Halloween costumes inspired by Game of Thrones and Stranger Things

If you’re like me, you binge-watched Game of Thrones and Stranger Things this year. Maybe a few times.

Did you know you could dress like Daenarys Targayren or Arya Starck for Halloween? Or maybe you’d rather attempt Eleven or Robin in Stranger Things. All these options are possible because very cool versions of these costumes are available to order online and they are available in adult sizes, including plus size.

You’ll pay a little more for these costumes than if you chose to be witch or a ghost, but the look will be worth it, especially if you are going to a party or going out with friends.

Personally, I think Daenarys would be the hardest and most expensive look to pull off (besides the Night King) because you’d have to buy the wig and boots, and maybe a shoulder dragon, but how fabulous would that be!

And there are lots of different looks so you wouldn’t have to worry about wearing the same thing. There is the bridal D, the dragon queen D, the Khaleesi D (I like that one), and the Blue Dress D.

Not a fan? There are also options for the new Wonder Woman, for the Black Panther’s sister, Shuri (love her!) and for other super heroines and villains.

Speaking of Stranger Things, Eleven’s iconic 80s jumpsuit is going to be a popular choice this Halloween. It’s so symbolic — her first mall purchase, her really coming into her own personality. Can you relate? If so, maybe Eleven is your look this year, even though she’s a young girl.

Hey, it didn’t stop anyone from dressing as Hermione!






Robin Buckley was another kind of heroine in Stranger Things. She was smart and she was brave enough to come out to a friend when being gay wasn’t as accepted as it is now.

Some things are worth wearing ridiculous Scoops sailor uniforms over. Maybe you could accessorize it with an ice cream scoop, ha ha!

You know another Stranger Things costume that would be kind of different? You’d need four people for it. What if you all dressed like the guys in Stranger Things dressed as Ghostbusters for Halloween? How fun would that be? Of course, you’d spend all night explaining it.

Have you decided what/who you’re going to be this Halloween?
