Scooby-Doo costumes for adults and kids make a perfect fit for many occasions. Whether you’re looking for a Mardi Gras costume, a birthday party attire, a Halloween or outfit designed for cosplay, Scooby-Doo costumes are a fantastic option. Here, I’m going to show you the best Scooby-Doo costumes for adults and kids on the market. In addition, I’ll give you instructions to make your very own Mystery Machine team outfit at home (most are “no sew clothes”).
Scooby, Scooby-Doo, where are you?
How many of us spent magic moments watching the anime series involving the Mystery Machine Team? 4 adolescents: Freddie (Fred Jones), Daphne Blake, Velma Dinkley, Shaggy (Norville Rogers) and the funny, silly, scared, voracious and talking great brown Dane known as Scooby-Doo.
Freddie, Daphne, Velma, Shaggy and Scooby-Doo, the talking Great Dane, always drive to places where scary things abound. No way to get relaxed and have a peaceful stay. Instead, they must solve mysteries. Velma Dinkley eventually solves the mysteries at the end of each episode.
Some years back, the characters were brought to life while computer technology took care of the Great Dane’s character. As a result, popular movies were produced starring these popular youngsters. Of course, both versions generated a high number of party costume ideas. Here are they.

The Great Dane is always scared, and a bit of a coward to the point that he would open the door to any thief or other criminal that might ring the bell. However, it is also an adorable talking dog and he’s forgiven his mistakes right away.
The Scooby-Doo costume featured above consists of a brown plush jumpsuit to which a Scooby-Doo head is attached. The suit features the well-known turquoise collar. You can get this outfit in a standard size. The Scooby-Doo jumpsuit comes in a plus size as well.
