Make your own Velma 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 Velma 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. Velma is the braniac of the bunch; she is almost always the first to put together the assorted clues and head down the right track jinkies! It is super easy to make a Velma costume at home and so smart too!

Items needed to make your Velma Costume

Items Needed:
Orange sweater
Pleated miniskirt, not too short
Orange knee socks
Sensible shoes
Brunette wig
Black rimmed glasses
Stack of books


Step 1: Velma is a studious girl and likes to dress the part in a outfit that looks a little like a school girl uniform. Essential is an orange sweater, turtle neck is better. The skirt can be any dark color but should be pleated but knot too short; Velma doesn’t like too much attention in that way.

Step 2: Slip into a pair or orange knee socks and pair of comfortable loafers for Velma’s no–nonsense look. Orange might be a hard color to find, but it’s her color of choice. Plus, her sensible shoes make it easy to chase down all the clues and catch the bad guys.

Step 3: If you don’t have brown hair then you’ll need a brunette wig. Look for a style that emulates Velma’s hairdo which is like a longer bowl cut.

Step 4: Accessorize your Velma costume with a pair of round eyeglasses with black frames. And, to show how smart you are, carry around a stack of books or a back pack.
