A Daphne costume or Daphne Blake costume from Scooby Doo is an exceptionally fun costume. It is a great costume idea for the likes of fancy dress parties, halloween costumes, and cosplays.
Daphne Costume – Scooby Doo
You have two choices when it comes to making a Daphne costume. You can either choose to base your character on Sarah Michelle Gellar and her portrayal of the character. Alternatively you may choose to base your Daphne costume on the cartoon incarnation. The main differences is the footwear and a pair of pantyhose. Here is everything you will need to to make your own Daphne costume.
Daphne Blake Dress
|The most important part of the Daphne costume is the dress that she wears.
Regardless of whether you are replicating the Sarah Michelle Gellar costume or the cartoon costume the dress remains similar.
If you are aiming to copy Sarah Michelle Gellar then you will need a dark pink mini dress. If you are copying the cartoon of Scooby Doo then you will need a purple mini dress.
Daphne Blake Boots
|The first difference between the Sarah Michelle Gellar and cartoon version of the Daphne Blake costume is the footwear.
If you are wanting to copy Sarah Michelle Gellar and her clothing in the Scooby Doo movie then you will need to wear a pair of pink high heel knee high boots.
Daphne Blake High Heels
|In Scooby Doo 2 and in the Scooby Doo cartoons Daphne does not wear knee high boots.
If this is the style of Daphne costume you wish to create then you will need a pair of simple high heels.
The high heels worn by Sarah Michelle Gellar in the second movie were a pair of high heel sandals.
Daphne Blake Pantyhose
|While Sarah Michelle Gellar has bare legs in the Scooby Doo movies the cartoon variant of the character wears a pair of pantyhose.
If you are wanting to create a Daphne Blake costume based on the cartoon then you will need a pair pink opaque pantyhose to cover your legs.
Daphne Blake Scarf
|Another item of clothing that remains the same between Sarah Michelle Gellar’s movie version and the cartoon version of the character is the scarf.
For your Daphne Blake costume you will need to wear an elegant light green scarf to wear around your neck.
Daphne Blake Headband
|Both the cartoon version and Sarah Michelle Gellar version of the Daphne Blake fancy dress wear a headband.
The headband you will need to wear should closely match the color of the dress that you wear.
Daphne Blake Hair – Daphne Blake Blake
|The final part of this Scooby Doo costume is the hair.
While Daphne Blake is a redhead in the cartoons, Sarah Michelle Gellar is actually blonde.
You therefore have the choice of using a long blond wing or a redhead wig to complete the Daphne Blake cosplay.
