“I’m being Harley Quinn for Halloween,” said everyone. Well, not everyone – there were Ken Bones, Jokers, Trumps, and Hillarys. But there was also a huge number of people walking around with buzzcuts wearing dresses because going as characters from Stranger Things was just as popular as you’d imagine. Specifically, if you were dressed as Eleven.
It’s an easy costume, really. Short hair? Check. Dead stare? Yep. Trickle of blood coming out of your nose? Easy-peasy. Pink dress? Ask your girlfriend. And if you really wanted to sell it? Head to the store and pick up some of Eleven’s favorite food: Eggo Waffles.
As evidenced by Google Trends, searches for “Eggo Waffles” hit an all-time high ahead of Halloween, which is pretty impressive considering most of us have been eating them well before Google was even a thing.
As you can see, Stranger Things has done wonders for the brand and for everyone who wanted to mail it in this Halloween and dress like an 80s kid. Who knows? Maybe next year people can dress as Barb if she ever comes back from the other side. .
