Stranger Things season 4 introduced the most terrifying villain of all seasons: Vecna. Vecna, the demon king of Upside Down, has telekinetic abilities to kill teenagers from Upside Down. But he likes playing with his victims first. He terrorizes them, takes them under their spell, and gives them nightmares. Until one day he shows up and asks them to join him before snapping their bones and gouging their eyes. 

However, recent BTS images reveal that even the terrifying humanoid likes to take a break from his murderous spree.

In another BTS clip, we finally get to see the full process behind Vecna. The Duffer brothers had opted for practical effects and prosthetics to keep the 80s horror theme alive. They have used minimal CGI. The actor had to spend hours getting into the suit for Vecna. His transformation would take hours, nearly seven hours. Bower truly deserves all the praise for his dedication to starting the day at 3 every day. 

The brothers had gotten Barrie Gower onboard for Stranger Things 4. Gower is a renowned makeup professional.  He and his team had worked on Game of Thrones and Chornobyl as well.
