It looks like Netflix's "Squid Game" inspired costumes are going to make an appearance at Halloween parties around the world.

Searches for "Squid Game costume" are outpacing other movie and television character costumes, according to a study by Design Bundles.

Although the series premiered on the streaming service just last month, Design Bundles found that the series' costumes are already at the top of the costume charts, accounting for nearly a third of the 11 most popular costume searches.

After "The Squid Game," main Halloween characters like Catwoman, Harley Quinn, Joker, and Spiderman completed the first five quests, and characters like Pennywise, Harry Potter, and Wonder Woman are also in the top ten, according to the results of Design Bundles.

Netflix recently told CNN that 111 million accounts had watched "The Squid Game" since its premiere in September, stating that the anti-capitalist drama is its "biggest series at launch."

Previously, another Netflix hit took the title of the biggest premiere ever: 82 million accounts watched "Bridgerton" in the first 28 days of its debut, the streaming giant said.

But "The Squid Game" quickly surpassed that number in a shorter period of time.
