Regardless of if fans are born in the ’80s, ’90s, or the 20th century, it is hard to downplay the cultural impact that “Stranger Things” has on them, especially by the character, Eleven. From its premiere, the widely successful Netflix show instantly accrued popularity and became widely successful.
Also, with the positive responses from the recent season, “Stranger Things” is set to become one of Netflix’s most liked shows.
As with any good show, there is an array of choices for “Stranger Things” Halloween costumes. Whether it’s an October party, trick or treating with kids, or even a release party for a new season, dressing up as your favorite character is all part of being a fan.
Thankfully, “Stranger Things” has an impressively high number of memorable moments and characters, so finding a costume is fairly easy. However, choosing which character to be can be an arduous task. Nonetheless, fans who need inspiration can look to Eleven from “Stranger Things’ for Halloween costume ideas. The mysterious hero of the hit Netflix show has undergone quite a major transformation throughout the series, and this means that there are plenty of different looks to choose from.
But make no mistake; no matter what fans pick from Eleven’s wardrobe to emulate, everyone will know who they are when they hit their favorite Halloween party. It’s also not entirely terrible that Eleven gets to wear some super comfy clothes in “Stranger Things.”
T-shirts, sweatshirts, oversized windbreakers, and tennis shoes are staples of her wardrobe.
This signifies that if and when fans choose to dress as Eleven for Halloween, they’ll not only look amazing, but they will be comfortable while having fun.
Below are some of Eleven’s best costumes fans can put together quickly while on a budget and with total ease and comfort.
On The Hunt For Waffles (From Season One)
When Eleven first emerges from the confines of the lab, she’s on a mission.
However, before she starts, she has to get food. Like any child of the ’80s, Eleven finds that she has a certain love of fast food and, later, for waffles.
Fans can recreate her memorable first outfit with a Russell Athletic Yellow T-Shirt, a Nylon Windbreaker, a Moon Glow Fake Blood, Eggo Homestyle Waffles, Leotruny Over the Calf Tube Socks, an empty Eggo Waffles box as a cool prop, and a candy bucket. All these can be found on Amazon at affordable prices.
Helping Out Her New Friends (From Season Three)
By the time Eleven goes out into the world with her new friends, she undergoes yet another big costume change.
With the help of Mike, Dustin, and Lucas, she transforms into a girlier version of herself, complete with a pink dress and a fake blonde wig.
Fans can sport a windbreaker or a jean jacket to protect themselves from the chilly autumn air, just as Eleven stays warm during her mission in autumnal Hawkins.
They can recreate by donning Allegra K Women’s Contrast Doll Dress, Nuoqi Women’s Vintage Short Bob Wig, Augusta Men’s Blue Nylon Windbreaker, Women’s Classic Canvas Shoes, and Dasior Women’s Boyfriend Denim Jacket. They can also be purchased from Amazon.
Fighting The Demogorgon Eleven (From Season One)
By the end of the first season of “Stranger Things,” the fight against the Demogorgon heats up, and the only person who can save the town is Eleven.
Her battle clothes are pretty comfy, so fans should be able to pick and choose which style they want to sport as a battle-worn Eleven.
However, fans shouldn’t forget to splash some water on their face to make it look like they are sweating from a tough fight. They can also add a squirt or two of fake blood to seal the deal.
This look can be perfectly recreated by wearing the Eighties T-Shirt, Swag Point Men’s Bomber Jacket, Allegra K Men’s Plaid Shirt, Leotruny Over the Calf Tube Socks, and Moon Glow Fake Blood for the added pizzazz.
Black & Yellow Eleven (From Season Three)
Eleven’s most memorable outfit from season three was, by far, the outfit she wore during the final battle when she defeated the Mind Flayer.
Obviously, she wasn’t going to do that without looking bomb and battle-ready. She wore a black and yellow dress shirt with a zigzag pattern, and it looked so retro.
Thankfully, fans don’t have to search countless websites for each piece of this outfit because they can get most of the look from Spirit Halloween for an affordable price. This look comes with a shirt, blindfold, and suspenders.
Although suggested here, these aren’t all of Eleven’s amazing looks that can be recreated. There are other iconic looks, so fans have other looks to choose from for this Halloween.
