The Best Halloween Costume Ideas for 2021

Not just the guards from ‘Squid Game.’

Halloween is almost here, and if you haven’t decided on what to dress up as this year, we’ve gathered some of the best costume ideas for 2021. The list below features options inspired by some of this year’s most memorable red carpet looks, the most meme-worthy moments, as well as the most hyped TV shows and blockbuster movies.

For fans of Netflix‘s smash-hit K-drama Squid Game, dress up as one of the players in an all-green tracksuit, or wear the guards’ red uniform with a black fencing helmet. You can also go all out and pose as the Front Man or the giant killer doll.

Another series you’ll want to take inspiration from is HBO Max‘s Gossip Girl reboot. To channel Constance Billard’s richest teens, go for a preppy outfit paired with your favorite handbag and accessories.

If you’re looking to go the extra mile, recreate Kim Kardashian‘s faceless look from the 2021 Met Gala, or become Harley Quinn for the night and join the Suicide Squad.

Keep scrolling to see some of the most popular Halloween costume ideas for 2021. While you’re here, check out these easy Halloween makeup ideas.
