The older kids on "Stranger Things" had an epic group Halloween costume
While everyone and their uncles dressed up as characters from Stranger Things for Halloween (see all the Elevens, Amy Schumer as Dustin, this woman as a teenager as Barb – oh, wait, that one’s real!), the older kids on Stranger Things dressed up in a throwback group costume from the 1939 version of Stranger Things, otherwise known as The Wizard of Oz. Charlie Heaton, who plays Jonathan Byers, older brother to our beloved gone-missing Will Byers, and Natalia Dyer, who plays coming-of-age-and-bravery Nancy Wheeler, put together some excellent DIY Scarecrow and The Cowardly Lion costumes, while their friends went as the Tin Man and a gender-fluid Dorothy.
We LOVE like All CAPS WHY DIDN’T WE THINK OF THIS OURSELVES love the tongue-in-cheek, straight outta their closets versions of these characters.
Nancy’s fur-collared camel (urr, lion)-colored coat with matching Timbaland boots and a red bow a la the lion’s Emerald City makeover is so adorbs it’s breaking our hearts. And Charlie’s green sweater, brown sweats and well-placed burlap and straw is too, too perfect. Meanwhile, the Tin Man’s silver face paint paired with a grey suit is like, so brilliant we can’t deal. Like, most people who decide to be the tin man struggle to get together a boxy metallic clunker costume. But no need! This guy’s got it down, and though it took 1% of the effort, it’s 💯. And then Dorothy, in pig tails and red sneaks.
They’ve even got ToTo in there. 😂
The Scarecrow: And I’m sure to have a brain…
The Tin Woodsman: A heart…
Dorothy Gale: A home…
The Cowardly Lion: The nerve!
This group embodies the Halloween spirit better than any other celebs out there, and we bet they had the most fun.
