Velma was far cooler

    Everyone must by now have seen the tale of the youngster who wanted to be Scooby Doo's Daphne for Halloween. Well done to the kid's mother for letting it happen!
    I have however to admit to being disappointed in the youth. Given a choice between Daphne and Velma, somewhat inexplicably he chose the former. I must have been alone in spending the 1970s in awe of the girl in the orange jumper.


  1. Growing up somewhat earlier in the century, my tastes lean towards Alice of wonderland fame (the Disney animated picture of course).
    From the number of costumers out there willing to supply the outfit, it must be a pretty popular choice too!

  2. I always thought Velma was much cooler than the rest of the gang.

  3. Better than being Shaggy but I'd have gone for Scooby! LOL

  4. Yay! I'm not alone in my admiration of Velma's achievements!

    One of my local group does an Alice. I can see why she likes it but I think an Alice my height would require that "drink me" bottle.

    Shaggy? I already *am* Shaggy, by day at least! :)
