Rep. Katie Porter (D-Calif.) wore a Batgirl Halloween costume to work on Thursday. 

Porter tweeted a picture of herself seated in Congress while wearing the costume. 

"Taking my work in Congress seriously doesn’t mean I take *myself* too seriously," she wrote. 

"To my kids Luke, Paul, and Betsy, I’m still just Mom—seeing the Bat Signal on Halloween & putting on a goofy costume come with the territory," the freshman lawmaker added. "Stay safe trick-or-treating tonight, everyone!"
