This dad and his son are going as Elsa and Anna for Halloween!

What would you do if your son wanted to be a princess for Halloween? Dress up as one too, of course!

Princess Elsa


From firefighters to fairies, Halloween is the time of the year when kids get to dress up and be whoever they want.

Three-year-old Caiden really wants to be Elsa from Frozen.

His parents, Paul Henson and Ashley Ramage of Virginia, encouraged his decision. But when Caiden told his friends at preschool about his costume idea, they didn’t share in his excitement.

Paul told the Daily Mail that Caiden’s classmates told him, “No, you can’t be that. That’s a girls’ costume.”

After he was teased, Caiden wasn’t sure that he wanted to dress up as Elsa anymore. But when his Dad suggested the two of them go together as Elsa and Anna, “his face lit up” and he decided to stick with his original choice.

Paul shared this adorable snapshot of Caiden in his blue Elsa dress on his Facebook page and wrote, “Halloween is about children pretending to be their favorite characters. It just so happens, this week his is a princess.”

That’s one smart dad.

Caiden is clearly one of the cutest Princess Elsa’s we’ve ever seen—and we know Paul will make a terrific Princess Anna, too.
