Justin Trudeau and his family channeled their inner superheroes for Halloween on Tuesday night — and they just may have won the holiday.
Decked out in a pair of nerdy glasses and a blue suit with a Superman leotard peeking through, the Canadian Prime Minister made the perfect Clark Kent.
His wife Sophie Gregoire Trudeau and their daughter Ella-Grace, 8, both rocked Wonder Woman costumes while 10-year-old Xavier channeled a werewolf (or perhaps Wolverine) — but not even he could surpass Heidi Klum’s Thriller-inspired werewolf costume.

But it was Trudeau’s three-year-old son Hadrien who stole the show. Decked out in an adorable pink dress and matching hat, Hadrien channeled Skye — a female cockapoo — from the Canadian cartoon series “PAW Patrol.” The Trudeau family costumes received praise worldwide across social media, with many labeling them the “perfect,” or “most beautiful” family — although a few took issue with Hadrien’s costume.
“Sorry, but I don’t remember Superboy to be dressed as a girl,” wrote one Instagram follower. While another questioned: “If you teach a male child to act like a girl, don’t you think you can create some confusion?”
The majority, thankfully, praised the family for their costume choices and reminded naysayers that there is no room for judgement.
“Most people here don’t stress over stuff like this,” wrote one Instagram user in response to criticism of Hadrien’s outfit. “It’s just a costume, only adults make a big deal out of stuff like that. And children learn from adults. We Canadians are very lucky. And most of us don’t judge.”
Is that Hadrian in the Skye costume? If it is I love it! Love how they let him wear ur even though it's a "girl" costume

Gotta love it, little kids don't care. They just like what they like.

My son, at Hadrien's age, went trick or treat as a ballerina

We got a young boy as Pinkie Pie. I was super pleased.

Skye is the best Paw Patrol character. Hadrian knows what's up.

There were even few comparisons to our neighbours down south.
