What do you get when you mix a Scooby Doo costume and a bunch of Scooby Doo party supplies? A very “groovy” mystery party that both kids and/or adults will love.
Around since the seventies, this scaredy-cat great dane and his gang of human sleuths have made a major comeback in recent years. The group is so popular, it’s sparked a massive wave of merchandising. This is good news for fans and party throwers looking for party supplies. It also means people won’t have to ask you what you’re dressed as when you show up in a Scooby costume. While he may not recognize Velma, Daphne, Fred and Shaggy, even the crotchety man down the street probably knows who Scooby Doo is.
A kid’s Scooby costume can run any where from $15 to $30. An adult size costume can run slightly more expensive, but it won’t break the bank. The costume is generally a full body jumpsuit with a Scooby head hood. Any good costume should also include his tail, signature teal and gold collar, and Scooby’s patently scared expression.
If you’re looking to have the whole Mystery Team at your shin-dig, anywhere you find a Scooby costume will likely also carry Velma, Daphne, Fred and Shaggy get-ups as well. Or you can hit up your local thrift store in search of a matching seventies inspired wardrobe. Just remember to take a picture of the gang along to make sure you’re got the right styles and colors.
Scooby Doo party supplies like decorated plates, napkins and balloons can be found at almost every party store and make a great addition to any Scooby themed party. However, the shows and movies are chalk full of spooky mystery: secret passages, revolving bookcases, ghosts, and hidden treasure. Your party supplies and decorations should also be spooky and mysterious.
Here’s a few mysterious ideas for party supplies and decorations:
Try writing part of the directions on your invitation in invisible ink. Lemon juice dries clear on paper and then turns color when held close to heat. Make sure to let your guests know to do this, or they might get lost!
When picking up your Scooby Doo party supplies at the party store, also pick up a bunch of mini magnifying glasses to include in your party favor bags. Also include written clues as to where your guests can find extra Mystery Inc surprises.
Include a white sheet in your list of party supplies. Throw over a couple of helium filled balloons for a convincing ghost as part of the decorations. Draw stone or brick wall on another sheet and hang it over a doorway to make a secret passage.
A few good Scooby Doo party supplies ideas and a Scooby Doo costume is all it takes to throw an awesome theme party. Scooby Doo can be fun for all ages, as long as you don’t forget the Scooby Snacks!
Since the 70s, the Scooby Doo Costume has been evergreen masquerade, theme party, and Halloween choices. Boys and girls, men and women – even the family dog can get in on the action. Scooby Doo Costumes don’t tend to be bulky or constricting. They are casual and allow for easy eating, drinking, and chatting because they rarely require masks. Wigs, clothes, and glasses may be all you need to be a convincing member of the Mystery Inc. gang. Also, don’t forget to grab your Scooby Doo Party Supplies.
