Sexy Velma Scooby Doo ‘How To’ Costume Guide

Sexy Velma (Scooby Doo) costume

“Jinkies! Why are our glasses all steamed up?” Well, that’s no great mystery. It must be because we are here to show you exactly how to make our steamy and irresistibly sexy Velma costume.

What’s the only thing that can make Scooby and Shaggy drool more than Scooby Snacks? You’re about to find out.


Velma Dinkley is a key member of Mystery Incorporated – a group of high-school or college students (depending on the adaptation) – who travel the country solving mysteries and saving local communities from a relentless onslaught of monsters and villainous rapscallions.

Velma is undeniably the brains of the whole operation. She is known for her breadth of knowledge, bookish nature, and analytical skills. She is most often the one who actually analyzes the clues and sets the gang on the right path.

Traditionally, Velma wears an outfit comprising of an orange turtle-neck sweater and knee-high socks, a red skirt and matching Mary Jane Shoes, and rectangular reading glasses.

Although she is typically portrayed as something of a geek, the sexy Velma costume has become a hugely popular cosplay option that playfully subverts traditional expectations of the character.

Who doesn’t love a sexy geek?

A sexy adult Velma outfit could not be any easier to make at home.

For our Velma costume we went with a cute (and just a teensy-bit slutty) tie-up orange crop top and red mini-skirt combination.

We also opted for Velma’s traditional knee-high orange socks. Not steamy enough? Consider a pair of orange fishnet stockings as a sexy alternative.

Next, you will need some red shoes.

We went for high heels but this cosplay works just as well with boots or canvas sneakers if you prefer.

Finish the look with a cute Velma costume wig and glasses from Allaura. These were the best-reviewed Velman accessories we could find and they definitely err more on the sexy side than some of the other options.

Don’t forget, slutty or not, Velma would never be caught dead without her trusty magnifying glass. We highly recommend you pick yourself up one too.

Finally, if you want to go full sexy and R-rated with your Velma cosplay (perhaps for a Scooby Doo-loving partner) why not tie your outfit together with some sexy red-lace underwear?

Not groovy enough for you? We understand, check out this adorable Scooby-Doo-themed bikini set from Etsy instead. We’ll have you looking and feeling like a Scooby Snack in no time!

Now, how to do the best Velma makeup?

Check out this super easy tutorial from Nikole Jackson. This is one of our favorite guides for Velma’s makeup. It’s simple, natural, and understated. In other words, exactly how we think Velma would wear her makeup. Perfect if you want your naughty costume to do most the talking.

However, if you would prefer a more overtly sexy and glam glow-up, we would recommend this Velma makeup tutorial from Ohh Maly instead. Each cosplayer takes a very different approach to their Velma costume but both are just as cute and sexy.

Nikole starts with a natural coverage foundation from Covergirl.

Next, she uses Urban Decay concealer to conceal her circles and dark areas around her eyes and a matte powder to create a very natural look.

She then uses a brow pencil to create some freckles around her nose and cheeks. Personally, for our sexy Velma outfit, we went with a lot more freckles to create a more pronounced look but that is entirely up to you.

Take an eyeshadow that is close to your natural skin tone and blend black eyeliner to create a natural subtlety. Jackson again uses some very light mascara and peach blush.

Finish with a natural lip liner (or a deeper lipstick if you would prefer a more impactful look) and there you have it; your natural and sexy Velma costume is ready to impress.

But woah there! Before you go on your meddlesome way, be sure to check out our sexy Daphne cosplay guide for double the trouble fun.
