If you’re like me, you thought Millie Bobby Brown’s performance as Eleven was one of the best parts about Stranger Things. Speaking of being traumatized, you might think that the moment she got her head shaved would provide all of the fuel she needed to portray the character—especially since the Duffer brothers didn’t inform her about the haircut until the last audition. Apparently, she was able to get through it with the help of Furiosa.

“I sat in the chair, and, one by one, they cut it off,” Brown told IndieWire. “I was like, ‘Oh no. What have I done? And they told me, ‘I want you to have the mind-frame of Charlize Theron in Mad Max.” And we did this sort of split-screen of her and me, and the resemblance was amazing! I thought, ‘Wow, that’s such an amazing way to put it, you know?’ It was the best decision I’ve ever, ever made.”

Once again, Catherine Elhoffer has delivered on nerdy fashions we love. This time around, she’s inspired by DC Comics with both Batgirl and Wonder Woman designs.

The Batgirl-inspired dress is purple textured spandex and black scuba and comes with bat ears on the hood and side pockets. The Wonder Woman tunic is inspired by Gal Gadot’s costume and features antique gold stretch vinyl, dark red Techno, navy textured Liverpool (spandex/poly blend), side pockets, and a faux skirt tabard.

For photographer Aaron Sheldon‘s four-year-old son, visiting the doctor’s office was akin to entering an unfamiliar and foreboding abyss. However, his fear was conquered when he “decided to act brave like an astronaut”, and donned a spacesuit for the occasion.

The initial photograph of the experience has since grown into an awesome series entitled “Small Steps Are Giant Leaps“, which features the little astronaut wearing his spacesuit to a variety of locations. Sheldon notes:

My goal is that the images from my “Small Steps Are Giant Leaps” project will remind other moms or dads out there who may be losing their patience in line at the grocery store or coffee shop that our kids aren’t just acting like fools – they are exploring new frontiers. Our job as parents is to act as their mission control and co-pilot to make sure they can explore as much of their new world as possible.
