A Virginia dad has gone viral after he posted a picture of his son dressed in a costume he wanted for Halloween. The little boy wants to be Queen Elsa from Disney's "Frozen."

"Anyone that knows us, knows we generally let Caiden make his own choices, to an extent," Paul Henson posted with the photo. "Well, he has decided on a Halloween costume. He wants to be Elsa."

Henson, who lives in Chesapeake, Virginia, says the request didn't end there.

"He also wants me to be Anna [Queen Elsa's sister in the movie]," Henson wrote. "Game on."

Henson warned people to keep their "masculine [expletive]" to themselves, saying Halloween is about children pretending to be their favorite characters. 

"Just so happens, this week [Caiden's] is a princess."

Henson posted the photo online Sunday and it has been shared thousands of times.

Many people posted on the photo that Henson was the "best dad" and "dad of the year."

That's a point that Henson argues.

"I'm not doing this for any recognition," he said. "I want Caiden to know the extent I'll go to make him happy and that he's not alone."

"But I WILL NOT shave my legs," he joked.

So how is Henson handling the viral nature of his photo?

"It's rad though. I love the support," he wrote online. "I just didn't think it would be anywhere near this. It gives me slight hope, ya know?"
