Maybe you can't turn back time, but visiting sure can be fun!

Christa Allen took a trip back in cinematic history for Halloween, bringing to life a character she's intimately familiar with. Allen dressed up as Jenna Rink from 13 Going on 30, a role she first played in her feature film debut back in 2004. Only this time, she played Rink as an adult, as Jennifer Garner originally did in the romantic comedy.

Allen shared a video on Instagram on Saturday recreating the famous scene where Rink gets dressed for her big night out as a grown-up, while indulging in makeup, fabulous new clothes, and a fully matured body.

"Jenna Rink forever," Allen captioned the video.

The budding actress was 13 when she starred in 13 Going on 30, and today, she's just 10 days shy of turning 30 herself. Fans in the comments can't help but notice just how much Allen continues to look like Garner. She played the younger version of characters played by Garner on the big screen twice. In 2009, she also starred as young Jenny in the romantic comedy Ghosts of Girlfriends Past.
