The first officially licensed Halloween masks and costumes based on the massively popular Netflix series Squid Game will be released in 2022 from Disguise, Inc., and we have an early look at what will be hitting stores, ahead of more reveals coming tomorrow.
Disguise, the costume division of leading toy and consumer products manufacturer, JAKKS Pacific, Inc., announced in early January that officially licensed Squid Game costumes and accessories were coming for the fall 2022 Halloween season, and photos of those new releases have now been unveiled on the company’s official website.
Disguise will design, market, manufacture, and distribute a range of costumes and costume accessories featuring characters from the show. These styles include a red Triangle Guard jumpsuit and teal “Player 456” Track Suit, as well as a Squid Games Front Man mask, and masks for Square and Triangle Supervisors.
Squid Game became a fast favorite on Netflix in 2021, with 142 million views in just four weeks, becoming the network’s most watched show to date. The Korean series centers on a contest for 456 financially ruined individuals to complete a series of children’s games in order to win the $45.6 billion prize. The easily recognizable contestant track suits, game supervisor jumpsuits, masks, and The Front Man mask were seen all over the world this past year at fan conventions and on Halloween, as fans created their own DIY versions, but now Disguise brings an officially licensed version to mass markets for the first time.
“Squid Game is a perfect addition to our vast array of costumes and offerings that cater to fans demanding a higher quality and a more detailed design that fully embodies the characters,” said Tara Hefter, EVP and GM of Disguise, Inc. “The show sets the stage for the perfect Halloween group dress up opportunity and we anticipate the sell in for this line to be incredible.”
All Squid Game costumes and accessories will be widely available at retailers in North America and APAC in store and online in 2022.
Disguise more recently announced earlier this week that their panel at Wondercon in Anaheim, California will take place on Friday, April 1 at 5:00 pm (PST), where they promise to reveal lots more collectibles and costumes to be released in 2022 from licenses including Nintendo, Sonic the Hedgehog, APEX Legends, and many more.
JAKKS Pacific will be giving an exclusive preview of all new figures and collectibles coming out this spring, along with a few surprises that are sure to thrill the crowd.
And get ready for a sneak peek at all new costumes coming to retail this fall from Disguise, from inflatables to adaptive options, and then stick around for the Q&A with members of the development team.
“JAKKS Pacific is proud to present the latest and greatest iterations from our top selling lines at Wondercon,” said Craig Drobis, SVP of Marketing “Get ready for a few surprises and some unexpected additions we created with fans in mind.”
The panel will thankfully be shared live on Instagram tomorrow, and we will be back here following for a full report.
