Ghosts of Fashion Past: The Addams Family

With Halloween lurking around the corner, I know many of you could be getting nervous if you do not yet have a costume. Let me make a suggestion. Round up six or seven of your friends and go as everyone’s favorite spooky clan- The Addams Family. They would be awesome characters to portray, and the costume hunting would be sublime. Morticia and Gomez are nothing less than style icons. Her long, sexy black gown and his classically cut pinstripe suit could probably stay in your closet long after the holiday. Plus, Wednesday and Pugsley were blossoming hipsters. Her vintage inspired pilgrim dress and his loafers worn with tall socks would be easy, and cheap, finds at the local Goodwill. And for your funkier friends, the other characters in the show are perfect matches! Just don’t cut off anyone’s hand for Thing in a drunken rage.
