The Addams Family 25 Years On: How to Get the Look This Halloween

The Addams Family movies are modern classics, serving us endless kooky laughs and spooky inspiration. As the franchise celebrates its 25th birthday today, we’re looking back at the iconic characters and how you can pay homage to them this Halloween. 


Suave and sophisticated, Gomez is the connoisseur in everything spooky. With his mini ‘tashe and slicked back hair, he’s the perfect fancy dress option if you are looking for a tailored approach this Halloween. Think liquorice-lined shirts, suit trousers and a black bow tie to get his look. 


With a sultry glow and aesthetic that would make any classic horror female green with envy, Morticia is a certified pop culture icon. Nail her look with a lace detailed maxi and black heels, not forgetting that slick of rouge to contrast her pale complexion perfectly. 


With quotable lines and enough teen angst to rival Regina George, it’s fair to say Wednesday is a character we all relate to. Her outfit is instantly recognisable, and easy to recreate with a collared black dress and  patent creepers – add a cute coin purse for a touch of newness. 


Wednesday’s younger brother Pugsley is devilishly devious. He is seldom seen without his monochrome striped tee and eccentric buzz cut with spiked quiff – re-create his outfit with a stripe jumper and skinny jeans, keeping your shoes smart for a look that’s just like his.  

Cousin IT

Gomez Addams’ bizarre cousin, the unnamed It’s entire body is covered in hair as the character is shrouded in mystery. Take an alternative approach to Halloween dressing by channelling him – think a caramel fur coat teamed with a tan dress and matching heels for a feminine edge to the look.
