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.

Famous Faces

Your kid is loco over Lincoln or passionate about Pocahontas. Here in DC we have plenty of famous faces for our kiddos to imitate. Take your pick of historical dynamic duos like Captain John Smith and Pocahontas or George and Martha. And since it is election season it is last call for all those Barrack and Michelle pairs to take on the task of trick or treating.

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