Eleven is the breakout character from Netflix's latest word-of-mouth success, Stranger Things. Played by Millie Bobby Brown, she's on the run from the government when she bumps into Mike, Lucas and Dustin, who are looking for their missing friend Will.
To help her hide, the boys put together what can only be described as a truly iconic look so she can go incognito to help them reunite with Will. It's cosplay gold. So if you're thinking about halloween already, or just something fun to dress up as, this cosplay guide below with help you get the Eleven look.
Ok so obviously Eleven is a child so finding an exact replica for an adult is going to be a bit difficult. Modcloth have a similar pink dress for $40/£30 but you might need a peter pan collar to get the full effect. Alternatively, if you're feeling brave (and cheap!) you can buy a school girls dress and squeeze in.
It's practical and will keep you warm while you're eating eggo waffles at night, alone, in a forrest. Eleven would definitely approve. £25/$33 @ ASOS.
I mean, you should just own this anyway cos they're cool af. $18/£15 @ American Apparel
Literally the best thing about sports lessons was wearing these shoes. £13/$17 @ New Look.
No Eleven costume will be complete with her favourite snack, Eggo Waffles. If you live outside of America, it might be best to print off the design and make the boxes yourself rather than paying $$$ to import actual waffles.
Ideally you'll do both the shaved-head Eleven and with the wig. You can make a big entrance by storming into the party with a shaved head, perhaps throwing someone across the room as you do for that extra bit of drama. But then, when you wanna be all coy when you see your bae, throw on the wig and let the magic happen. £5/$7 @ Amazon.
