Eleven (Punk) Costume Tips & FAQs
Get ready for season 2 with Eleven’s Punk Style Costume Guide FAQ! Get the details on all the essential information for dressing up as the telekinetic character Eleven from Stranger Things Season 2 in her punk style.
To dress like Eleven in her punk style, you'll need a black, oversized jacket with a band or edgy graphic on the back. Pair this with a black, oversized T-shirt or band shirt, and black or dark-colored jeans with rips or distressed details. Complete the look with a pair of black combat boots or high-top sneakers.
To create Eleven's punk-style makeup, apply dark eyeshadow in shades of black, gray, or dark purple, focusing on the outer corners of your eyes and underneath your lower lash line. Add a touch of black eyeliner and mascara to emphasize the eyes. Keep the rest of the face relatively natural, with a light foundation or BB cream, a touch of blush, and a nude or pale pink lip color.
In her punk style, Eleven has short, wavy, brown hair. If your hair is already short and wavy, you can style it to match Eleven's look. If not, you can use a short, wavy brown wig. To complete the hairstyle, add a black or dark-colored bandana, tied around your head with the knot at the back.
Eleven's punk style is a significant departure from her usual appearance, and it represents her rebellion and search for self-identity. Memorable moments include her interactions with Kali and the other outcasts, as well as her decision to return to Hawkins and help her friends. Some memorable quotes are "I can save them" and "Bitchin'."
To complete your Eleven Punk Style costume, consider adding punk-inspired accessories such as studded bracelets, leather cuffs, or layered necklaces. You can also carry a fake nosebleed prop or use fake blood to create a small trickle of blood from your nose to reference Eleven's telekinetic powers. If you want to make a group costume, team up with friends dressed as other "Stranger Things" characters or as members of Kali's gang.
About Eleven (Punk)
Eleven is one of the most popular characters from the Netflix series, Stranger Things. She was held captive in the Hawkins National Laboratory with experiments and tests run on her over and over again. After her escaped, Eleven became extremely close with Mike Wheeler and his other friends—Dustin Henderson, Lucas Sinclair, and Will Byers. After fighting against the monster, Eleven was transferred to the Upside Down which was actually an alternate reality of Hawkins Middle School.
Eleven had to stay away from police officers and special agents because they were spinning a story that she had mysteriously disappeared. Chief Jim Hopper found Eleven and decided to keep her safe inside a small cabin, but due to Eleven’s history with confined spaces, she didn’t last in there very long. She retraced her steps to meet up with Eight, who now is known as Kali, a child also held at Hawkins Laboratory. When they meet up, she joins Kali’s gang and takes on their unique appearance.
