How to Dress up your Kid as Lord Krishna?
Dress up your little one in a dhoti, preferably a silk one. Yellow is the favorite color of Lord Krishna so that is most commonly used. However, you can use any color. You can also go for a ready to wear dhoti to make things simpler. With the dhoti, you can make your little Krishna wear a kurta. If you have a yellow kurta, it is perfect.
Use your pearl necklaces or garlands to add to the charm of the little Krishna. Ensure you use lightweight jewelry to avoid any discomfort.
You could use an armband or ‘baaju bandh’ to accessorize your little Krishna. A rakhi can double up as a baaju bandh too.
Waistbands are purely optional. But this will definitely add to the look.
Another optional accessory is anklets. But trust me, when your little Krishna runs around the house, the sound of the anklets is just music to the ears.
The lord Krishna look is incomplete without the flute. You can wrap the flute with a golden paper and attach some beads to it. If you don’t have a flute, a small rounded stick will work as well.
Crown is the most important part of our little Krishna. Adorn your little one with a crown. You could buy a readymade crown or make one at home from a card paper and stick the golden paper to it. Also, ensure that the crown is not very uncomfortable for the kids to carry around. Preferably a cloth or a light card paper crown should be used.
Use a peacock feather to decorate the crown. You can attach the peacock feather with a tape. If you don’t have a crown, then you can tuck it into the band used to secure your little one’s pony.
Remember to use a prominent feather, which can be seen and will add to the look.
