Velma Dace Dinkley a fictional character created by Ken Spears and Joe Ruby for Hanna-Barbara Studios in the 1969 series Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! She is the youngest of Mystery Inc., but at the same time the smartest. She is recognized by her orange turtleneck sweater, red skirt, orange stockings, and red Mary Jane shoes, with horned rim glasses. She is currently voiced by Mindy Cohen, and was portrayed by Linda Cardellini in Scooby Doo and Scooby Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed, and Hayley Kiyoko in Scooby-Doo! The Mystery Begins, and Scooby-Doo! Curse of the Lake Monster.
Velma is a Caucasian female with chin-length auburn hair. She has freckles, and initially was depicted as more heavyset compared to the thinner frame on Daphne Blake. While somewhat obscured by her fashion choices, Velma can be seen to have a slightly wider waist and her facial shape is more circular/square compared to the ovular shape Daphne has as an adult.
She is always seen wearing thick-framed, square glasses (a running theme is that Velma often loses them, after which she can be seen crawling on the floor looking for them saying, "My glasses. I can't find my glasses."). She normally wears an orange sweater, with a red skirt, knee length orange socks and black Mary Jane shoes. Her clothes didn't change much from show to show being almost the same.
