halloween coming up, below are some costumes, merch and other Squid Game-inspired items that you can order online in Singapore to feel like you’re part of the game.

Update: Netflix has since launched an official line of Squid Game merchandise. Also check out our take on what Squid Game Singapore will look like.


– Costumes  –


1. Staff red jumpsuit

With 31st October right around the corner, Squid Game’s red jumpsuit donned by the staff is one of the coolest costume options out there. Not only can you rock the same outfit worn by hottie Joon Ho – played by Wi Ha-joon – you can also repurpose this suit for future Halloweens to cosplay anyone from Money Heist, or even Red from Among Us.

Get a red jumpsuit from Shopee at $32.


2. Staff mask

A Squid Game staff without a mask is a dead man, so you wouldn’t want to be caught dead in a half-past-six getup. Complete your red jumpsuit costume with the show’s iconic mask, which you can easily purchase off Shopee or Carousell. Triangle, circle and square designs are all available but real bosses will know which trumps the rest. 

Get a staff mask on Carousell at $5.54.


3. Player tees

It may remind you of a class tee from your secondary school days, but these player tees are just something you may soon spot trendy Singaporeans donning. Heck, it looks like it’ll go great with jeans. Get this as a gift for that one friend that can’t stop sharing Squid Game TikToks with you.

4. Player tracksuit

If there was any one iconic outfit of the show, it’ll be the green tracksuit set that the main characters wore all through the season. Grab one for yourself to prepare for December’s sweater weather or for days where you just want to feel like a million bucks – maybe S$52 million.
