1. Make Your Squid Game Costume
You may notice that last year's Halloween suddenly becomes "Squid Game" Halloween. This popular Korean drama is a Netflix Top 1 series in 90 different countries, reaching 111 million viewers last year. Since it became so popular, people recreate classic games in the series or the costumes that the characters wear. This year, prepare 'Squid Game' iconic costumes for your Halloween, like the player's green tracksuit with a game number on it or the guard's bright jumpsuit with a white square, circle, or triangle on a black mask. Here, we'll teach you how to DIY your guard costume this Halloween with the YouCam Perfect app without buying a whole new outfit .
- First, choose the photo of you wearing a bright jumpsuit (if you have one!) or any other outfit.
- Then, cut out your face and adjust it to dark black.
- Next, add the shape you want to put on your face. It could either be a circle, triangle, or square.
Congrats! It's easier than you think! You just finished your Squid Game Halloween costume, and the last step is to save the photo and share it with your social media followers to celebrate this spooky season!

3. Virtual Trick or Treat
For both children and adults, no Halloween celebration is complete without trick or treating for candy. So why shouldn’t the same be said for our Halloween photos?! Use YouCam Perfect’s Halloween animated effects to recreate this traditional Halloween practice in your photo. This effect combines classic Halloween elements with candy concepts making it completely suitable to decorate your trick or treat photo with.
4. Beware of the Grim Reaper
Some of us go all out on the spooky, creepy nature of Halloween — no princesses and ponies here for you! For the ultimate scary Halloween look, turn yourself into the Grim Reaper. When you’re taking a photo to turn into this scary character, make sure your face is dark and grim. Better yet, use a jacket hood or black cape to completely cover your facial features. Then, darken the photo, even switching out the background if needed. To add that extra YouCam Perfect pop, place skull and scythe stickers on your image to make sure everyone knows who you are. Your friends and family will be shaking in their boots when they see this photo!
5. Turn Into a Green Monster
Many of the quintessential Halloween characters are known for their green skin hue. Think of the Hulk, the Wicked Witch of the West, Shrek, and Gamora. With just a few taps, you can turn into your favorite scary character by changing the color of your skin using the HSL tool.
To turn yourself into a green witch, or any color really, start by uploading a photo to edit. Next, add the same photo again. Then, click Tools at the bottom of your screen and then navigate to the Cutout tool from the bottom toolbar. Cut out all the parts of your skin that are showing that you want to change colors. Finally, adjust the Hue and Saturation in HSL until you have the perfect mix. From there, your skin will be transformed for that perfect Halloween look!
