Welcome to pop culture costume-ception, since this idea is one Halloween costume inside of another Halloween costume. For this idea all you need are three other friends and the ability to buy Ghostbusters costumes. To make sure everyone knows you’re the Stranger Things gang, please remember to have everyone bring a pillow case (which will serve as a faux candy bag) with them.
And, as TVLine points out, if you do have a designated Lucas Sinclair (Caleb McLaughlin), he’s the Venkman of the group.
Speaking of the upcoming Stranger Things season 2, the “Party” and their Ghostbuster get-ups are not the biggest costuming choice of the newest episodes. No, that honor goes to Eleven’s new hair, which everyone will be talking about by the time Stranger 2 rolls around.
For this costume all you need is a very 1980s curly brown wig, overalls, a boxy jacket, and an honest “WTF?” expression.
This recommendation is simply here to remind you there is a third Wheeler child. Nancy and Mike might be out in these Hawkins streets fighting other-worldly demons, but Holly Wheeler (Tinsley Price) is doing the hard work, noticing hands pushing through the walls of the Byer household and generally being adorable.
A Nancy, Mike, and Holly Halloween (Hollyween?) costume is the wholesome friend costume the world deserves.
Lucas is stuck in the upsidown!! @noeudnoir did such an amazing job on the decorations for her Stranger Things Halloween party 😍💖 #lucascosplay #lucasstrangerthings #lucassinclaircosplay #strangerthingscosplay #elevencosplay #eleven #strangerthingseleven #elevenstrangerthings #strangerthingsmike #strangerthingsmikecosplay #netflix #netflixcosplay #johnathanbyers #johnathanbyerscosplay #80s #80skids #thedufferbrothers #strangerthingsparty #halloweenparty
