My husband and I are obsessed with Stranger Things, and NO the kids haven’t seen it- that sh*t is scary yo!! But even if your kids haven’t seen it I guarantee they’ll be into the waffles of it all. Here’s what I did:

At thrift stores: Found a large pink dress with buttons down the front. Flipped it around. Figured if he needs more breathing room he can unbutton the back. Hot glued a peter pan collar cut from felt. Added a blue Members Only-type jacket. Bought him some white chucks and kelly green and gold striped athletic socks from American Apparel. Done.

While at the thrift store I found some shield-like objects that had sun faces on them. $7.99 for three, so I HAD to get them. I intended to make the Eggos from foam but these were so perfect and CHEAP. I removed the sun face fabric and hot glued tan felt circles and yellow felt cross hatch onto them. Covered cardboard squares with felt and hot glued to headbands for “pat of butter” hats.

“Pretty.”

Here is a 2-minute video explaining how I put everything together.  Let me know how YOUR costumes turn out!

Have a very happy Halloween everyone- stick with your friends, don’t go to unlit houses and steer clear of the Upside Down! xo
