"Besides the ever so popular witch, princess, dinosaur, and fairy costumes, every year brings a new blockbuster," FatherMag said. "While last year the Among Us costume was hugely popular, 2021 is the year of the Squid Game costume."

In B.C., Alberta, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec, and P.E.I., searches for costumes around the Netflix mega-hit were number one in terms of what to dress up as this month.

Over in Saskatchewan, Cruella was the top Google search for costumes, while Harley Quinn dominated in Newfoundland and Labrador, and the good ol' classic witch was number one in New Brunswick and Nova Scotia.
