Netflix’s science fiction-infused supernatural horror series Stranger Things is back on our screens with a monstrous fourth season, as Mike, Eleven, Steve and friends continue 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 from the very first season to the iconic Scoops Ahoy uniform worn by Steve (Joe Keery) and Robin (Maya Hawke) in the third, there’s a variety of costumes instantly recognisable from the show.

So here’s our pick of the best Stranger Things costumes you can buy right now for adults and children (although we don’t recommend letting younger kids watch the show). Want to read more about the new season? Here’s our guide to the season four episode lengths, plus our in-depth Stranger Things four part one review.
