How to put together the best "Stranger Things" costume.

Posted by

As we get closer to Halloween, we want to give you tips and tricks to make your costume really stand out. This week: how can I get the perfect "Stranger Things" costume? While we might have a long ways to wait for season 3 -- it's never to early to pay homage to some of the coolest characters in recent television history. Here are some ideas to make you and your friends look like you came straight out of Hawkins.

1. Eleven

If you're being Eleven: we have plenty of options. You can be Eleven from season 1, which includes a pink dressjean jacket and a blonde wig paired best with a box of Eggos. If you prefer her season 2 outfit, try some overalls and a plaid shirt. If you're more adventurous -- go for a hospital gown and bald cap. Don't forget to pair each version with her classic eleven tattoo and some fake blood.

2. Joyce

If you're more of a Winona fan, try this jumpsuit and wig. Pair with some string Christmas lights and our light-up earrings to be the perfect Joyce.

3. Steve

Channel the famous hair of Chicago-native Joe Keery with our Steve wig. Pair with a spiked baseball bat and tan jacket to complete the look.

4. Barb

If you're more of a Barb -- pair this Barb shirt with a wig and large glasses.

5. Sheriff Hopper

Be the leader of the group with a Sheriff Hopper costume. Pair a fake mustachesheriff hat and badge to be Hawkins' finest.

6. Dustin

You can piece together the perfect Dustin costume at Chicago Costume. Pair his classic Waupaca, Wisconsin shirt, his red, white and blue trucker hat, and a curly wig.

7. Billy and Max

If the original crew isn't your style, go for the new kids on the block. For Billy, try our blonde 80s mulletaviator sunglasses and a fake cigarette. For Max, try this auburn wig.

8. Demogorgon 

And finally for the more adventurous crowd, be the life of the party with our deluxe Demogorgon mask and costume.
