SM Seaside’s 7 Scene-Stealing Halloween Ideas for the Family

Halloween will be livelier and fun as the city government now allows children to enter malls provided they are accompanied by a fully vaccinated adult while adhering to safety protocols at all times.

You can plan and design your own costumes together with the whole fam. You can do matching ones or group ones for maximum impact.

You can even jump into the hottest trend, The Squid Game, which gives off a unique blend of fear, survival, excitement, and thrill which are just perfect for a Halloween theme.

But if you’re more into the traditional themes and costumes, worry not, for we’ve got you covered too. For an epic costume idea, all it takes is an imaginative mind and creative hands.

Here we give you the easiest DIY Halloween Ideas that are very accessible and are all available at SM Seaside City Cebu.

1. Squid Game “The Guards”

2. Squid Game Edition “The Players”

You can buy the famous green tracksuit and wear the most comfortable Halloween costume but still leaves a strong impact. If you can’t find that tracksuit, simply shop at SM Seaside and pair a green top and bottom with a white T-shirt and add some numbers on them. You can even add some cuts and bruises using makeup to make it more believable.
