The Demogorgon from Dead by Daylight and Stranger Things

In the Netflix show Stranger Things, the Demogorgon is a faceless monster of the Upside Down that forces its way into Hawkins, Indiana, killing Barbara Holland, and hunting Will Byers. The Demogorgon is eventually killed by Eleven. In the game Dead by Daylight, the Demogorgon debuted in Chapter XIII: Stranger Things and is shown wrapped in chains.

Love from Kuu Kuu Harajuku

Love from Kuu Kuu Harajuku

As the brains behind HJ5, Love (voiced by Daisy Masterman) is usually getting herself into trouble with some new gizmo or other. Whether it’s new tech, potions, or crazy schemes she is the one pushing the envelope to try and make things go off without a hitch for her and her band.

Cosplaying as Love is all about details. A long black wig can be pinned up for the volume of her hair and then decorated with heart clips, then topped with a blue bow headband. A red undershirt is cuffed at the elbows then covered with a grey pullover so only the cuffs and collar stick out. You can sew a white lace ruffle around the hem of your black and grey plaid skirt to get her exact look. And then finish off the costume with red over-the-knee socks and calf-high red high tops.
