Netflix’s Squid Game series has taken over the public consciousness and every corner of the internet. The Korean drama tells the story of a group of financially indebted people who risk their lives in a survival competition for the chance to win a grand prize equivalent to $38 Million USD. With this simple yet interesting plot, the series has already conquered millions of viewers around the world, becoming the most-watched series in more than 90 countries in less than a month since its release on the streaming service. Inevitably, the Squid Game masks have become a highly sought-after costume piece, so naturally, the community of 3D printing makers and tinkerers have brought the iconic Squid Game masks to life!
Using 3D printing to prepare for Halloween is nothing new in the creator community. As October 31st quickly approaches, you can expect to see the whole gamut of Squid Game masks on Halloween night, in part thanks to the 3D printing. One of the primary platforms to download the STL files of the Squid Game mask is on the 3D printing marketplace Cults.
On the Cults marketplace, you can find a wide assortment of designs, not only of masks, but a broad range of accouterments for 3D printing that are related to Squid Game. In the series, the main antagonists coordinating the deadly competition wear dark masks with drawings of geometric shapes. As the hierarchy of power rises, we find the golden masks depicting different wild animals. Finally, there are also the humanoid masks with a polygonal effect. These original designs have captivated scores of people who want to get their hands on their own, bringing the fury of the series to real life.
For those who want to create their own masks, they will only need to have a 3D printer as well as the necessary material. Depending on the model and the capabilities of the machine, the masks can be printed in one piece, or in separate parts and then assembled. It is also important to follow the instructions of each creator to achieve the optimal final model adapted to each person. Discover all the different designs on the Cults website HERE.
