Eggo wants to help you create your Stranger Things costume

Netflix’s “Stranger Things” series is sure to be a go-to Halloween favorite this year, and if you need to find the perfect accessory to complete an iconic costume, Eggo has you covered. Just be prepared for constant ‘Leggo my Eggo’ jokes the entire night.

So you have a blonde wig ready to go, you got the perfect pink dress, and you created the perfect “011” stencil for that temp-tattoo on your arm. Now what?

Well obviously you need a box of Eggo waffles, or three. Luckily the Kellogg Company company knows that you would want the authentic box of Eggo Waffles from the 1980s, so the company is letting you printout their official box-art from a PDF. The PR campaign is as genius as it is crafty, and we love the idea. Free adverts for them, the perfect talking-point at a Halloween party for you, everyone wins.

If you are in need of the perfect Eggo box, just click here to download and print a detailed replica of an Eggo waffles box from 1983. The printout fits right over a current Eggo box (how convenient!).

While it may be tempting to keep the box filled with delicious Eggo Waffles, we must suggest that you empty the box before going out that night. No one likes defrosting Eggo water everywhere. You can loop some cloth through the side and make it into a quick disposable purse for the night, that’s 011 thinking.

A love letter to the ’80s classics that captivated a generation, Stranger Things is set in 1983 Indiana, where a young boy vanishes into thin air. As friends, family and local police search for answers, they are drawn into an extraordinary mystery involving top-secret government experiments, terrifying supernatural forces and one very strange little girl.
