The hit Netflix series is loved by millions and one of the main characters, Eleven, played by Millie Bobby-Brown, is the perfect character to dress up as because you only need three pieces – a pink dress, a blue jacket, and a package of Eggo waffles. You can DIY the costume using our hand-picked items below and the best part is, you can rewear both the dress and the jacket, plus, you can eat the Eggos when you get home after trick-or-treating.

1. A pink collared dress

Eleven always wears a pink mini dress with a white peter pan collar and a ruched bodice and cap sleeves. This dress looks so similar to Eleven’s and the best part is, you can rewear it throughout spring and summer. If you don’t want to buy a new dress, then simply throw on a pink mini dress that you already have in your closet. $38, amazon.com

2. A blue jacket

In the show, Eleven wears a blue collared jacket with buttons down the front on top of her dress and this jacket is super similar. It has pockets and can be reworn, not just on Halloween, plus, it’s available in a variety of sizes ranging from small to 3X-large. $33, amazon.com

3. A package of Eggo waffles

An Eleven costume would not be complete without a package of Eggos and this package costs just $1.99. She holds them and eats them throughout the show, so even if you throw on any old pink dress and a blue jacket, people will know exactly who you’re dressed up as if you have these in your hands. $2, amazon.com
