- Millie Bobby Brown said that she typically “stays in” on Halloween because people dress as her.
- Some of her characters, like Eleven from “Stranger Things” or Enola Holmes, are popular costumes.
- Brown said that she and the “Stranger Things” cast went trick-or-treating together when they were young.
Millie Bobby Brown said that she typically doesn’t go out on Halloween, because so many people dress up as characters that she’s played in “Stranger Things” or “Enola Holmes.”
Appearing on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon,” Brown spoke about the fact that some of her most iconic characters like Eleven from “Stranger Things” or Enola Holmes have become popular costume choices.
“You have at least two Halloween costumes. People are dressing as you for Halloween,” Fallon said.
“Now I just stay in, Halloween,” Brown told Fallon. “My little sister’s like, ‘Can you co—’ I’m like, ‘No, no, no.’”
Brown’s character in “Stranger Things,” Eleven, has been a popular Halloween costume since the show first premiered in 2016. While the character’s appearance has shifted over the course of the show’s four seasons, her instantly-recognizable shaven head and season one-era pink dress and blue coat (with optional Eggo waffles as an accessory) make for a simple, but recognizable costume.
Brown said that her titular character from the “Enola Holmes” films has also become a costume choice, recounting a story about Blake Lively texting her to ask where to buy costumes reminiscent of Enola’s 1800s-era dresses.
“She’s like, ‘Hey, listen, my daughter wants to wear — basically just live in — an Enola Holmes costume,’” Brown said.
While Brown doesn’t step out on Halloween these days, she said on “The Tonight Show” that the young cast of “Stranger Things” went trick-or-treating together during the show’s second season. They didn’t dress as their characters from the show, however — rather, Brown said, she dressed up as Harley Quinn, while her costar Finn Wolfhard dressed up as “a whoopie cushion.”
