DIY Style

Easy Wednesday Addams Costume Ideas

The countdown to Halloween is on, and so is the countdown to Tim Burton’s upcoming Wednesday Addams series on Netflix (psst—we heard Catherine Zeta-Jones is going to play the iconic role of Morticia). No matter how ghastly the Addams Family gets, they’ve served us classic looks that win Halloween every time. Luckily, because of Wednesday’s simple look, you can easily DIY her ensemble all the way from the black dress and tights to the collar and pigtails.

Not sure where to start? We’ve got you covered! We even made sure to include an easy DIY outfit for the Addams Family matriarch, Morticia. After all, Wednesday had to get her gothic style from someone, and the alluring elegance of Morticia makes for a killer Halloween fit. While you’re at it, see if you can convince the entire family to don their best looks by dressing as the other members of the fam like Gomez, Cousin It, Pugsley, and more. Either way, you’re never too old (or young) to dress like everyone’s favorite impassive character.

The Wednesday Addams Blueprint

Despite being obsessed with death and her ghoulish hobbies, we’ve got to applaud Wednesday for consistency. Her iconic, monochromatic look has held true over decades. In 5 easy steps, you can channel your inner Wednesday and become the Queen of Halloween.

Wednesday seldom shows her emotions so the less smiling, the better. If you want to take the costume even further, take some inspiration from the original adaptation of The Addams Family where one of Wednesday’s favorite toys is a Marie Antoinette doll. Of course, it probably doesn’t come as a surprise that she asks her brother to cut the doll’s head off. So, for a little extra creepy factor, feel free to carry around a headless doll to complete Wednesday’s look.

The Alluring Morticia Addams

Wednesday definitely got her monochromatic fashion sense from her mother, Morticia. The oh-so-elegant matriarch of the Addams family basically floats wherever she goes with one of the most recognizable looks in cinema. She’s like the gothic version of Cher!

The witchy icon moves in confidence wherever she goes with long black locks that basically blend in with her form-fitting dress. Depending on your mood, you can finish off her gothic look by carrying one of these two things: a rose or a skull.
