Little Krishna Costume Dressing Tips for Janmashtami 2019
There are a couple of essentials that you need to keep in mind while buying the costume for the child.
Crown: The mukut or the crown is an inevitable part of the Krishna costume. Ensure that you purchase good quality crown from stores or perhaps can avail from Amazon.in. If they are of bad quality, they may cause skin problems to the young child.
Peacock Feather: This feather equals the presence of Little Krishna in our lives, So, while, dressing up the child, tuck in a feather into the crown. You can also pin up the feather onto a ponytail and let the accessory stand out in the midst of the hair.
Flute and Dhoti: Once the head gear is done, move on to the kurta and dhoti. Mostly people opt for yellow dresses and they look royal and fit for the function. Ensure that the material the child wears is comfortable and does not cause sort of body irritation to the child. They should feel comfortable, or else they may tend to make tantrums during the rituals. Flute is something that Krishna uses to woo his girls. So that is a must. Get a flute to add more fun to the occassion. Get from Amazon .
Other colours: If you do not get yellow or perhaps you prefer some other colour, the next options are blue or red. Go for any, and make your child look his best on this day.Get from Amazon
Pot of Butter: This accessory is not a real necessity, but will complete the look to the fullest. Keep a plastic clay coloured pot. Fill with some light yellow coloured cotton to look like cream or butter. Decorate the pot outside with glitter paper and keep it aside the child. If they are older children, above 12 years, you can fill in the small pots with a bit of cream- to give that realistic touch.
