Addams Family Group Costume

My siblings and I were going on a cruise that fell on Halloween. The ship had a costume contest and being competitive, I wanted to win! We thought for months what would be a great group costume that would work with our body sizes and personalities. It finally hit me… since WE are a family, lets BE a family - the Addam’s Family!!

It worked out great, my husband is 6’7” and gets called lurch a lot… and we went from there!

(left to right)

Grandmama: black velvet dress, shawl, witch’s wand, necklace all from Goodwill. Wig from eBay, and cheap white and black costume makeup mixed to make gray for the face and some tooth out to make dirty teeth!

Wednesday: Dress and doll from Goodwill (we cut the dolls head off and took off the Clothes) Black wig from Wal-Mart and braided it. She was easy!!

Morticia: Dress and wig from Halloween store and makeup used was the same cheap white makeup as grandmamma only more white and set with a translucent powder.

Gomez: Pin-striped suit found at Goodwill, facial hair from Halloween store, and “Thing” was found on eBay (cigar is from his private collection) lol!

Uncle Fester: We couldn’t find an authentic Monk suit so we went for the cheap one from the Halloween store- bald cap and same makeup as the girls.

Lurch (in the back): He was the easiest! He already had a black suit and bowtie - just needed some face paint!


Note: this was late in the night, you can see a lot of the makeup was coming off as well as Uncle Fester’s bald cap lol. *** ARE ADDAMS FAMILY GROUP COSTUME WON FIRST PLACE ***

Those kids are my creation!!
by: deb

I thought the kids idea was fabulous!! Never thought they would win first place on a cruise ship! They definitely have great imaginations, not to mention thrifty to boot. I took them to yard sales, thrift stores and any bargain shops we could find since they were little people. Guess that all paid off... and Halloween was our favorite for dressing up and using our talents. Those kids are just as much fun now as adults as they were growing up!!! I am one proud Mom !! :)

Coolest Handmade Addams Family Group Costumes 17

Our office decided upon the Addams family as the party’s theme was 'movie characters'.

“Cousin It” was made using 3 hula skirts wrapped at the neck of the person playing that part. We handmade a felt hat to fit over her head and cut a hole for her eyes then glued a piece of netting inside to hide the hole. We also found a pair of over-sized glasses at a dollar store and put them in front where It's eyes should be.

Uncle Fester wore a skull cap. His jacket came from a thrift store and we glued fake fur to the collar.

Baby Pubert had a mustache drawn with an eyebrow pencil and his hair was slicked down with baby oil and parted in the middle.

Our fearless leader was “Thing” and he simply held a mechanical hand just like the real thing.

The rest of the costumes were super easy. Wednesday’s hair was made from a cheap witches wig and was simply braided.

Coolest Wednesday Addams Costume 21

Homemade Wednesday Addams Costume

This Wednesday Addams Costume was made for about $15...My 8 year old daughter wanted to be Wednesday Addams. We got the dress at Goodwill $4. I had to shorten it because the dress was floor length and I sewed a white collar onto it (white fabric found for $1.99 in the clearance bin at JoAnn Fabrics). We had black leggings, black boots. We found a doll at Goodwill and chopped it's head off. The most I spent was $10 on the wig and braided it into two braids...oh and some black lipstick to finish it off.

I'm thrilled with the result!
