Krishna Janmashtami 2019: Baby Krishna Costumes For Janmashtami


Janmashtami is the festival that celebrates the birth of Krishna (who is an avatar of Lord Vishnu). This year the festival will be celebrated on 24th August, Saturday.

On the day of this festival, it is an age old custom to dress up little boys and girls in Krishna costumes. Baby Krishna was a colourful character with some very typical signs. And almost every family does have little boy or girl who has the spirit of Krishna imbibed in him or her.

So Krishna costumes are something that parents can take a look at before Janmashtami. It is important to know the salient features of a baby Krishna outfit first. Here are some of the main elements of Krishna costumes for kids.


The Tiny Pony

Baby Krishna always had a tiny pony on his head. This Krishna's pony has been adorned with white flowers to match it with white dhoti.


Modern Krishna

If your baby is not comfortable wearing dhoti, then you can also dress him up in a kurta pajama.


Krishna's Flute

As you can see, this little Krishna seems intent on admiring his flute.


Dhoti Kurta

Krishna always loved to wear bright colours. This Krishna is dressed in a bright blue kurta and a red dhoti.


Krishna's Crown

Krishna was a God who loved to dress up and as he was a prince, he ought to have a crown. This baby Krishna has a very opulent looking crown.


Makhan Chor

As you know, Krishna loved homemade white butter and often stole butter from the Gopis. But our little Krishna here is being force fed with butter.



Now Krishna's soulmate and best friend was Radha. So how can your baby Krishna be complete without his pretty Radha!


Bandhani Dress

Bandhani clothes for baby Krishna's are very popular. and yellow happens to be Krishna's favourite colour.


Naughty Krishna

Do you want to see Krishna in his naughty avatar? Then check out this little Krishna who has a remarkably naughty expression!



Your little Krishna needs his gopis to play with. Here is a beautiful costume for Gopi or Radha. The floral hairdo is really authentic.


Fountain Pony Krishna

Apart from the glorious smile, we just loves this baby Krishna's fountain pony!


String Of Pearls

This sweet little Krishna is adorned with many strings of pearls. We also like the fancy sliver anklets.


Krishna always wore silk dhotis. So you too have to make dhotis a part of the baby Krishna costumes. It preferable if the dhoti is made of silk and has golden borders. However, you can also make your 'bal gopal' wear cotton dhotis to keep him more comfortable. These days, you det ready-to-wear pleated dhotis for kids.


Krishna was a shepherd prince so, He always wore a crown. You can buy designer crowns from stalls that spring up just before Janmashtami, You can also make your own crown with shinny golden cardboard or paper.

Peacock Feather

A single peacock feather always adorned the crown of baby Krishna. That is why, you must stick a peacock feather to the crown of your Krishna costume. It one of the most easily identifiable marks of Krishna.


The saying goes that Krishna loves to dress up. So since we look at this weakness of Lord Krishna so indulgently, you must dress your baby Krishna appropriated for Janmashtami. Adorn your baby boy or girl with strings of pearls, kadas and necklaces.


Krishna is believed to be fond of flute and therefore, adding a little flute in the krishna costume will enhance its beauty and make your baby look more cute. You can either make a small flute in your home or get a new one from the shop.

These are some of the main elements of baby Krishna's costume to try for Janmashtami.
