The Front Man of Netflix’s Squid Game is a shadowy figure, shrouded in an all-black ensemble. While one could opt to hand-craft the costume themselves, the option to purchase the individual pieces remains a convenient and budget-friendly alternative. This guide delves into the multiple options available for those daring enough to assume the guise of the enigmatic Front Man.
How to Dress Like the Front Man From Squid Game
The Front Man character from Squid Game wears six basic items, including:
- Overcoat: Make sure that it is hooded so that it blends in well with the mask
- Raincoat: Technically, the Front Man can wear either the overcoat or the raincoat, and the raincoat is a little lighter
- Black Pants: A nice pair of black dress slacks works best
- Mask: Choose a 3D-like mask that is made specifically for this character
- Black Gloves: Long black leather gloves give the costume a more finished look
- Black Shoes: Don’t forget the black patent leather shoes, which go perfectly with the rest of the costume
When it comes to the Front Man’s outfit, the large black hooded trench coat epitomized the look and captures the nature of the enigmatic villain. While you can use pretty much any trench coat of this color, I recommend that you select one that is made of a vinyl material to give it some sheen similar to how the character is presented on the show. It almost looks like a raincoat.
In addition to this core item, you will also need to add a pair of black pants and black leather gloves to ensure you capture the likeness of the Front Man accurately.
Front Man Mask
The mask itself is very detailed and has a geometric 3D look. The nose and lips stick out a little and the eyes have small holes in them both to see better and for extra comfort.
It is a unique mask made just for this particular character, and you should be able to find it in various party or costume shops. You can essentially call the Front Man the “man in black” because this is the only color he ever wears.

About the Front Man Look
The Front Man is in charge of the Squid Game and is rather difficult to understand, but like every other character in the series, he serves an important purpose.
He is dressed all in black and wears a geometric-shaped mask. He also wears an overcoat/raincoat at all times.
It is easy to look like him as long as you stick to black clothing. The black costume pieces give off a mysterious vibe that you’ll love playing up at your next Halloween or costume party.
One of the redeeming qualities of the Front Man costume is that, aside from the mask, the required garments are both commonplace and readily available. All that is needed is a selection of black clothing and a mask to complete the look. The simplicity of obtaining the necessary pieces makes this costume a practical choice for those looking to fully embody the enigma that is the Front Man.
