How To Make A Dora The Explorer Costume in 5 minutes

Oh my goodness.

I’ve got an Explorer.
And her name is Dora.

Dora, Dora, Dora, the Explooooorrrreeeerrrrr!!!!!!!!!

“No. No. No. No. Mama.
Mama. Mama. Mama. Mama. Boots. Boots. Boots. Boots. (Dora’s faithful sidekick)
I WANT DORA, Mama. Dora! Dora! Dora!”

Okay I get the point.

The same point that I have gotten 2 other times before this. . . . . .when I made this very same costume for two other Dora aficionados.

Though one wasn’t really an Exploradora, she was more of a Grumpadora.

And the other one hung up her exploring pants in favor of biting fangs and blood, but you know, whatever floats your boat.

Now, this. . . . . .

is a real, full fledged Dora the Explorer. Plain and simple. Except that I had to chase her around the house and make her wear this wig, after promising her candy galore.

I don’t think the real Dora The Explorer would push her madre to such measures.
