I'm placing bets now – Halloween 2019 is going to look like a behind-the-scenes shot from the Stranger Things set. The third season came packed with a full range of costume ideas to choose from. I mean, basically every character is wearing one: Steve and Robin in their Scoops Ahoy uniforms, Dustin in his Camp Know Where getup, and Eleven in her oh-so-'80s outfits. With all the Stranger Things 3 merch being dropped right now, costume shopping will be a breeze. You can buy the exact pieces from the movies, like Hopper's iconic pink shirt and Billy's swim trunks, so your costume will be 100% authentic. Now that you've been properly briefed, check out all the best Stranger Things costume ideas you can DIY.

Mrs. Wheeler - Planning to lay a thirst trap this Halloween? Follow in the footsteps of the queen herself, Mrs. Karen Wheeler. This smokin' hot look worked on Billy, so I'm sure it'll help you score a hottie, too. (Bonus points if you find a vagina necklace.)What you'll need: Swimsuit With Ties, $18, H&MSHOP NOW
Netflix
Robin, Steve, and Dustin - Name a more iconic trio – I'll wait. See? You can't, which is why this is the perfect group costume for a three-person squad. The sailor costumes and denim vest you can buy easily, but good luck replicating Steve's famous hair. They don't call him Steve "The Hair" Harrington for nothing. What you'll need: Steve Stranger Things Scoops Ahoy Costume, $50, Spirit HalloweenSHOP NOW
Netflix
Alexei - Honor (spoiler alert!) our fallen Russian friend, Alexei with his favorite drink of all time – a cherry slurpee. NOT strawberry, to be clear. After that, all you need is a pair of aviators, a button-up, and an innate purity that melts the hearts of the nation. What you'll need: Aviator Glasses, $6, ZenniSHOP NOW
Netflix
Billy Hargrove (Pre-Flaying) - Start growing your mullet now, because Billy's lifeguard ensemble is the ultimate Halloween costume (or lack thereof). Slip on the official Stranger Things x H&M Hawkins Pool swim trunks, then throw on a whistle and you're ready to save some lives – or yell at kids for running, whatever.What you'll need: Hawkins Pool Swim Shorts, $18, H&MSHOP NOW
Netflix
Eleven - Eleven's steady serving lewks for all of ST3 (which she fully deserves after two seasons of Mike's and Hopper's hand-me-downs). This Levi's x Stranger Things shirt is sold out online, but you can probably find a lookalike at your local thrift shop. Then all you need is an american flag and a supermarket for that perfect Insta shot.What you'll need: American Flag Bandana, $7, Amazon SHOP NOW
Netflix
The Party (Plus Nancy and Jonathan) - Group costume, anyone? Every person in your crew can channel their favorite Stranger Things character after one quick trip to the thrift store. Basically, just throw on a pair of Chuck Taylors and a T-shirt – they'll get it. What you'll need: Red Chuck Taylor All-Star High Top, $55, ConverseSHOP NOW
Netflix
Suzie and Dustin - Out of all the two-person costume ideas this season supplies, this one is my favorite by far. Rock a comfy nightgown and pigtails for your Halloween look. What you'll need: Floral Nightgown, $17, SearsSHOP NOW

Robin - The internet has already memed this iconic scene, which means it's basically Halloween gold. Fill out your whiteboard to keep score of who sucks, cover it in Russian script, or go all-in and make yourself into your favorite Robin meme.What you'll need: Robin Stranger Things Scoops Ahoy Costume, $45, Spirit HalloweenSHOP NOW

Billy Hargrove (Post-Flaying) - After Billy becomes one of the Flayed, his look still makes a great costume. Just add a white tee and a Niagara Falls hat to the original Billy costume, then roll up to the party with an Icee in hand.What you'll need: Stranger Things T-Shirt, $10, H&MSHOP NOW
