DIY Scooby Doo Costume Guide

Women's Scooby Doo costume guide

Buy female Scooby Doo costume items:

  1. Brown bodycon sweater dress
  2. Suede high-heel boots
  3. Blue collar chain
  4. Scooby Doo dog tag
  5. Kellogs Scooby snacks
  6. Floppy dog ears headband

1. Scooby Doo dress: First, you will need to pick the right dress. Aside from sticking to a light-brown color scheme, this is where you can really put your own twist on this DIY outfit. We chose a cute bodycon dress with a ribbed knit to imitate Scooby’s soft fur. However, if you are going for more of a sexy Scooby Doo costume, you could go for something a little more revealing, like this hot deep-plunge mini dress.

2. The shoes: Because Scooby doesn’t actually wear shoes, there is again plenty of room here for personal-style interpretation. We shamelessly copied this look off some of our favorite TikTok cosplays: a pair of suede (again, to imitate the feel of fur) over-the-knee boots with a chunky heel. Though if you’re on a budget or time constraint, we’re sure you already have a pair of shoes in your wardrobe that would work just as well.

3. Scooby Doo accessories: To bring this whole female Scooby Doo costume together, there are a couple of accessories you can’t miss. For Scooby’s collar, we chose a blue-collar choker with heart-shaped hardware. Aside from looking really cute, the heart also allowed us to attach our Scooby Doo dog tag. Yes, we know this tag is technically for an actual dog, but it is beautifully made and really authentic.

That’s really all there is to it. Easy, right? If, like us, partying all night makes you hungry, you could also pick up a box of delicious “Scooby Snacks” graham crackers to munch on. A costume prop that you can also eat? Yes, please!

Can I buy an official women’s Scooby Doo costume?

Now, if all that sounds like too much work or you’re looking for a last-minute outfit, you could simply pick up the officially-licensed female Scooby Doo costume from Spirit Halloween.

Sure, you lose some of the personalization a homemade Scooby Doo costume offers, but the official Halloween outfit comes highly rated and is ready to go out of the box.

Just note that some reviewers have noted the official Scooby outfit runs slightly smaller than expected, so if you’re torn between two sizes, opt for the larger one.

Which Scooby Doo costume is right for you?

Is a female Scooby Doo costume the right choice for you? Or deep down, are you more like Shaggy, Velma, Fred, or Daphne? Let’s find out.

How well do these character traits describe you?

1. Food is your love language: The key to your heart? A pantry full of snacks. Your hunger is insatiable, your appetite knows no bounds, and your stomach is forever empty. Now, somebody pass the Scooby snacks.

2. You are a loyal friend: A friend in you is a friend for life. There is nothing you wouldn’t do for your friends and family, just as long as they don’t touch your food.

3. Aggravatingly loveable: You don’t even have to try. People just seem to look at you and fall in love. You’re cute, fun, and full of joy. What can we say, its a blessing to know you.

4. A big scaredy cat: You like to act tough but everyone can be damn sure if a spider finds its way inside, you are nowhere to be found. Nothing to be ashamed of, spiders are gross.

5. A puppy at heart: Being an adult is tough. Bills, studying, working, responsibilities in general? Ugh, effort. You want nothing more than to be wrapped in a cozy blanket by the fire with an endless pile of snacks.

How did we do? Are you feeling personally attacked? Good! That means you’re just the girl to rock this DIY Scooby Doo costume. Now it’s time to practice your best “Ruh-Roh!” and get to solving mysteries with your meddling friends.
