Mom Dressed 4-year-old Twins As Presidential Candidates For Halloween

Posted at 9:45 AM, Nov 02, 2020

Four-year-old twin sisters Koti and Haven Garza may have done the impossible in 2020. These adorable girls managed to find a way to make the U.S. presidential candidates stand together and make people smile.

Every year the girls’ mom, Adrea Garza, goes all out for her daughters’ Halloween costumes. So, with Election 2020 being in the spotlight over the Halloween weekend, this creative mom thought it would be fun to dress her girls up as President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden to mark the occasion.

She filmed a video of the girls in their getups standing next to their campaign signs on their front lawn. Then, she posted the short clip to TikTok. That’s when it launched into the social media stratosphere.

Between TikTok, Instagram and Facebook, the video already has gone viral.

“I never imagined we’d have 2.6 million views on this,” Garza told WSPA 7.

And the number keeps climbing for the twins from Edmond, Oklahoma. Users have commented about everything from Biden wearing a face mask and Trump opting to go without to frustration about not letting the girls dress up as princesses for Halloween.

Garza told WSPA the girls did choose their own costumes for this photo shoot and those people who think girls should dress up as princesses need to be a little more open-minded.

“One of the comments I kept getting was ‘let your kid pick their own costume, they’re little girls, they probably want to dress as princesses,’ and I thought ‘how sexist is that? Why wouldn’t my girls want to dress as the president?’” Garza said. “I want to teach my girls to aspire to be the president of the United States one day, not to be a fairytale princess that doesn’t exist … so I’d rather them dress as the president than a princess!”

Even though neither girl is old enough to vote or even fully understand the impact of this election, both of them seemed to have a slight grasp of whom they were portraying.

“Koti was Donald Trump. She has the face and lips and thumbs down … I don’t even know where she picked it up, [maybe] from TV,” Garza told “Good Morning America.” “Haven is Biden. Her favorite part of the costume is her white hair. She thought that was super cool.”

For those worried about the little girls going door-to-door on Halloween dressed up as politicians, fear not. Garza told her TikTok followers her daughters are not going trick-or-treating in their candidates’ attire. Instead, they wore them to a neighborhood fall festival. These were their trick-or-treating costumes, as posted to TikTok:
