Hi,  Both of my girls are Dora fans so they were so happy when I finished these.  unfortunately this is the best pic of them together.

For Dora I made her shirt and longer shorts(its cold here!!!), I found a toque (beanie for all you non canadians Tongue) and stitched the yarn to it so that she could have the huge dora head.

I made backpack and map about a month ago http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=271170.msg3061191#msg3061191

Dora reading her map


I made boots from a fleece house coat.  I traced a pair of her jammies for the body, added some cream coloured flanel for the belly, I also made mits but she refused to wear them.  Her tail has a coat hanger in it and snaps to the bum so that she could go in her carseat in her costume. I made the hood by tracing one of her hoodies and added stuffed ears and boots hair. It snaps under the chin and I added long ties so that it could hold the tail up.   I like to call this picture "tragic monkey"

The boots were full footies but it was raining on halloween so I cut them open so that she wouldnt wreck it.


I had soo much fun making these costumes!!! I hope you enjoy them
thanks for looking Grin

The Dora giant head look is awesome!  I'm still laughing from the "Tragic Monkey" title.  Excellent work, the backpack and everything look totally professional!
