Halloween is around the corner, and our favorite #SFGuide style icon, Ally Chen (aka: @FashionByAlly), has created 33 last-minute costume ideas for girls, kids, and teenagers.

Each of the costumes — inspired by popular television series like Stranger Things, Disney Princesses, pop culture, animals, careers, and more — can be quickly thrown together using the clothes you already have in your closet.

Eleven from Stranger Things is one of our top costume picks for 2016, and you’ll probably see her everywhere this year. Call Eleven the new Waldo. While Eleven has many looks throughout the first season, her most instantly recognizable appearance is her “on the run” outfit, as Mike’s Swedish cousin “Eleanor”. Here’s what you need to pull it together:

Rose Quartz / Baby Pink Dress with Collar

This baby pink dress with a white contrast collar is the foundation of your Eleven costume. Sold by Allegra K on Amazon, the dress is available to purchase for under $20, including free shipping.

Women’s Blonde Wig

Unless you have a wig laying around, this $14.99 blonde wig will do the trick. Available with free two-day Prime shipping on Amazon.

Zanzea Retro Bomber

You can use a denim jacket to complete your Eleven costume, or you can buy this retro, tartan-lined bomber jacket for $21.99 (discounted 65%!).
