This Year's Top Costume Is Stranger Things' Eleven & Her Eggo Waffles

Halloween falling on a Monday means that a lot of costumes made their debut this past weekend. The most popular one, it seems, is the breakout character of Netflix's Stranger Things: Eleven.


Eleven, also knowns as El, is a young girl with psychokinetic abilities that escapes from a government facility and befriends a group of young boys looking for their missing friend. Along the way, they teach her things about the outside world.

Her experience leads her to discover a love for Eggo Waffles, the popular frozen breakfast item found in practically every grocery store in the country.

With the popularity of Netflix's show spreading like wildfire, it was only a matter of time before people started dressing up as the characters for conventions and Halloween.

Check out some creative takes on El this year. In the meantime, we're gonna see if we can hunt down a box of Eggos.
