Eleven Costume

Here’s the story of our family’s Stranger Things Halloween:

Stranger Things is one of our family’s favorite shows.  When a child behavioral therapist suggested cutting my two-year old daughter’s hair short to curb a hair pulling habit, my wife was devastated.  Until, that is, we realized it made her look like Eleven.  All at once we knew what we had to do for Halloween this year.  We decided that our daughter would be Eleven, I would be Hopper, and my wife would be Joyce.

The Eleven dress was bought on Etsy, the blue jacket was a thrift store find, and the socks and shoes were from Walmart.  I did buy a backup “close enough” dress at a thrift store just in case the Etsy dress didn’t arrive in time for Halloween  (it was being shipped from the Ukraine).  That turned out to be a good idea, because while the dress did arrive in time for Halloween & was perfect, it didn’t quite arrive on time for our church Halloween party (the Etsy dress is pictured here).

  1. We had to bribe her with “nanny” (her word for candy) to take this picture, hence the sucker she’s holding.

    In fact, her word for trick or treating is “naw-naw nanny” (knock-knock candy).
