Stranger Things Wall Cosplay

Every year before New York Comic Con, I tell myself it's the last time I'm going. Then when it's all over, I do a 180 and can't wait until next year. Such is the case right now because I simply had a blast at NYCC this year! Thanks in part to this ridiculously simple cosplay I did of the Stranger Things alphabet wall.

I did not expect the overwhelming positive response I got for this cosplay. I'm pretty sure I'm not the first to come up with this idea, and I'm definitely sure I'm not the last as a ton of people have told me they're using this idea for a Halloween costume. So if you want to do the same, here's the stuff I used:

This is the shirt I used which I bought on Amazon. I bought a medium and it fits okay.


And these are the LED Christmas lights I used which are conveniently battery powered. 


And this is the picture I used from a Google search for "Stranger Things Wall."


So copy the letters onto the shirt with a Sharpie, just use some safety pins to attach the LEDs above each letter, put the battery pack in your pocket, and have fun!

As far as my fun goes, I tried to take pics with every Stranger Things cosplay I could find, so here's some of the awesome stuff I saw at New York Comic Con.










The hilarious thing is she has the exact same shirt!





Another exact same shirt! Great minds think alike! ;)



Levitating Eggo!


I also got to meet and do a photo op with Millie Bobby Brown from Stranger Things!


And lastly, I got to meet one of my idols Adam Savage who is also clearly a fan of the show!


He even tweeted a picture of it! Like I said, best New York Comic Con, ever!
