1. Max Mayfield from Stranger Things Halloween costume
Stranger Things’ actress Sadie Sink definitely stunned the world with her portrayal of Max. Her character is one of the most iconic on the show, and it’s no wonder that fans are surfing the net looking for Max Mayfield costume ideas for Halloween. And wasn’t it super creepy in season four, when Max started to levitate? I don’t know about you, but I had a hard time falling asleep after that episode… Anyway, here is what you will need to get her season four look! Acquire a light blue track jacket like the one in the picture above, a white shirt with a red collar, blue jeans and a pair of cord headphones. If you by any chance happen to also find a retro cassette player, that would be superb!
2. 80s Max outfit
When searching for ideas on Stranger Things Halloween costumes, it’s no wonder that Max’s fashionable 80s look from season three is such a huge hit! Retro fashion is so in style nowadays! For the 80s look, you will need a striped t-shirt, high-waisted denim shorts and flashy leather belt. Also, borrow your brother’s skateboard to perfectly mimic this outfit! Hop on your board and off you go to fight monsters with your friends!
3. Eleven from Stranger Things Halloween costume
Well, hopefully they won’t put you in jail for this choice of costume, but to be honest with that mullet you can’t really know for sure… I mean, it’s not for everyone, you know? This Eleven outfit from season four definitely pays homage to grunge like nothing else. If you want to achieve this look you will need a long-sleeve blouse with a flower print, a blue v-neck shirt, white jeans and an oversized flannel shirt. Just be careful with the haircut! Better go with a wig if you absolutely want to adopt Eleven’s whole grunge outfit.
4. 80s Eleven outfit
Another rad 80s look for you! Go with Eleven’s season three mall rat outfit if you really want to be retro and fabulous. Since her iconic long-sleeve shirt might be hard to come by, or might be too expensive when you order it online, I will lend you in a tip on how to easily acquire it! Take one of your own, or your mother’s worn out blue or purple blouses. If neither of you have one, you can easily find this item in the thrift shop. Take out your old primary school paints, and use a brush to splash the colours you want on the shirt. So easy and cheap! Now you only need a pair of suspender pants and a scrunchie. Rad!

And if you happen to swing by the market, why not get a box of eggo waffles to absolutely embody this Stranger Things’ character! Yummy!

I don’t think I’ve heard of a person who didn’t love the character of Eddie Munson. He was just so awesome! Rebellious and peculiar, but with a heart of gold. SPOILERS up next. God, am I going to miss him. Let’s pay homage to Eddie and get his metal look for Halloween! Now with this outfit you will need to find/order the Hellfire club t-shirt. I can tell you it’s a 100% worth it! I bought it as a gift for my best friend, as he loves playing Dungeons & Dragons, and he couldn’t be happier.
