The twins are taking the internet by storm with their Joe Biden and Donald Trump Halloween looks that could even give the real presidential candidates a run for their money.
The rest of us might as well go home now as 4-year-old twin sisters Haven and Koti Garza have officially won Halloween! The adorable toddlers of Edmond, Oklahoma, are taking the internet by storm with their Joe Biden and Donald Trump Halloween looks that could even give the real presidential candidates a run for their money. A video of the twin dressed as the presidential hopefuls has garnered millions of views on TikTok after it was uploaded to the video sharing app by the girls' mom, Adrea Garza, earlier this week.
The video, which has been viewed over 2.9 million times since being uploaded, shows Koti dressed as President Donald Trump — complete with tanned skin and puckered lips — while Haven replicated the former vice president's look with a swanky suit and a pair of his signature aviator sunglasses. Speaking to Upworthy, Garza revealed that the daughters were born right before the 2016 election and since the family has a tradition of going all out for Halloween, she always knew she wanted to dress the twins as the candidates in 2020. However, what she did not anticipate was the girls going viral on social media.
"The response has been incredible!! The majority of people thought it was fun, lighthearted, and a break from the heaviness of the election," said Garza. "I thought the costumes were cute, but I had no clue they were going to get this much attention! I think Americans are passionate about their beliefs, and with it being so close to the election, these costumes stirred up some of those emotions." While most netizens absolutely adored the girls' Halloween looks, Garza did receive some backlash from social media users. "Some people said I should let my girls dress as princesses instead. And I thought that comment was extremely sexist. Why shouldn’t my GIRLS dress as the president?" she asked.
"I'm not against girls dressing in princess dresses, my girls do it all the time. But I'm also not against my girls dressing as the president of the United States either," the mother-of-two added. She explained that she based Haven and Koti's looks on what the candidates wore during this year's first presidential debate late last month. "I used the first debate as inspiration and hunted down some boys suits and flag pins. I chose my blonde to be Trump since a simple combover would be easy to achieve with her," she said.
"I added the 'spray tan' and she finished it off with the pouty lips and thumbs up! My brunette was Biden. I slicked her hair back and sprayed it with white hairspray. Added Biden's signature Aviator sunglasses and, of course, a mask," Garza added. Although her daughters' lighthearted Halloween outfits have ignited heated political debates in the comments sections, she hopes the attention will ultimately prove useful by encouraging Americans to go out and cast their vote. Meanwhile, the Garza twins couldn't care less about Joe Biden and "Donald Truck" — as Koti calls him — as they move on to experiment with more Halloween outfits.
"Last year the girls dressed as Harry and Lloyd from the movie Dumb and Dumber. They have also been Cabbage Patch Dolls, Chickens, Mimes, Where’s Waldo, and many more," their crafty mother revealed. "I have a whole list of Halloween ideas saved to the notes in my phone! We actually dressed up as Coneheads yesterday as a family and they are dressing as Dalmatians for school today." The girls also have their first ever trick-or-treating to look forward to where they will dress up in costumes they picked out themselves: a ghost and a pumpkin.
