If you haven't caught on to the new wave that is Stranger Things, you've missed out on one of the greatest moments of pop culture from this past summer. Though the main characters like Dustin and Eleven have been getting a lot of the attention when it comes to the series, there's no way that high school sweethearts Steve and Nancy didn't make a lasting impression as well. That's why Steve and Nancy from Stranger Things Halloween costumes should be on your list of potential ideas to use this year.
Although many were left heartbroken when Nancy chose Steve over Jonathan (sorry for the spoiler), you can't help but go "aww" when you see the two love birds. Don't you remember falling in love in high school? Well, even if you don't, you can make it happen for the first time when you nail one of their looks this Halloween. From the day that their love started heating up to that one time they fought side by side, dressing and Steve and Nancy will prove that real love never dies — or hasn't caused you to die at the end of season one.
