Daphne Blake is a member of Mystery Inc. and a key character in the animated series, Scooby Doo. Daphne is typically portrayed as confident, outgoing, and fashion-conscious.

Alongside Velma, Scooby, Shaggy, and Fred, Daphne tours the country solving mysteries and helping communities with their ‘monster’ problems. Daphne’s adventurous and resourceful manner often makes her one of the most courageous members of the group when confronting the many villains the gang faces.

Her look is instantly recognizable, dressed head-to-toe in her favorite color (purple) and a green scarf. A sexy Daphne costume is a fun and easy outfit idea that plays on the character’s impeccable sense of fashion and femininity. This is how to make the best Daphne cosplay for yourself.

For our sexy adult Daphne outfit, we chose to keep it relatively simple.

We started with a cute purple crop top and pleated mini skirt – just the teeniest bit slutty but hey, we are going for a super sexy Daphne costume after all (there’s no point in half measures now!).

Next, we added Daphne’s signature green necktie and purple knee-high socks.

The footwear is really down to personal preference. We went for a hot pair of high heels for our Daphne outfit but we have also seen some incredibly sexy cosplayers wearing the cutest leather purple boots.

Finish your outfit with a Daphne red-head wig and her lavender headband. That’s really all there is to Daphne’s outfit, easy right? The final step is her makeup.

This cute Daphne makeup tutorial from cosplayer Jbunzie is absolutely the best one we found. She keeps it relatively simple with a 70s housewife kind of vibe and we think the finished look is totally in keeping with how the character would wear her makeup.

She starts by arching her brows with a brown brow pencil before coloring them with an orange eyeshadow. For her eyes, she traces the creases of her eyes with a deep purple, as was the popular style in the 1970s, before shading the rest of her eyelid with a shimmery white.

Next, she creates a simple winged eye. If you’re unsure how to do this (or, like us, have a tendency to always mess them up) check out this brilliant guide from ipsy on how to match your winged eyeliner to your eye shape.

For her face, she uses a very soft and minimal blush. Finally, for the lips, she applies rose lipstick and bubblegum pink lipgloss.

We think Jbunzie nailed this retro and sexy Daphne costume, what do you think?

See below for the reference image she used to create her look and – if you and a friend want to make a sexy Daphne and Velma costume – be sure to check out our Velma cosplay guide before you go.
