Addams Family group costume ideas – the essential characters
If you’re thinking of going out in an Addams Family group costume, make sure you have each key member of the family covered!
That means there’ll need to be four of you to transform yourselves into the most iconic characters from the Addams Family and leave every other party guest quaking in their boots!
Elegant and mysterious, Morticia is the stern and aloof matriarch of the Addams Family.
She the wife of Gomez and the mother of Wednesday, and everyone will agree she’s the real head of the family.
Long dark hair and red lipstick are a must for your Morticia costume, as well as a long black dress like this one.
And if your hair doesn’t already fit the bill, don a wig to complete your transformation!
Always dressed in a dark stripy suit, Gomez is husband to Morticia and the patriarch of the Addams family.
So successful at whatever he does, the only thing Gomez seems to fail at is fail!
Make your costume a guaranteed success with a stick-on moustache and fake cigar to make you instantly recognisable.
No Addams Family group costume is complete without Wednesday – the daughter of Morticia and Gomez.
She’s aptly named after the well-known nursery rhyme line “Wednesday’s child is full of woe” and is best known for wearing a black dress with long pigtails.
She has a very dark personality so practise your best solemn look to go with your costume!
Wednesday’s long suffering older brother, the oldest of the Addams children, Pugsley is just as likely to be tortured by his sister as he is to torture others!
You can play around a little more with the character of Pugsley – unlike Wednesday, he’s all about the mischievous fun!
Finally, complete your Addams Family group fancy dress with someone dressed as the eccentric Uncle Fester!
A long black robe fastened with a belt cord makes the basic costume, then all you need is a mask or some pale grey face paint and lots of black eye shadow!
Then practise your best deranged face to complete the look!
