Trick ‘r Treat: Dressed in Characters Ranging From ‘Hocus Pocus’ to ‘Coraline,’ Desis Go All Out On Halloween

Indian American kids and adults alike celebrated Halloween as they went around their neighborhood trick-or-treating. Children were dressed in a variety of costumes displaying their creativity. There was “New Jersey’s own Ms. Marvel,” a Little Prince, Winifred Sanderson from Disney’s 1993 film “Hocus Pocus,” as well as Daria and Trent, fictional characters from the MTV animated series “Daria.”

And it was not just the kids who were in the spirit of the holiday, but many accompanying parents were dressed up too: be it in a simple hat, wig, facemask, or a complicated costume.  

The White House was full of costumes as well. Press assistant Megha Bhattacharya was dressed up as Coraline, Politico reported, as did the all in the Covid team who dressed as various snacks. Suban Cheema, one of the team’s main communication people, donned a popcorn costume. Gautam Raghavan, director of the White House Office of Presidential Personnel posted a photo on Twitter.
