Halloween weekend right around the corner — trust us, it’ll be here before we know it — and we know you've already binged the third season of our favorite Netflix show, which means it’s the perfect time to start preparing your Stranger Things costumes for Halloween.
Over the three seasons, we've seen plenty of iconic outfits that you could choose to dress up in. Halloween stores have prepackaged costumes of Eleven and a few others based off of the signature outfits from the first season, but to stand out from all the other pink dresses, go with some of the other looks we were given in seasons two and three.
We’ve gathered the the items you’ll need to really knock these looks out of Hawkins. And if you'd rather stick to the classics from season one, we have you covered, too.
A season 3 outfit that’ll be recognized by any Stranger Things fan is definitely Scoops Ahoy. Going as Steve and Robin in their sailor outfits will feel like dressing in a costume within a costume. I’m sure you don’t have an old sailor outfit lying around, so for this one, you’re better off purchasing the packaged costumes. As for Dustin and his Roast Beef shirt, you can buy your own, as well as his yellow-and-green Camp Know Where trucker hat.
Not to give any spoilers away to those of you who have yet to watch season 3, but Billy Hargrove becomes one of the main characters. I mean, the writers couldn't leave us hanging after Max drugged him with the syringe from the lab!
If you're looking to show off what's left of your summer bod for the other ladies on Halloween night, you can rock his Hawkins Community Pool tank. If you don't have a pair of red swim shorts, H&M makes official Hawkins trunks. Go the extra mile and throw on a wig that resembles his curly '80s hairdo. Don't forget your whistle!
In season two, we all remember when Mike, Dustin, Lucas, and Will dressed up as the original Ghostbusters gang to go trick-or-treating.
If you and your friends choose this look, it's pretty much a costume within a costume. Just be sure to rock similar bowl cuts and curly hair so that real Stranger Things fans will get the reference. Unlike the show's directors (who had to get permission from original Ghostbusters director Ivan Reitman to wear the trademarked costume), you can simply get one on Amazon.
They do sell a more authentic version of the jumpsuit, but it'll definitely cost you more. Whichever you decide, just don't forget your pillowcase to carry your candy.
It isn’t until Eleven heads to Chicago to learn how to control her powers — thanks to Kali and crew — that she gets a darker vibe with slicked-back hair. This look is really simple to pull off. Get a black sport coat, blue jeans (rolled at the bottom), and your beat-up white Converse Chucks, and apply dark makeup around your eyes. To top it off, tie a black bandana around your left wrist.
If you want her classic look, you won't need to go searching high and low for the exact pieces. The pink dress is widely available — and some even come with the green-and-yellow-striped socks. Get a blonde wig, a navy bomber jacket, white Converse sneakers, and a box of Eggo waffles to carry around to complete the look.
Be the leader of the pack. His outfits from both seasons are a little more common and aren't sold in a package, so you'll have to piece it together. First, get a shirt with horizontal stripes and pair it with gray pants. Adding this khaki jacket and JanSport backpack will complete the '80s style. For an added touch, rock this calculator watch.
The lovable Dustin will have friend groups arguing who gets to go as him on Halloween. His signature hat and Wisconsin shirt will be a dead giveaway. Throw on a denim jean jacket and khaki pants, and you're almost there. Herschel makes a light blue backpack that's similar to the one he's always wearing.
For shoes, you might already have old classic adidas sneakers that look worn and beat-up. If not, you can invest in some, because they're always a classic wardrobe piece. The cherry on top: his curly hair. For those who aren't blessed with natural curls, there's a wig that'll look perfect puffing out of his red, white, and blue trucker hat.
Lucas' signature wardrobe piece is definitely his jacket. Grab this similar brown cord jacket that has the fur collar. He also wears gray pants throughout the show with a light blue shirt that has piping along the collar. If you're having trouble finding his pinstripe backpack, improvise with a light blue one. Of course, you can't leave out the camouflage bandana. As an added touch, throw on a black digital watch.
Fans of the show really hold a special place in their hearts for Barb. With her '80s plaid top and her retro clear glasses, how can you not love her? You'll need to borrow your mom's old jeans or get your own pair. Rock a combat-style ankle boot with a blue puffer, and you'll be ready for the night. Just don't forget her wig!
