Maxine Hargrove, better known simply as Max, walks into the second season of the popular Netflix series, Stranger Things, with confidence that cannot be ignored! This girl isn’t what you’d expect, she has a rough and tough way about her. You should see her on a skateboard! Max moved from California all the way to Hawkins, Indiana, but she and her stepbrother Billy aren’t happy about the relocation. You can tell by her style that she’s comfortable with who she is. Get the same look of the latest character from Stranger Things season 2 with this Max costume guide.
Cosplay Max, the latest Stranger Things cast member, by wearing a Baseball Shirt underneath a Yellow V-Neck Pullover and a pair of Light Blue Jeans. Keep the look simple, just like Max, with a pair of Red Vans and her Skateboard. You’ll also need red hair just like Max’s! So grab a box of temporary Red Penny Hair Dye to get as close to her look as possible!
Maxine, who prefers to go by Max (or her arcade alias–MadMax), doesn’t wear anything too fancy. She much prefers her laid-back California look. That means you can make her character your next Halloween costume or cosplay a lot faster than you think! Start by buying a baseball shirt, unless you already have one. Throw on a pair of your own light blue jeans, and head to the costume shop for a red wig or pick up temporary red hair dye. Max is always wearing her yellow pullover, so check at a thrift store for that piece in particular. You must get the Vans shoes and skateboard online to ensure you get Max’s look just right!
Even though she’s new to the Netflix show Stranger Things, you can add the rest of the characters to Max’s costume to form an awesome group cosplay! Get your best buds to dress as Eleven, Mike, Dustin, Lucas, and Will to make up the entire group of friends from Hawkins Middle School! Send us a picture of your look to add to the cosplay gallery on Costume Wall!
Maxine Hargrove moved from California to Hawkins, Indiana when her mother remarried. Neither she nor her step-brother Billy is too pleased about the move. But, Max decides to give the new town a go and finds herself in the arcade room playing Dig Dug. Later, Dustin realizes that someone under the name MadMax had beat his Dig Dug score and isn’t too happy about it! Max is a tough girl and you can tell that by how she dresses. She isn’t like the other girls at school. She’s brave and adventurous, which will most likely lead to her finding trouble during the second season of Netflix’s Stranger Things.
When Max came into science class for the first day and the teacher introduced her, Dustin Henderson quickly realized she was the one who beat his score at Dig Dug! The group of boys follows her after school to figure out more about her, but they creeped her out and she left a note saying so. Though Max is a major new character in the show, there’s no telling what surprises she’s going to bring to the show.
