Tzuyu looked like a dark and sexy character as she entered as the titular character from Maleficent.
Jeongyeon was the Mad Hatter from Alice in Wonderland which she chose just because she enjoyed the character and costume.
Momo, dressed up as Boo from Monsta Inc as they share a resemblance. Momo said, “She is one of my favorite characters, and many people told me that I look like Boo when I have my hair in pigtails.”
Dahyun stole the show with her spot-on Genie costume. She explained the reason behind her cosplay as Aladdin, “I dressed up as Genie from Aladdin. Like last year’s fan meeting’s Annabelle costume and make-up, I wanted to try something that no one has and I wanted to make ONCE laugh. I was kind of worried that ONCE might not like the costume, but they all loved it so I was happy.”
Jihyo decided to go for a costume that even her group mates did not know. She chose Miguel from Pixar‘s Coco. Jihyo explained, “The other members didn’t seem to know who I was, but I liked the movie so decided to go as this character. I wanted to do something different, like Pennywise, Farting King Pung Pung (a Korean Kids’ animation) or a character from the Korean Webtoon, Strangers from Hell.”
Chaeyoung also dressed up as a character from a popular movie. This time she chose Edward from Edward Scissorhands, impressing with her cool claw-like fingertips. Chaeyoung said, “I liked the black leather and the fashion personally, and I loved the movie too. After I wore the costume and had my make-up on, everyone told me I really looked like the real Edward.”
While Nayeon was a messy-haired Daesu from the popular movie Old Boy. She stated, “We all prepared the costumes we wanted. I dressed up as a character called Oh Daesu from the movie Old Boy. I had not watched the movie before but Chaeyoung told me that it was an awesome movie, so I chose that character for my costume.”
While the others were over the top, Mina chose to go as an angel as it was simpler but nonetheless beautiful.
During the first Once Halloween that was held in 2018, the TWICE’s leader Jihyo’s costume had been heavily debated and criticized by fans, as she wore a long brown dress with fringe and with a matching brown fur coat.
Jihyo also had her face painted with various marks that she paired with a set of pigtail braids and a head ornament made of feathers. Some people said that her costume was meant to be like Princess Mononoke, however, her stylist got her costume wrong.
Other fans believed that she was meant to look like a stereotypical “Native American” or “First Nation” person not as Princess Mononoke. However, these types of “Indian” or “Native” costumes are offensive as they treat the heavily stigmatized culture and history of oppressed people as a prop or aesthetic. First Nations women have been disproportionately used and abused throughout history, thus wearing their cultural garb with a slash on the chest as a costume can become a sensitive topic. Fans have identified that Jihyo and her Korean stylist team may be unaware of the issue.
Dressed up in Halloween costumes, from funny and cute to sexy and scary, the members of TWICE succeeded in stealing the attention of their fans. Since the first Halloween-themed fan meeting, ONCE have been eagerly waiting to see what the members would wear next for their Halloween costumes.
Attendees and TWICE fans were delighted and entertained to see the members’ appearance during the fan meeting in Halloween costumes that looked quite unique. And ONCE did not seem to want to lose to their idols either.
Other fans who came to the event were also dressed in Halloween costumes. A group of fans went on stage dressed up like Nayeon when she hid during a V Live broadcast because she was caught off guard wearing a robe and a facemask.
On Twitter, fans left many comments related to TWICE’s costumes at the Once Halloween fan meeting.
