Stranger Things Costumes
Netflix’s hit show Stranger Things changed the game. It’s a mixture of sci-fi, drama, 80s nostalgia, and even horror. It features adorable middle-school kids, melodramatic teens, corrupt scientists, a gateway to a different dimension, and a terrifying monster with infinite rows of razor-sharp teeth. The Duffer Brothers created an instantly likable show for people of all ages. It’s a family show with a few scary moments sprinkled in here and there. Cheering on Will, Mike, Dustin, Lucas, and Eleven is a great time for the whole family. They really are a magnetic and charming group!
The friends have been through a lot of drama even though they’re not old enough to drive yet! One night, Will suddenly disappears. Next, they meet a new friend with supernatural powers (Eleven), then Dustin nurtures and takes care of a baby Demogorgon. (In Dustin’s defense, Dart was really cute at one point.) All of these characters, and many more featured in the show, have a unique look, perfect for recreating. This Halloween, all of these Stranger Things costumes will cause a commotion, just like the TV series. They’re all iconic, relevant, and recognized looks easily recreated with officially licensed Stranger Things Halloween costumes, or you can use clothing you already own mixed with a few new accessories. They translate perfectly into amazing group costumes. Go on an adventure with your crew but be on the lookout for a Demogorgon. It could be coming to a town near you!
Stranger Things Halloween Costumes
Win the costume competition with help from our wide array of Stranger Things Halloween costumes! They’re cute, easily identified, and fun to wear. Plus, we have all your favorite characters. Make people run for their lives in a head-to-toe Demogorgon costume or entice them to pinch your cheeks while dressed in a Dustin costume. Whatever character you decide to impersonate, you’ll look spot on and instantly loveable.
What has four petals, hundreds of teeth, sharp claws, and can jump from dimension to dimension? A Demogorgon and now you can transform into one. Don’t worry, it doesn’t involve a trip to the Upside Down or hatching from an oozing egg. The officially licensed and exclusive costume is made up of a jumpsuit with an attached chest piece creating an eye-popping disguise. The hood has a mesh inset to see out easily and the included hand and shoe covers complete the look. Wear it and become the strangest character from Stranger Things. (It’s an honor!)
Around here, we’re Team Hopper. Sure, he comes off as gruff and standoffish but he’s actually a sweetheart. He’s a great father figure to Eleven (because her Papa is a psycho), he’s very supportive of Joyce, (we hope those two become an official couple soon), and he’s a courageous protector to the entire town of Hawkins. The officially licensed Hopper costume comes with everything you see, even the hat and sheriff badge. Keep everyone safe from Demodogs and Demogorgons by impersonating our favorite police chief!
Everyone loves Dustin because he’s adorable; it’s as simple as that! He’s also a quick-witted little dude who’s great at cracking a joke. Dustin is easily a fan-favorite and you’ll be too when you impersonate him using this Dustin costume. It’s a great low-maintenance disguise because it’s just a t-shirt. Pick up the coordinating Dustin hat with attached curly wig to get the exact look pictured here. This trucker hat is the perfect accessory to your Stranger Things costume. Now, you're ready to hop on your Huffy for a D&D meet-up with friends!
Barb, our hearts break for you! You were a best friend to Nancy Wheeler, a great student, and we won’t let you be forgotten. Your image will live on with help from the Barb shirt. Fans can use it to create their very own Barb Stranger Things outfit, just pick up some high-waist jeans, a wig, and a pair of thick-framed glasses to complete Barb’s iconic look. Get ready to be praised and admired since Barb was the breakout star from Stranger Things. (Justice for Barb!)

We have El costumes from Stranger Things Season 1 and 2 so you can impersonate your favorite version of the pivotal protagonist.

DIY Light-Up Stranger Things Alphabet Wall
Who could forget the creepy yet memorable alphabet wall from Stranger Things? Everyone thought Joyce Byers was a complete nutcase because she believed her son Will was communicating with her through the walls and lights of her home—well, Joyce was right all along! The alphabet wall was one of the breakout stars from the Netflix series so why not add the Stranger Things lights costume to your group costume. Or, get a group of friends together to participate in the Stranger Things lights costume with you! It’s a perfect disguise for those interested in crafting and the supernatural.
Make your very own Stranger Things alphabet wall with our helpful DIY instructions. Below, you’ll find all the items needed and a step-by-step guide so you can create this costume in the comfort of our own home. It’s quick, easy, and will receive plenty of attention at any costume party!
- Three cardboard boxes
- Beige and brown spray paint
- Black paint
- Flower Stencils
- Small, multi-colored Christmas lights (Bulbs, please!)
- Black second skin suits
Step One: Grab the cardboard boxes and the beige spray paint can because it’s time to recreate Joyce’s drab living room! Shake up the cans of spray paint for a couple of seconds then aim them at the boxes. Start spraying approximately 6 inches away from the boxes for an even application. We recommend doing at least two coats for an opaque finish.
Step Two: Next, take the dark brown spray paint and the flower stencils to recreate Joyce’s memorable floral wallpaper. Strategically spread the floral stencils across the cardboard but don’t bother measuring them so they look perfect. We’re not going for perfection here—we’re trying to make it look realistic! You can even put the stencil half on and half off the cardboard for a quirky, authentic touch. Wait for the paint to dry before moving onto step three!
Step Three: Now it’s time to say the ABCs! Take the paintbrush and black can of paint, use the knowledge learned in your kindergarten class and start painting the alphabet across the dried floral cardboard. You can even use your kindergarten handwriting! Don’t bother making every letter perfect or even, just make sure the letters are large and legible so the alphabet can be seen from a distance.
Step Four: Lights, camera, action—it’s time to illuminate the wall! Grab the multi-color battery-operated string lights and drape them over the cardboard wall you’ve just created. Try your best to make each bulb hang above each letter. Attach the battery pack on the side of the cardboard or behind it to hide it. Insert the proper batteries and then watch it light up. It looks amazing in the dark!
Step Five: Now it’s time for the last step before going out there and showing off this praise-worthy costume! Grab two other friends, put on the all-black Skin Suits, and then pick up the re-assembled cardboard boxes. Each friend is responsible for carrying one box. Meet up with a friend wearing an Eleven costume to create the best Stranger Things group costume the world has ever seen. Assembling a costume is the easiest way to guarantee no one’s wearing the same costume as you!
