I am so clearly in love with Stranger Things and with it being halloween so soon… it couldn’t have been more perfect timing. Halloween is THE BEST. Having to spend a ton of money on a costume is not the best. So I decided to get creative and make a costume for Eleven that cost less than $25! The pictures are a step by step for how I made the costume just how I wanted it to look. Here is the list of what I used/purchased:

  • Jacket – $4 Savers Thrift Store
  • Dress – $4 DI Thrift Store
  • Sneakers – $4 DI Thrift Store
  • Socks – $1 Dollar Tree
  • Wig – $9 Savers Thrift Store (Cut it myself and I know nothing about hair)
  • Collar – $0 Old White Tee
  • Waffles – $1.50 Winco Foods

TOTAL = $23.50

(Other supplies- Yellow paint, green paint, tape, scissors, glue, paintbrush – These were all in my house already)

If you are making your own costume, be patient! It took me weeks to gather all of these pieces. So don’t wait until the last minute if DIY is the direction you plan to go!
