11 stranger things costume

The third season of Stranger Things has arrived on Netflix, and as fans continue to note every detail of the new episodes, including Maya Hawke’s uncanny resemblance to her parents, some viewers are snapping up all of the Stranger Things-inspired merch. Re-creating the look of your fave character is a lot easier than defeating the Mind Flayer, and if you’re looking to rock Eleven’s colorful new wardrobe, we’ve got you covered.

If you haven’t consumed the entire season already, or you’re not exactly familiar with this latest installment of Stranger Things, this time around Hawkins, Indiana, has fully embraced the ’80s. From a mall-based setting complete with Steve Harrington in a sailor’s outfit to high-cut swimsuits in an array of neon colors, season three features no shortage of #TBT moments.

As for Eleven, naturally, she’s stolen the show, donning a number of neon-colored looks that feature suspenders, scrunchies, and pleated pants. Unfortunately, you may have to make an IRL trip to Hot Topic or Target to see if your store has Eleven’s exact romper in stock, but if you’re willing to get a little creative, we rounded up some alternative Eleven-inspired options.

Eleven Goes to the Mall With Her BFF

In season three, episode two, Eleven makes a trip to the mall looking totally chic in a colorful button-down shirt. The summer-approved style has flown off the online shelves at Target and Hot Topic, but as you’ll notice below, other retailers, including H&M, Urban Outfitters, and Mod Cloth, have similar ’80s-approved options. To complete the look, you can wear your hair in loose waves and add a couple of dainty bracelets; American Eagle has you covered for neon options and Target’s Wild Fable multipack is perfect for a mix-and-match moment.

Eleven Defends Her Friends in Style

It obviously can’t be proven, and it seems extremely unlikely, but we’d like to believe that Eleven’s fashionable suspenders contributed to Eleven’s powerful heroic efforts in season three, episode four. Wearing a pair of blue suspenders with another artsy button-up and matching scrunchie, the hero of Hawkins looked totally adorable and ready to defend her friends. To re-create this outfit IRL, you can grab your own pair of colorful suspenders, like the green ones retailing at Hot Topic, listed below, or you can put your edgy spin on the style and select a bib overall variation. Pair the suspenders with pleated pants and a half pony featuring a scrunchie and you’ve got yourself a look fit for a trip to Starcourt Mall.

After two full seasons of wearing Hopper’s and Mike’s hand-me-downs, Eleven finally got to go shopping in Stranger Things 3 – and the looks she picked were straight fire.

For someone who has basically lived her entire life in captivity, homegirl has some pretty epic style. I mean, when she walked out of Gap wearing that jumpsuit, I audibly gasped. It wasn’t just a look, it was a whole look.

So for all of you who still have thoughts of pleated jeans and vintage sneakers dancing through your heads, keep on reading. I’ve tracked down all the lookalike pieces and exact replicas, so that you can shop all of Eleven’s best Stranger Things 3 outfits.

Start shopping now, before they disappear forever.

The Graphic Jumpsuit


This graphic outfit is a lewk, yes, but it also represents El’s coming-of-age. After being controlled and imprisoned her entire life, she’s finally figuring out the person she really is inside – and that person really loves a bold geometric print.

Thanks to all that Stranger Things merch on the market, you can recreate this look with authentic ST pieces. Shop the replica shirt from Hot Topic (while it’s still in stock) or go all-in on the full jumpsuit from Party City.

The Paint Splattered Look


El slayed the Flayed in this outfit, but she also slayed those of us at home who appreciate a good outfit. She went bold in a paint-splattered button-up, mom jeans, and neon accessories. I truly believe that no one else could rock blue suspenders on this level, but by all means give it a shot.

This is one of the last outfits of the season, but it also might be her best. Even in 2019, the printed top and mom jeans are a winning combo. I’m not even going to talk about that blue hair tie, because I will start sobbing and that’s a promise.

6 Hopper & Joyce ‘Stranger Things’ Halloween Costumes That Are Scary Good

Chief Jim Hopper and Joyce Byers are the couple to ship on Stranger Things. Known as “Jopper” to their fans, these unlikely singles have slowly worked their way to a relationship throughout three seasons of the series. And then, just as fans thought it would finally happen (with a little pushing from Murray), tragedy struck. Hopper sacrificed himself to save Hawkins, and Joyce was left alone. But these Hopper and Joyce from Stranger Things Halloween costumes are a great way for fans to hold on to hope for Season 4.

One of the things that makes Joyce and Hopper so easy to do for Halloween is Stranger Things keeps their looks simple. In Season 1, Hopper dresses in pretty much one outfit for the entire run of episodes. There’s also not a lot of variation between the first two seasons. Because both characters are working-class, neither have a lot of budget to change clothes.

Season 3 is where the bigger changes occur. This is partly due to the weather — Seasons 1 and 2 are fall and winter, Season 3 is mid-summer. And yet, neither of them wear anything too difficult or unrecognizable. That’s good costume designing, and that’s great news for those looking for an easy couples costume this holiday season.

Chief Hopper


When viewers first meet Chief Hopper, he has one outfit – that of the town Sheriff. It’s how viewers see him throughout almost the entire first season. It’s also a surprisingly easy costume to put together. If you’re looking to play Hopper, you can’t go wrong with this look. Just one note: Mustaches are simply not optional when playing Hopper.

Angry Joyce


Joyce is much the same as Hopper when audiences first see her. She’s dressed for work at the Five and Dime on Main Street, she’s a struggling single mom, and she’s going a little out of her mind because her son is missing. A wig is a plus here, but not mandatory like Hopper’s mustache. Feel free to add Christmas lights to this get up for added flash.

Hospital Scrubs Hopper


Season 2 finally saw Hopper out of uniform, though perhaps not as he intended. His other major costume in Season 2 is the hospital scrub look after he winds up at the Hawkins lab.

Coupled Up Joyce


Season 2 found Joyce in a very different place. She’d found a boyfriend! She was happy. Her sons even grudgingly accepted him. This happy version of Joyce obviously didn’t last, but it was great while she was here, and cosplayers should celebrate by dressing in her best corduroy coat.

Hawaiian Shirt Hopper


This is the cosplay outfit of Stranger Things Season 3. The moment Hopper showed up in his would-be Magnum PI shirt on a date night Joyce forgot to show up for, the die was cast.

Russian Spy Joyce


As for Joyce, she went on the hunt this season when the magnets wouldn’t stay on the fridge. Before too long, Joyce was chasing Russians because it was the only way to keep her kids safe. For it, she slapped on a coral shirt, a striped button-down, and jeans.

And here’s the overshirt for tying around your waist. Joyce is already getting ready for the ’90s flannel look that would hit big five years later.

6 Eleven & Mike ‘Stranger Things’ Halloween Costumes That Are So ’80s

Ever since Stranger Things premiered in 2016, it’s been impossible to go to a Halloween party without someone dressing up as a Stranger Things character. Eleven’s Season 1 look has been a fan-favorite Halloween costume for a long time, but the third season just dropped on Netflix in summer 2019, so I have no doubt her Season 3 looks are going to be top costumes this year, too. But since Eleven and Mike are pretty much inseparable, you can’t have one without the other, so you know what? They would be a great idea for a couple’s costume! Make sure to grab your bestie or S.O. and get to buying because these Eleven and Mike from Stranger Things Halloween costumes are perfect for that Halloween party you have planned.

Eleven and Mike would be the best couple’s costume because their fashion was so on point in Stranger Things Season 3, especially if you’ve got love for ’80s fashion. The whole season basically took place at the mall, so you can’t not have the characters change up their styles, right?

1. Funky Fresh Eleven

One of the most fun moments in Stranger Things 3 was when Eleven and Max went shopping at the mall to spend a girls day together. Before Season 3, Eleven’s outfits were pretty bland because she had no experience with shopping whatsoever. That’s why her first shopping trip was such a big deal. She was finally able to experiment with her look. The result? This funky fresh outfit right here.


Recreating this look is pretty simple, since you can get Eleven’s actual dress at Party City.

You can add in some details to your look by letting your hair down and teasing it out a bit for some ’80s-style poof, putting on a few bracelets, and grabbing yourself an ice cream cone just like El.

2. Mall Brat Mike

Without spoiling what happens, I’ll just say Mike’s shopping trip with Lucas and Will was nowhere near as successful as Eleven and Max’s.

In the mall scene, Mike wore this yellow striped shirt, paired with some grey shorts. Sounds simple enough, right?


If you want to dress like Mike for Halloween, start with a yellow-striped polo shirt. This one from Zumiez is perfect.

Then, just add some grey shorts and you’re done!

3. Paint Splatter Shirt Eleven

Eleven continued to experiment with her outfits throughout the rest of Season 3. Another one of her iconic looks was this quintessentially ’80s, dark blue shirt with a paint-splatter design on it. El accessorized her outfit by adding some blue suspenders and tying her hair up in a half-ponytail.


To recreate this look, start with El’s paint-splatter shirt, which you can buy from Fansholiday for $27.

Add some blue jeans, like this pair from ROMWE.

Put on some blue suspenders.

Finish off the look with this yellow scrunchie.

4. Plain Polo Mike

And here’s the corresponding Mike look. We all know Mike loves his polo shirts. I’m serious. His whole collection of clothes in Season 3 consisted of a variety of polo shirts. I don’t understand how Eleven can have so many cool outfits, while Mike’s outfits are just so dang plain. Oh, well. Makes shopping for your Halloween costume easier, huh?


To get Mike’s look, buy yourself a teal-colored polo shirt, like this one from ClothingShopOnline, which is only $5!

Pair it with some black shorts.

Then, add some white and gold tube socks, which will definitely give you that whole ’80s vibe.

5. Black & Yellow Eleven

Eleven’s most memorable outfit from Season 3 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-dot-com. She wore a black and yellow dress shirt with a zigzag pattern and it looked so retro.


Thankfully, you don’t have to search countless websites for each piece of this outfit, because you can get most of the look from Spirit Halloween for $30. It comes with a shirt, blindfold, and suspenders. How cool is that?

You can also buy a pair of black pants from Aeropostale for just $16.

Don’t forget to add some fake blood under your nose to really nail your Eleven look.

6. Casual Battle Mike

In the big battle scene, Mike wore a green and yellow — you guessed it! — polo shirt. (Polo shirts were legit all Mike wore in Stranger Things 3. The season did take place in the summer, so whatever.) Mike’s simplistic style really paid off in the final episodes because, when you’re running from a bunch of monsters, you really don’t want a bunch of fancy accessories getting in your way.


If you want to recreate Mike’s outfit in the final episodes of Season 3, start with a green and yellow polo shirt.

Then, just add some black shorts. These athletic sweat-shorts from H&M are perfect.

I hope these Eleven and Mike costumes gave you some inspiration. Stranger Things has three glorious seasons, which means you have three seasons’ worth of Eleven and Mike outfit ideas to choose from, but I hope you go with these getups from Season 3, because they are fashionable AF and perfect to slay monsters in.

Now call up your best friend or S.O. and start buying, because if you recreate Mike and Eleven’s style, you’ll totally be the life of the party.

Amy Parris Morgan, who has also worked on the sets of Django Unchained, The Help, Key and Peele, and Deadwood knows a thing or two about how to make a costume (and a good one at that). “It’s a beautiful and laborious process to getting it right,” she says.

Amy Parris, costume designer for that one TV show Stranger Things, as well as Westworld and A Wrinkle in Time, agrees that it takes hard work and dedication to make an all-time great Halloween costume. In kindergarten, Parris dressed up as a unicorn by creating, with her mom, a centaur-like costume made of furry fabrics and a foam base. It gave her the appearance of being half-horse but made it impossible for her to sit down. “I was kind of embarrassed about not being able to sit at my desk,” Parris laughs. “But it was so original and unique, that’s what sticks in my mind. As an adult, it seems that Halloween costumes have become more about showing your body than being creative. And to me, that’s not as fun or as spirited as really putting something inventive together.”

Indeed, Halloween is the chance to become whoever (or whatever) you want to be for a day—without any weird looks. It’s just a matter of putting together the right pieces to create an awesome costume. In years past, we’ve seen plenty of Stranger Things and Glow costumes out on the streets (and on Instagram), so if you’re looking to re-create the look of Eleven after her full-on mall makeover or dress up as your own version of a Glow wrestler straight out of the ’80s, here’s how.

DIY Eleven—Stranger Things
Look at your local thrift shops (or surf Etsy) for a t-shirt that has a bright print or bold patterns on it. Feeling extra crafty? You can use fabric paint to re-create the black and yellow zigzag print shirt Eleven wore in season three. Hot Topic is selling a ($30) for a Starcourt Mall-inspired look. To finish the look off, Parris advises to add a couple of colorful scrunchies ($12 for a set of 10) as an accessory, don some classic Nike Cortez sneakers ($70), add Jordache jeans, and prepare to find the Flayed. Oh, and if you have bonus budget, we strongly encourage you to check out the Levi’s x Stanger Things collab collection.

DIY Glamorous Lady of Wrestling—GLOW
According to Morgan, pulling of a Glow look starts with the sneakers—so wear some Reeboks classics. Add a leotard by Capizio ($14) in any color you like, and grab some scissors for a necessary alteration. “You have to cut the hip line and take a couple of inches off to give you a great 80s hi-cut line. Add some glitter eye shadow (our favorites include Urban Decay Moondust ($22) and the NYX Glitter Goals Palette ($25). For a full-on ’80s Melrose look, add lace-trimmed socks ($13), a bubble skirt, and a pearl necklace.

Not into Stranger Things or glitter and leotards? Need inspiration on where to begin with an outfit of your own imagination? Here are Morgan and Parris’s top tips for making the most funny/ridiculous/scary/inventive costume this Halloween (without spending a fortune at a costume shop).
