she has to dress up in traditional wear of any state
as a historical figure (i am assuming from the independence movement)
sending her like a little mallu girl or a punjabi girl would be so so so easy.
i am thinking
a sword, a turban, a saree, and a baby tied to her back. easily done at home.
the moustache will be fun. the hat will take some time to make. and will have to buy a khakhi shirt. the hat has to be stylish or no fun. oh damn, i will HAVE to buy a pistol, throws out my resolve to never ever buy guns for any child, ever.
this lady would be fun if the child was old enough to learn a speech, but hard for anyone to recognise.
do give your suggestions, and if possible link me to images. i am looking for troublemakers here, not the good good ones.obscure will do. what are subtitles for?
talking of costumes- the father did not buy a chinese doll for his child because... and i quote..."they all look like they are in bondage".
when will schools say, dress as post independence characters, imagine the possibilities...
i cigarette in one hand, a pen in the other, and thick spectacles, a white mop of hair. simple.
ok she is not post-independence, she is not even real, but would be fun. what say banno?
or then i can just send an SOS message to this lady, the master of all costume drama/art.
poor child of mine, she will grow up to say, please ma, let me decide what i should go as.
just remembered a story a friend told me. her child's first fancy dress party, she sent her four year old son as gandhiji. a year or two later he never forgave her, mom, what were you thinking, my friends came as superman, spiderman, and you sent me as gandhi???
should i just put pretty flowers in her hair, give her a white and gold pavada and be done with it?
