He’s clever and will negotiate his way out of a situation if possible.

Dr. Alexei Cosplay Costumes
Dr. Alexei is your typical scientist. His clothes are nothing fancy, but they are professional. The Russians in Stranger Things want everything to be precise, and in order, so it’s no wonder Alexei’s outfit is the same. He has to make sure he looks presentable for his boss and is also able to move around his workspace comfortably.
If you want to make this outfit stand out, make sure it isn’t brand new. For most of the show, Dr. Alexei is Hopper’s hostage, so he’s scruffed up a bit. On the show, Alexei stumbled through the woods and got knocked down multiple times. It’s no surprise that his clothes are a little dirty. Pair the battered look with a red Slurpee, and you’ll look the part!
