Halloween in D.C. brings on a plethora of politically-inspired costumes and tiny tots are not exempt from that scene. Don’t be basic just because it is an election year. Look beyond the Donald and Hillary this All Hallows Eve and dress your kid in a D.C.-style only a native would know. Click through the slideshow to get inspired.

Monumental Style

You can’t grow up here and not dress up like one of the most well-known landmarks. Build a Washington Monument for your kid out of a cardboard box and you are good to go. Don’t forget the eyeholes!

Do you have any D.C.-centric Halloween costume ideas? Tell us about it in the comments section below.
