Wednesday Addams and her iconic black dress with a white collar have inspired thousands of fans to dress up this way. It is hard to imagine a Halloween party without at least one 'reproduction' of this iconic Gothic fashion style. If you are a fan of the Addams Family franchise and look for a simple, yet recognizable character to inspire your last-minute Halloween costume, then welcome to my post.

In the original cartoons illustrated by Charles Addams, Wednesday Addams is a sensitive and grim child with a love of poetry and all things black. Wednesday never smiles and is strongly interested in death subject. Her looks change from one adaptation to another TV adaptation, but a few things are always left unchanged — Wednesday's braids, and a classic white collar.

How to Dress Up Like Wednesday Addams for Halloween? 


If you plan to re-create Wednesday Addam's outfit for the Halloween party, you'll definitely need one basic and the most recognizable piece for the look. It is a simple black dress, which you will use to build your Halloween look. Of course, finding the black dress with a collar would be ideal, but you can simply add a 'detachable Peter Pan collar to the neckline of your black dress.

A pair of black lace-up oxfords would be perfect for Wednesday's outfit, but if you want to add a little twist, or simply couldn't find matching oxfords, you can substitute them with a pair of black combat boots. If you happen to have knee-high lace-up boots, they will also work with the little black dress. To keep your legs comfy, throw a pair of classic black stockings under the booties. 

Don't forget about other accessories and jewelry. According to Addam's Family fandom, Wednesday's hobby is to breed spiders. So, how about two cute spiders in your ears? A simple, Gothic choker with a pendant, or maybe a chain with a 'poison' labeled bottle on it. Decapitated plastic doll, perhaps? Sounds like a very fitting range of accessories for this character. 

Finish up the look with fitting makeup. Of course, Wednesday had a makeup-free face, but some no-makeup makeup look or dramatic smokey eye look with nude lips would fit the purpose. Style your hair into two braids, or short pigtails, and your Halloween outfit inspired by Wednesday Addams is done! How do you like it?

Lots of love,
