7 Stranger Things costumes that turn Halloween upside down

You might have noticed an influx of immigrants from Hawkins, Indiana at Halloween parties and out trick or treating this year, thanks to the global phenomenon that is Stranger Things.

I got a BA in journalism from Central Michigan University - though the best education I received there was from CM Life, its student-run newspaper. Long before that, I started pursuing my degree in video games by bugging my older brother to let me play Zelda on the Super Nintendo. I've previously been a news intern for GameSpot, a news writer for CVG, and now I'm a staff writer here at GamesRadar.
