This simple and easy to make Velma costume from the Scooby Doo Gang is homemade, after looking at off the shelf costumes I thought I could do better.

I started off breaking the costume down into what items I needed. It’s basically an orange polo top which I found a few on eBay. I already had a red skirt at home. The socks were a bright orange and after searching I couldn’t find a color match so I bought some white football socks and orange dye. The footwear was just red slip on plimsolls. A short bob wig and real glasses lent off a friend completed the look.

Two other friends also made their Scooby Doo gang costumes and it got us loads of attention and people asking to be photographed with us. I have also lent this costume out to a friend they liked it that much.
