Cartoon Character Costume: Velma Dinkley
Velma is the smart one in the gang. She’s got thick glasses, orange turtleneck sweater, knee socks and a short pleated skirt with a bright orange headband to match. She’s got great skin and freckles that are hard to miss so really, no need for makeup. Her hair is short brown cut in a bob with bangs and she styles it with a bright orange headband.

1. Velma: You will need a short orange shirt or as I used an orange tank top and orange skirt. For the necktie I used some felt, but you can use any type of material you want. You’ll also need an orange wig, black-rimmed glasses, white socks and sneakers.
2. Shaggy: Get a green t-shirt or tank top and long brown shorts or pants. Grab a brown wig, brown hat with a brim, black shoes and rimless glasses if you want. If you’d like to be more authentic then get yourself some “Scooby Snacks” for your pockets!
3. Scooby Doo: You will need a lot of brown felt, but it’s not too expensive and can be cut into different shapes to form the dog costume. You will need two ears cut out of the felt and sew them onto a brown head-band (or if you can’t sew then just glue them on). Cut out four paws to attach to your arms/legs as well as a tail that can be attached to

A pair of glasses, these can be borrowed from someone or purchased cheaply at a costume store. Be sure to get ones that are close to her square frames.
A pair of short tan pants with a belt loop waist. You can use your own khakis or brown slacks, or go for a pair of shorts if it is still warm where you live.
A turtleneck sweater of any color, preferably bright orange or yellow. A light blue sweater would also work, as long as it was close to her knee length style.
If you have light brown hair, try wearing it in pigtails to match Velma’s hair style. If you do not have light brown hair, let your hair down and wear a light brown wig to complete the look.
A detective like hat and backpack may also help complete the look. You could add this to your costume if you want it to be more recognizable by other people. There are

What Could Be Easier? Just wear your favorite orange sweater, a pair of glasses, a knee length skirt and black shoes. And don’t forget the knee high socks! You can carry around a magnifying glass if you want to.
If you have curly hair and bangs, you might be able to pull off Velma without the wig, but it’s probably best to buy one just in case.

It’s that wonderful time of year again! I love Halloween and all the fun costumes, games and candy that come with it. It seems like every year my daughter gets more excited about the holiday and starts preparing for it earlier and earlier. Last year she started talking about what she wanted to be for Halloween in July! This year I decided to get a head start on her so she wouldn’t be disappointed if we couldn’t find what she wanted. I started looking online in August and found some great ideas for DIY Halloween costumes (some of them I even made myself). I hope they inspire you too!
