Be afraid, be very afraid.
I don't think we'll ever forget when Christina Ricci famously said, "This is my costume. I’m a homicidal maniac. They look just like everyone else." There's no doubt that The Addams Family is a classic, and that Wednesday Addams' Halloween costume is one of our favorites of all time — not to mention it's incredibly easy to DIY last-minute! All you need is a black dress with a white collar, some black tights, and a cute pair of Mary Jane shoes — and of course, the signature braids that the iconic character sports so stylishly throughout the beloved film.
Not sure where to snag these essentials in time for Halloween? We've got you covered, from the best Wednesday Addams wigs and dresses to perfect Halloween makeup ideas (including Wednesday's essential red nail polish look).
