Ten minutes into the first episode of  the Netflix original series “Stranger Things” I fell in love. I made this homage using some of my good friends at the Westchester Hamster Rescue.

Special thanks to Bob Al-Greene for illustrating the portal in the lab and
Alisa Stern for the lights and super cool trees!
