When the parents of Aliniah Wilson and Jayden Proctor dressed them as Michelle and Barack Obama from the State Dinner, they were just trying to outdo the two’s Tina and Ike Turner costume from a few Halloweens back.

They didn’t think they would catch the attention of the FLOTUS herself.

But lo and behold, Michelle Obama reposted a picture of the two, shown beside the original photo of the first lady and her husband, on Saturday.

 

Mini me and POTUS! Who are you dressing up as tonight? #HappyHalloween (Regram from @BallerAlert)

The photo was first picked up by Baller Alert, who instagrammed it with the caption “Nailed it.”

And we agree.

The costumes were also featured on “The GED Section as one of the Top 11 Costumes That Broke the Internet.”

The dress worn by Aliniah was handmade by her great grandmother, and the young boy’s outfit was ordered from Amazon, according to Aliniah’s mom, Ashli Cobbins-Austin.

And while the outfits make the costume, it wouldn’t be as perfect if the two didn’t have the attitude to match.

“That is the cutest costume EVER!” one commenter said.

“This wins Halloween 2015!” another said.

We just can’t wait to see what these two (and their parents) come up with next year.
