Stranger Things Characters
Eleven has burgeoning psychic powers, and every day she gets stronger and stronger! She's dedicated to her friends, and wants to protect them. While hiding from the authorities, she wears a pretty pink dress and a wig, and once she grows up a little bit she gets her own style with dark hair and a black jacket.
Dustin is the goofiest and funniest character of the four main boys, and like his actor Gaten Matarazzo, this character has cleidocranial dysplasia, a general skeletal condition which mainly affects the cranium. Dustin has a lisp, but his thick, curly hair, his goofy style, and his unbeatable optimism was a hit with fans.
Chief Jim Hopper is tasked with leading the hunt for Will when the boy is lost in the Upside Down, but his investigation leads him to finding much more than he ever imagined. He's a hard man who has hard habits, but he won't stop until he finds a way to bring Will back, discover the secrets behind the huge government building near Hawkins, and keep his town safe! As a hard-working man, he looks ready for anything in a working police shirt and Sheriff's hat!
Monsters are real in Hawkins, and this creature has come from the Upside Down to feast on children and adults alike! With a creepy opening mouth and lumbering limbs, this creature is the perfect way to get dressed up for a Halloween of costume parties and trick-or-treating, and is great for group costumes, as well – those kids will be scared out of their wits!
While Barb has a small part in the first season, the Demogorgon quickly finds her on her own and captures her, resulting in her death. Fans were outraged her story never came to a conclusion, so season two has her friend Natalie go looking for her, and discovers much about the conspiracy surrounding her home town of Hawkins.
Joyce is Will's mother, and she'll do everything she can to try and find her son again! She becomes wild with fear, which leads to her stringing up lights inside her home and getting incredible messages from her son – it's one of season one's legendary scenes, and a great way to describe a character who will do anything to keep her family safe! Get an axe and a shirt and dress up as this strong female character!
