Morticia, the matriarch of The Addams Family, is alluring, incisive, and witchy AF. Gomez’s cara mia is one of the original queens of Halloween. And, you can never go wrong with dressing up in a Morticia Addams costume for a party, trick or treating, or a scary movie marathon. Or a Tuesday afternoon.
If you needed any more convincing, the Addams Family is back in the spotlight thanks to Tim Burton’s new series Wednesday, coming to Netflix this fall. While we love the titular scary teen that is Wednesday Addams, her mother has our heart. Reportedly in a box on her dresser.
So this year, why not cosplay as the hottest mom on a moderately creepy block? And we’re not talking about Grimes. To make your prep easier, we’ve gathered all the goods you’ll need to make the perfect Morticia Addams costume, minus the devoted mustachioed husband.
Unfortunately, you can’t purchase those on Amazon. We’ve tried.

How To Make A Morticia Addams Costume
1. Black Dress with Long Sleeves
Her long black mermaid dress is one of the essential components of the costume. Bonus: you can always recycle it and wear it to your ex’s wedding.
2. Long Black Wig
If you already have long black hair, you can skip this step. You can also skip this step if you moonlight as a Cher impersonator.
3. Red Nails
We recommend press-on stiletto nails to give you that femme fatale look. They can also be used to pick up cheese cubes, in case of emergency.
4. Black Eyeshadow
Everyone loves a good smoky eye, and we’re pretty sure Morticia invented it. Just don’t go too overboard, or your costume will quickly transform into Uncle Fester.
5. Red Lipstick
Pick a shade that’s blood red. It doesn’t matter what type, though O negative works for everyone.
6. Gothic Ring
There’s no need to hold back here. You want to go bold with your Morticia accessories. Like, if someone looks into it long enough, it’ll trap their soul, kind of bold.
7. Black Pumps
Pick a pair of platform heels to give you a towering presence. It makes it easier for men to bow down at your feet.
8. A Rose
For the final touch, you’ll want to add a red rose to your Morticia Addams costume. We prefer real, but just make sure it has plenty of thorns to ward off your enemies.
