First things first: the dress. Morticia is known for her long, slinky, black gowns that hug her curves in all the right places. So, to start your costume, find a black dress that's long, elegant, and form-fitting. Bonus points if it has a plunging neckline and a slit up the side!

Next, add some layers to your look with a black shawl or cloak. This will keep you warm on those chilly Halloween nights and add some extra drama to your costume.

When it comes to accessories, Morticia is all about the details. So, don't skimp on the jewelry. Grab some long, dangly earrings and a few chunky bracelets to complete your look. And don't forget about the classic Morticia Addams flower! Find a fake black orchid and pin it to the front of your dress for that touch of sophistication.

Last but certainly not least, let's talk about Morticia's hair. The Addams matriarch is known for her long, sleek, black locks that are always styled to perfection. To get the look, simply pull your hair back into a low ponytail or bun and smooth down any flyaways with some hairspray. You can also add a little bit of backcombing for some extra volume, if desired.

And there you have it! You are now almost ready to channel your inner Morticia Addams and steal the show this Halloween. Keep reading to be the ultimate Morticia Addams that any Halloween party has ever seen.

About Morticia Addams

On the Netflix series, there was a psychic named Morticia. She was a wild child in her teenage years and went to a fancy-shmancy school called Nevermore Academy. She met the love of her life, Gomez, there, and they had a love affair to remember. Morticia was a fencing captain and part of a secret club called Nightshade Society. She even performed a talent show act with her BFF Larissa Weems.

But there was a catch! A boy named Garrett Gates had a crush on Morticia and wouldn't take no for an answer. He started harassing her and wouldn't stop, even when she went to the authorities. The night of the Rave'N dance, things took a dark turn. Garrett chased Gomez to the roof of the school, and Morticia came to the rescue with a sword in hand. Long story short, she accidentally killed Garrett with the sword and then ran to her room to hide.

Morticia and Gomez got hitched and had two adorable kiddos, Wednesday and Pugsley. They hired a butler named Lurch and all lived happily ever after in the Addams Family mansion. Fast forward to Parents Weekend at Nevermore Academy, Morticia had to face her demons and attend a counseling session with Dr. Valerie Kinbott. But don't worry, Wednesday put her in her place and reminded her who's boss.

Wednesday & Addams Family Costume Ideas

You're going all-in on the Addams Family spirit this Halloween! Here are some suggestions for the rest of your family to join in on the fun:

  1. Gomez Addams - Your significant other can be the doting husband to Morticia. They'll need to brush up on their tango moves and Latin accent, but the love and adoration they show for Morticia will be worth it.
  2. Wednesday Addams - Your daughter can be the gloomy, gothic Wednesday. Dress her in a school uniform, give her a creepy doll, and watch as she recites poetry about death with a straight face.
  3. Pugsley Addams - Your son can be the mischievous, rambunctious Pugsley. Arm him with a big balloon and watch as he pops it and runs away giggling.
  4. Uncle Fester - Your dad can be the loveable, eccentric Uncle Fester. He can carry around a lightbulb and pretend to light it with his own electricity, making everyone's day a little brighter.
  5. Grandmama - Your grandma can be the ghostly, wise Grandmama. Have her float around with a sheet over her head and dispense sage advice to everyone she meets.
  6. Lurch - Your tallest family member can be the strong and silent butler, Lurch. Have them walk around stoically and make ominous "uuuuuuuuuuuuurgh" noises every so often.

Get ready for a Halloween to remember with the entire Addams Family by your side!
