Make your own Daphene Costume

Scooby Doo may be one of the most popular cartoons of all time starting in the 1970s and still going strong today. The character of Daphene is one of the members of the teenage crime–fighting gang who travels the country in their iconic van. Whether zombies or ghosts or bank robbers, the Mystery Inc. gang is ready to tackle any job. Daphene is the vain, pretty girl in the bunch and she knows it, plus she has a knack for heading down the track of danger! It is super easy to make a Daphene costume at home and so smart too!

Items needed to make your Daphene Costume

Items Needed:
Purple mini dress
Pale green scarf
Headband or bow
Go go boots
Bright orange wig


Step 1: Daphene loves to have all the attention and a purple mini dress is her signature look. If you can’t find purple, then pink or any other bright look will work just fine.

Step 2: Pair your pretty mini dress with a pair of Seventies–inspired go go boots. White are fine, but a pair that match your dress are even more “wow“. Go go boots aren’t as practical as sneakers for catching the bad guys, but they look so much more fashionable and Daphene will approve.

Step 3: Drape a pale green scarf around your neck. If you don’t have a scarf, a long scrap of any pastel fabric will work just fine!

Step 4: Daphene is obsessed with her hair; she’s a bit vain we’re afraid to say. But there’s a reason she’s the center of attention her hair is orange. Unless you have orange hair, which you probably don’t, then just top off your look with a costume cartoon wig. Wear a headband or colorful bow in your hair for Daphene’s signature look. Also, make sure that you’re make up is done up very pretty.
