Ruh-roh, Scooby Doo is Touring…with Bjork's Costume Designer
Scooby-Doo is on tour, and he’s putting on a pretty spectacular show. While the beloved great dane will be wearing his usual teal collar, he’s tapping Edda Gudmundsdottir, Björk’s costume designer, to outfit his pals for the event at the Palace April 21st. The event was produced for all audiences, adult and children alike.
The tour, “Scooby-Doo! and The Lost City of Gold,” will see the gang singing and dancing alongside music, puppetry, magic, aerial arts, video mapping, and interactive audience response video. Apparently it follows Scooby-Doo, Shaggy, Daphne, Fred, and Velma as they drive the Mystery Machine to Alta Luz, “a fictitious South American town where ghostly sightings of La Dama de Oro (The Lady In Gold) threaten to scare attendees away from the annual music festival and Incan sun god celebration.”
According to the event’s website, Edda Gudmundsdottir is the tour’s official costume designer. Gudmundsdottir and Björk grew up together in Reykjavik and quickly became friends, with Gudmundsdottir going on to style Björk for numerous tours and events over the years. Her resume also includes past clients like Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, Maroon 5, and Imagine Dragons. In a behind-the-scenes video, the outfits appear to be influenced by traditional Incan designs, Scooby-Doo’s original look, and some very colorful sea creatures.
