A two year old girl from Redlands has already won every costume contest there will be this Halloween.

Willow Lee, who looks totally cute dressed up as Elliot from E.T., an In-N-Out employee, and as Frida Kahlo, rocks all of these costumes and more all October-long after her mom Gina declared it "Dress Up Willow Month."

Gina, a professional photographer, says that the inspiration came naturally. She told LAist, "I remember dressing up my first daughter in three costumes her first Halloween. I guess I'm very indecisive!" The tradition started last October and continues this year.

Although Willow is certainly the center of attention in the photos, sometimes her father Christopher joins in on the fun. He's already served as Forrest Gump and Daddy Warbucks. For couples, young Cooper Hales has stood in as Prince William and a T-Bird from Grease, according to the Los Angeles Daily News.

The photos have taken off on Facebook and Gina's Instagram, where they are hashtagged "#dressupwillowmonth." "I am a photographer, so I always like to showcase to my friends on Facebook. And they love my kids, including Willow."
