If fashion e-commerce site Lyst is right, the character Eleven from Netflix’s Stranger Things is going to be one of 2016’s most popular Halloween costumes. Lyst recently saw in uptick in searches for pink-collar dresses and blue jackets, Eleven’s most memorable look in the first season of the show. (Barb will also be a popular choice, naturally. Ruffled plaid blouses FTW.)
Meanwhile, at Fashion Week, we spotted a chic show-goer who looks just like a real-life version of Eleven.
Snapped outside of the Paskal show at Paris Fashion Week, photographer Alexandra Serafimovych has the same boy-meets-girl stylings as Eleven (played on the show by the incredible Millie Bobby Brown), down to the shaved head and ’80s wristwatch. She’s even got Eleven’s lean build and powerful stare. It’s just all there, and yet the stylish Serofiwich doesn’t look like she’s in costume really at all. Pretty cool.
The moral of the story? Whether you choose to dress up as a Stranger Things character for Halloween, or take on some of Eleven’s gender-mixing moves in real life, you really can’t go wrong. Just don’t miss the opportunity to act like a total badass; all quiet, knowing, and possibly able to break stuff with your mind.
