The evolution of Dorothy the Dinosaur (1991-Present).

Costume 1

DorothytheDinosaur.jpg

1991-1992: Dorothy wears human clothing and her gloves are longer and her hat is a tan colour, sports googly eyes, and has very few spots. Also, her tail is very long and floppy, causing someone to have to hold it up for her to prevent tripping. Every time she leaned her head back you could always see the actor's head. This costume is very baggy.

1992-1996: Dorothy's gloves are now shorter and this costume is very much like the last one except she has no human clothing and she now has a rose on her hat which is now white. This costume also has a lighter green hue to it. The snout is flatter. She even has more spots now. The tail is also shorter and no longer floppy. And she no longer has googly eyes. Also in a different version, her hat is turned up where the rose is and she has five-fingered gloves. Version 2 has fewer spots than the other version. There are no spots on the tail, except for the big one on the bottom. There are no spots on her arms either. The middle toe is bigger than the rest of them. You usually can't see her teeth, and the costume is less baggy. Her hat is also a different way. she sometimes has a spot under her mouth.

1995-1997: Dorothy's design is given a huge overhaul from the previous costumes. She looks closer to her 2D cartoon design. Her head and body are rounder and the spots are given a brighter tinge of yellow. Her teeth are also bigger and much more prominent. She has bigger eyes and thicker pupils. She now has a bottom lip, although this is rarely seen. Her skin is now a lighter tinge of green. This actually made its earliest appearance in the 1995 rendition of Carols in the Domain but reverted to and was also used in tandem with the previous version until early 1996.

Version 1

1997-1999: This costume looks very similar to the previous costume, with the smaller pupils, lack of a few spots on the stomach, and a thinner head as exceptions. In the 1997 Starlight Foundation ad and The Wiggles in Disneyland, she got a slight makeover. Her skin is a bit darker, her teeth stick out a little more and her tail is stiffer. The bottom lip is now visible and is slightly rounded in shape and her hat is also smaller

Version 3

2000-2006: Similar to the second and fourth costumes, there are 3 versions. The first version has a rounder head with a shorter cartoonish hat. The second version has a thinner and pointier head with the edges of the hat being longer. The third version is similar to the 2nd version, but her head is more rounded, and her mouth is more opened. She now has dark green skin. She also has eyebrows and bigger eyelids. And her eyes are similar to the 3rd costume and more cartoonish. There are border marks on her feet instead of bumps for toes and her tail is a different shape. In the costume's later years, particularly with the 1st version of this costume, the jaw became broken, causing it to hang down below the teeth.
