Has an easier Halloween or cosplay outfit ever existed? We haven’t seen many.

This female DIY Shaggy costume takes just 4 steps:

1. Shaggy’s shirt: Everyone knows Shaggy wears a baggy green shirt. The color is so synonymous with Shaggy’s outfit that, beyond the color scheme, you really have a lot of freedom to put your own stamp on this look. We chose a cute form-fitting crop top as we were going for more of a sexy Shaggy costume vibe. However, a generic short-sleeve lime green Tee would also work perfectly well.

2. Shaggy’s pants: Shaggy wears baggy-flared pants in dark brown. He knew flares were destined to make a comeback sooner or later. We went for a super cute pair of brown bell-bottom jeans that just scream chich hipster.

3. Shaggy’s shoes: Again, beyond the black color, you have a lot of freedom when it comes to footwear. Whether you want to rock comfy flats or go bold and sexy with a pair of platform heels, this Shaggy costume is all about putting your unique spin on it.

4. Optional accessories: Now, you could skip this step entirely. But just in case you’re friends don’t want to go as Velma, Scooby, or Fred, you might want to add an accessory or two to really make it clear you’re wearing a Shaggy costume. Great options we found include a pair of Scooby earrings, a Scooby Doo dog tag, or a squeaky hamburger prop.

Which Scooby Doo Character are you?

Is a female Shaggy costume the best fit for you? Or would another member of Mystery Incorporated be more suitable? Let’s find out with a totally scientific personality test. Are you…

  • Scared of your own shadow: You know your flatmate or partner is in the house. Hell, you were just talking to them 30 seconds ago. That doesn’t stop you from jumping out of your skin every time they walk past you and casually say “hey”. But since you’re here, could you catch that spider for me?
  • Always eating: It’s incredibly rare to find you not snacking on something or other. Where did she find that box of crackers? Can I have one? Nope, they’re all gone.
  • The funniest person you know: Effortlessly hilarious in everything you do. Honestly, it’s a privilege just to bask in the glow of your fine-tuned sense of humor.
  • A hippie at heart: Working hard is for suckers. You’re a flower child born to the wrong generation, so laidback you’re almost horizontal.
  • Loyal to a fault: Nothing matters more to you than your friendships. There is nothing you wouldn’t do for the ones you loved. Unless they ask for a bite of your sandwich.

Zoinks! Am I the real-life Shaggy? It’s time to brace it, baby! You’re funny, you’re sexy, and your new DIY Shaggy costume is waiting for you.
