Forget the cliché of dressing up to scare people this Halloween – leave that to the rookies!
Round up your squad and slay all the upcoming Halloween parties and events by getting on the Hallyu wave (that’s the Korean wave for you non K-Pop fans!). Trust us, you’ll have more Instagrammable moments when you’re dressed up as some of the world’s hottest K-pop bands versus as another ho-hum vampire or ghost. Here are three K-pop band picks that you can creatively yet easily dress up as with all your friends.

K-pop fans will be fawning all over your group during Halloween when you mimic the iconic looks of the legendary BTS. Their recent music video, “Idol,” dropped in August this year and broke Taylor Swift’s record for biggest music debut on YouTube (sorry, Team TayTay!). Their music video looks are a riot of colors so don’t be shy with bold tints and crazy patterns. Pick some very colourful suit and pant combinations, predominantly white kicks, and varied pink-hued wigs and you’ll easily get the suave, creative, and all-star looks of Jin, Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, V, and Jungkook. We can’t guarantee 200 million views for your IG post but amp up your costumes with some Korean pop star attitude and you’re ready to roll!

This one is for the ladies! Glam it up with your favourite BLACKPINK gals by taking inspiration from their “Square Up” EP album cover outfits. Be prepared to sparkle and dazzle this Halloween – think sequins, sequins, sequins! Opt for sparkly cropped tops – either go matchy-matchy with sequined shorts or opt for simple bottoms that show off your legs. You can add on white fishnets and OTT earrings while keeping your hair silky-straight and long for added drama. Your squad will be stunners on all the Halloween red (or black!) carpets around Singapore once you pull off the fun yet sophisticated looks of Lisa, Rosé, Jisoo, and Jennie! Now, those are some serious social media creds!

Here’s a cute ensemble outfit that will surely get even the laziest of us out of the house and into the streets for all the Halloween festivities. Have your besties to pull off the most chill look from Irene, Seulgi, Wendy, Joy, and Yeri by getting all prettied up in pink! The idea is to look comfy yet still glammed up – put on a jersey top and shorts, oversized t-shirts with a statement print or stripes, cotton or silk nightgowns and top them off with fluffy eyemasks. Add some mellow power with pink socks and bathroom slippers for added effect. Don’t forget dramatic eyelashes and red lipstick because we all go to sleep like that (LOL!!). Act all aegyo in all your Halloween pics and you’ve got the Red Velvet look down to a pat!
