Eleven’s look has changed since last season of “Stranger Things,” so your Eleven costume should, too. Ditch the pink dress, blue jacket, and Eggos for a crossbody bag and mop of curly hair. Actually, keep the Eggos — and amp up the nosebleed.

Pennywise From ‘It’
… or Kellywise from “Saturday Night Live.”
Dougie From ‘Twin Peaks’
You’re going to want to size up for this one. It’s simple: dress for business, but add a green coat that is foolishly large on you. This is a good option if you wish to drunkenly stumble around in confusion and blame it on the fact that you are “in character.”
Choose from one of Queen Bey’s many iconic looks. If you’re pregnant, channel pregnant-with-twins Beyonce to remind yourself that you mustn’t sacrifice glamour just because you have a bun(s) in the oven.
The Night King From ‘Game of Thrones’
Can you beat Jason Derulo’s take on this costume? Accept the challenge.
A gender neutral option, just consult Melissa McCarthy for advice on hair and makeup. The only financial investment this requires is a motorized White House podium!
Save the day while slaying the costume competition.
Any Version of Taylor Swift From ‘Look What You Made Me Do’ Video
You can go scary, sexy, spiky, snake-y … the possibilities are endless. You could also round up a group of friends to represent multiple versions of T. Swift. Heck, there are enough costumes in this video to throw an entire Taylor Swift-themed Halloween party.
A solid option for redheads. If you’re more inclined to cat costumes, give the typical feline outfit an update by dressing up with friends as Josie and the Pussycats.
‘Beauty and the Beast’
Looking for a couple’s costume? Take inspiration from the 2017 live-action version of a Disney classic. This costume will make you and your partner the “belle” (and the beast) of the ball.
All you need for this costume is red, blue, and bod.
‘Big Little Lies’
Technically, this is just dressing up as Audrey Hepburn, but it gets meta when you clarify that you are, in fact, dressing as Madeline, Celeste, or Jane from “Big Little Lies.” Wear giant pink tassel earrings for Madeline’s spin on the typical Holly Golightly costume.
Glowing, glittery, girl woman power.
Teddy and Dolores in ‘Westworld’
An old-fashioned blue dress for the lady, a dapper cowboy look for the gentleman, and a lot of drama round out this costume.
‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’
Assemble your fellow Marvel nerds for the most cosmically badass group costume. Every character in the “Guardians of the Galaxy” crew has a wild look, so count them all in — except the raccoon, if you want to keep your candy.
‘The Handmaid’s Tale’
A religion-based autocracy in which women are second-class citizens? Now that’s scary. Dress as a handmaid in a crimson robe and white bonnet, or snip it up and make a rebellious statement.
Red, yellow, black, blue, or pink? This year’s reboot of the action hero classic gives you an excuse to dust off your old Power Rangers costume and party like your superpowers know no limits.
Bring out the bling and rule over the party. Dressed as Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, no one will deny your royal status.
A blonde bob, smokey eyes, and a fierce attitude are the weapons of an atomic bombshell. Top off the look with a trench coat and kick ass in some high-heeled boots.
Sometimes, a simple outfit holds more power than it seems to on the surface. Clad in a leather jacket (Jessica Jones), yellow tee (Luke Cage), business suit (Daredevil), or olive button-down (Iron Fist), a Defender makes superhero style look effortless.
