If you’re looking to create an authentic cosplay or already getting prepared for the Halloween season then why not choose a Stranger Things character cosplay this year? There are so many options to choose from when it comes to creating a Stranger Things costume. Whether you opt for a character such as Eleven or Vecna or want to create your own new character from the Stranger Things world, we’re here to help you bring the look to life!
Stranger Things Characters
We can’t talk about Stranger Things without discussing the main character, Eleven. We first meet Eleven in Stranger Things season 1 as a young, shy girl with shaved hair who doesn’t say much. Over the series’ we have seen Eleven develop into a teen and find her style. If you’re looking to create your own Stranger Things Eleven costume then the most iconic look would include her short brown hair, pink dress and blue jacket. Add a trickle of fake blood running from your nose and you’ll look just like this Stranger Things character!
Season 4 of Stranger Things saw lots of new characters including the likes of Argyle, Enzo and Eddie. The most talked-about however, is the villain known as Vecna. Vecna rules the show in the Upside-Down as he takes over the minds of his victims and kills them. His grotesque appearance makes Vecna a great choice for Halloween. Grab some face paint or latex to create his gruesome black vines and pair them with our White Blind Contact Lenses.
Check out our affiliates in action with their Stranger Things Vecna Makeup.
@Mulan_mtz has used our awesome White Mesh Lenses in her Vecna look. She has used liquid latex and body paint to create this 3D costume.
We love this look from @rainbowskiz solely using body paint and our White Blind contact lenses. Super scary!
Take a look at @SophieBaverstock’s awesome Vecna creation using silicone gel to mimic the vines and grooves of the monster's face.
If special effects makeup isn’t for you then don’t worry, there are plenty of simple Stranger Things makeup you can create.
If you’re looking for a Stranger Things costume idea then why not become Vecna’s victim? Get inspired by our affiliates Holly and Poppy who have opted for an 80s-themed look with a touch of gore!
@HollyMurrayMakeup has created a trio of Stranger Things looks! First up is a typical 80s-style look: heavy blush and a high ponytail. Next, Holly shows us her character infected with Vecna’s vines. Holly is using our White Blind Coloured Contacts to create the illusion of being possessed by the Upside-Down demon. Lastly, we see Holly as Vecna in his full form. Complete with body paint and prosthetics, she really brings this character to life!
@misspoppylocks has also created her own 80s character inspired by Stranger Things. Her character tells the story of her possession by Vecna. Poppy uses our White Blind Lenses and some fake blood to show how the villain possesses his victims in the Upside-Down. @MissPoppyLocks shows her demise with black lenses and fake blood dripping from her eyes much like Chrissy’s fate in the hit TV show.
Stranger Things Costumes
If you don’t fancy being one of the main Stranger Things characters then why not opt for Angela, the blonde-haired bully that takes a disliking to Eleven? @RubyMediaMakeup has used her SFX skills to bring to life the moment in the roller rink where Eleven attacks Angela with her rollerskate and ends up with a bloody face. Check it out here.
Looking for something different? Why not try a Hellfire Club look like @serinabinah? Serina has taken inspiration from the Dungeons & Dragons club t-shirts that feature at the beginning of season 4. Complete with devil horns, fins and sharp teeth as well as red body paint, this look is out of this world! We love this fresh take on a Stranger Things costume using our Yellow Avatar Lenses
