This homemade costume for families entered our 2013 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Melissa, the 'Morticia and Wednesday Addams with Thing' costume creator:
I am dressed as Morticia and my daughter is dressed as Wednesday Addams. My daughter loves the Addams Family and has waited to be Wednesday all year!
For Wednesday: I bought a black dress on eBay, in my daughters size, I also bought a men's white collared shirt at a local store. I cut the collar off of the white shirt and sewed it onto the black dress, I also added some buttons, and hemmed the dress. I bought a plastic hand from the 99 cent store's Halloween decorations and painted it to look more realistic and more like "Thing." I also added a pin to the back of it and attached it onto the dress to make it look like Thing is resting on her shoulder. I bought an Native Indian girl wig from a costume store and altered it to look more like Wednesday's hair. I used ivory foundation makeup and dark brown eyeshadow to make my daughter pale and spooky looking. I bought thick black rights, and simple black shoes to finish the costume off. But I think what takes the cake is that my daughter is in character and knows how to act just like Wednesday!
For Morticia: I bought black stretch fabric from the fabric store and sewed the dress myself, I added fringe at the bottom, and added fringe onto the sleeves using sheer black fabric. I bought a Morticia wig at the costume shop. I used Ivory foundation makeup to look pale, and added shadow to my face with dark brown eyeshadow. I did my eye makeup similar to Morticia using black eyeliner and shadow.
The costumes took a couple weeks to make, and I'm very happy with the final outcome as long as my daughter was happy!
