Costume week continues and today’s piece is inspired by one of my FAVORITE cartoons… Scooby Doo!
With the newly dyed tresses, I’m heading down the Daphne Blake (who knew she had a last name??) route! A few of the key ingredients to toss into this look are below…
I began with this purple dress that Stacey B. sent my way!! She said…
Marisa – Wow! You are one amazing lady. I am so proud of you and excited for your book to be done. You have brought so much inspiration, fun, and fashion know how to so many, especially me. Thank you for being a light in my life. This dress is a result of thrifting, and I enjoy the collar and color, but is too small for me. It would look great on you especially with some Marisa tweaks to bring it current
I love that this piece was just the right color for costuming today – time to make it ready for animation!!
I began by cutting it shorter…
…making a quick press and pin around the edges…
…and then sewing it all in place!
To recreate her lavender stripes, I trimmed some fabric off of the bottom of an upcoming piece I’m working on and attached it to the front of the dress.
To get an awesome lime scarf, I went to my pile of leftovers and found the exact color in a chiffon! I stitched the frayed edges and in less than a minute, had a neck scarf!
I also took a strip of the lavender fabric to make a headband and had my outfit totally together!!
Daphne rocks the magenta tights too, so that would be the final touch to make this piece rock!!
It was a bit too hot out for tights today, so I left the legs bare while searching through my neighborhood for the Abominable Snowman and other villains!
I had no luck, but I did come across a Mystery Machine-esque vehicle. I tiptoed my way past hoping I’d find Scooby and Shaggy to no avail.
Fun costume that makes for a great solo look or group number!!
Another fun costume awaits tomorrow that may or may not be cartoon themed as well!!
PS, Stacey B – thank you for this perfect dress!! My costume just wouldn’t have been as awesome without it!!
