Whether she’s dressed in her uniform from Nevermore Academy or rocking a tulle dress à la Jenna Ortega, Wednesday Addams is an unforgettable character. Luckily, she’s also one of the most accessible Halloween costumes to recreate for yourself this year. You just need a black dress, some straight pig tails and that signature scowl to pull it off.
With a penchant for dark monochrome looks (though duochrome does have its place in her wardrobe), Wednesday’s signature look is a long, black dress paired with a white collar. If you want to give it a modern twist, try this long-sleeve dress with a boat neck instead of the traditional V-neck. Top off the look with a pair of classic Mary Jane heels.
If you’d rather go with a more recognizable outfit, this dress from Amazon is the perfect match for Wednesday’s uniform from the Netflix series. It’s available for both kids and adults in sizes from XS to 3XL, so you can get the whole family into the act this year.
Another option is this Wednesday Addams costume set, which comes with everything you need to mimic the Addams teen’s look. This black, Peter Pan-collared dress is easy to pair with tights and a black satchel-style backpack. Finish the look with a black wig and classic Mary Jane shoes, and you’re all ready to haunt your neighborhood or attend your favorite Halloween party. Wednesday Addams Children’s Costume
