Halloween is almost upon us and which series could provide a better seasonal costume than everyone's favourite sci-fi drama, Stranger Things?


Netflix’s science fiction-infused supernatural horror series returned to our screens with a monstrous fourth season last year year, as Mike, Eleven, Steve and friends continued their battle against mysterious forces in the town of Hawkins.

The series is well loved for its exploration of the paranormal and a creepy alternative universe called the 'Upside Down', but thanks to the 1980s setting there’s one other aspect that stands out from other shows, and that’s the costumes.

From Eleven’s (Millie Bobby Brown) pink dress in the very first season to the iconic Scoops Ahoy uniform worn by Steve (Joe Keery) and Robin (Maya Hawke) in the third, there’s plenty of outfits that are instantly recognisable from the show.

So, here’s our pick of the best Stranger Things costumes you can buy right now for adults and kids.
