cap for head
You must be thinking that Gandhiji did not wear a cap like Chacha Nehru, then why did we mention the cap. Actually, we are talking about the bald hat. Bald cap is used to hide the hair of the head. Children will find this type of cap very different and it is not too expensive.
To look like Gandhiji in a fancy dress competition, a mustache will also be required. For this you can buy fake mustache. You will get this from the costume shop. If the child is having itching or any problem with this, then you can also make a mustache with a skin-friendly marker.
In this case you do not need to buy more expensive glasses. You can also buy cheap glasses online. Gandhiji wears round frame glasses and you will get it comfortably for 100 to 200 rupees at the shop. You can also make a glass frame from old copper wire at home. By folding it you can make round shaped glasses.
dhoti and shawl
Many readymade dhoti for small children will be found in the market. You can wear it like a baby pant and drape it over a shawl. There are readymade dhoti available for older children. Buy white colored dhoti for attire like Gandhiji.
stick will work
Gandhiji had a stick in his hand which he used to hold. In buying this stick, you have to keep in mind two things, one is that you have to take a brown stick and the other thing is that the stick should be according to the height of your child. Don’t take too big a stick.
