Tubi has been a surprise player in the streaming game recently, thanks to its broad variety, ease of access, and, well, the fact that it’s free. It’s a streamer for the people. Aside from Tubi’s many horror movies, the platform is celebrating October and Halloween with a costume contest and a bit of nostalgia. Check out their press release and information below.
Tubi is launching a contest to help revelers find the perfect costume for Halloween. Inspired by tthe show Degrassi and, more specifically, the iconic episode “U Got the Look” (which will celebrate its 20th anniversary this October), the contest will pay homage to the infamous “Whale Tail” look of the early 2000s, tapping into our current obsession with nostalgia and Y2K as people everywhere start thinking about creative costume ideas for Halloween.
If you recall, “U Got the Look” was the beloved episode where Manny Santos showed up to the first day of school wearing low-rise jeans, a midriff top, and her eye-catching, bedazzled blue thong (a.k.a. the whale tail). Tubi, the troublemaker of the streaming world, is partnering with actress Cassie Steele to recreate her iconic look as a limited-edition Halloween costume for Degrassi fans.
The Tubi Halloween Costume Contest
Between October 11 – 17, fans can visit

For revelers seeking something a little different, Tubi has also created a lookbook featuring characters from iconic Y2K movies & shows like Uptown Girls and Legally Blonde. All 50 contest winners will receive their own printed lookbook as a keepsake.
