Last Minute Halloween Costume Idea: Dora the Explorer
October 31, 2014
Happy Halloween guys! Do you have any fun plans today? This is the first time we're taking Andres Sebastian trick-or-treating and we're so excited. He's dressing up as Captain America and ideally I wanted to dress up as a super hero too, but didn't get a chance to buy a costume on time. So this morning I was left scrambling trying to come up with something to wear. If you're looking for a last minute costume idea too, this Dora costume (as seen on Jessica Alba) is super easy to recreate.
I took a little trip to Target and found these shorts (which looks orange in person). I also found this pink shirt in the girls section (and bought it in size X-Large). It was long sleeves, so when I came home I took some scissors and cut the sleeves. I also found a short black hair wig in the $3 bin at Target (major score!) If you don't find a wig, you can also follow these instructions on how to fake a short bob with long hair. I'll also be wearing my son's backpack lol.
Hope you have a safe Halloween!
Where to Buy:
Merona Shorts, Target, $19
Girls Basic Tee, Target, $7 (I cut the long sleeves into short sleeves)
Black Wig (found at Target in the $3 bins)
