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!

  2. I'm really enjoying the design and layout of your blog. It's a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a developer to create your theme? Fantastic work! itunes login
