Searches for red boiler suits spiked by 62% in recent weeks. Some fans are choosing to go as the more villainous characters in the show, though, opting for red jumpsuits and fencing masks to transform themselves into the mysterious masked guards. Others, however, may want to don an orange dress, yellow tee and knee-high socks to become the murderous Red Light, Green Light doll seen in the first episode.
