I take a lot of my style inspiration from TV. Mad Men, Jessica Jones, Legion, and now, Stranger Things. I love the show, but because it’s set in the 80’s, there aren’t a lot of inspiration for real-life outfits (unless you’re talking about very loose interpretations)… until episode 7 of season 2, that is. Yes, that infamous “worst episode of Stranger Things” that everybody was complaining about also gives us another iconic Eleven look, except one that can be much more easily translated into real life than her look from season 1. I’m predicting that we’re going to see a lot more couple costumes of the two Elevens in next year’s Halloween (there weren’t a lot of those this year because season 2 was released so close to Halloween, I think.)

I’m missing the black eyeliner, of course, but again, this is an “inspired by” outfit, not a cosplay.

P/S: I apologize if the post doesn’t make a lot of sense to those of you that don’t watch Stranger Things. Also, what are you waiting for?

    Funny enough, I watched my very first episode of Stranger things this Sunday- the vanishing of Will somebody. I enjoyed it a lot although a little scared and I look forward to seeing more! Eleven’s pink dress with the collar is the one I see most people cosplaying although she wasn’t wearing it yet in Episode 1. I like your look and if I make it to episode2, I shall look out for it!

      Yeeeees! Go for it! Eleven doesn’t wear this until season 2, but you should totally watch it all. It’s great and not scary at all – more Steven Spielberg than John Carpenter, that’s for sure.
