Make your own Fred 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 Fred 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. Fred is the leader of the pack and keeps the whole gang on task! It is super easy to make a Fred costume at home from items you probably already have!

Items needed to make your Fred Costume

Items Needed:
Dark denim jeans
White polo shirt
Orange scarf or tie
Yellow wig
Tan loafers


Step 1: To get Fred’s look of cool preppiness all you need to do is find a pair of denim jeans. Not faded out or bell bottoms like Shaggy might wear, but some nice respectable pants for a nice boy.

Step 2: Next, you’ll need a white short sleeved shirt. You could do a white t–shirt, but Fred always looks a little more put together, so a knit polo–style shirt with a collar would be nicer. Tie an orange scarf or even a neck tie around your neck, for a on–the–go Fred costume look.

Step 3: Fred has yellow hair with a shortish haircut. If this is not your natural look, you can simply put on a yellow wig that looks as if it came straight from the cartoons.

Step 4: Finally, for your feet, track down a pair of tan loafers for a stylish yet comfortable way to track down the bad guys.

Step 5: For fun, have your buddies dress up like Shaggy, Daphene, Velma or even Scooby Dooby Doo and go as the whole Mystery, Inc. gang.
