“I’m just like any modern woman trying to have it all….loving husband, a family. I just wish I had more time to seek out the dark forces and join their hellish crusade.”


-Morticia Addams from Addams Family Values

As most of you know, Halloween is an extremely sacred holiday in my life (a.k.a. I’m already planning my costumes for next year), and I am very meticulous about the characters I choose, as well as how I portray them (*all while being a broke b*tch on a budget lol :p ).

This Halloween I needed to be EXTRA frugal, so I wanted to be someone that wouldn’t require me to buy a ton of expensive pieces– when in doubt, always go with a classic…

Since my normal wardrobe is essentially a culmination of various “femme fatale”/ “queen of darkness” looks, Morticia Addams was a no-brainer. The only things I needed to buy in order to complete her look were lace opera glove sleeves, and white body makeup!

And I don’t know about you, but I personally feel that Halloween costumes are always more fun if you have a partner (or group) in crime to do a themed costume with. Thankfully, my best friend was willing to take a break from her normally sunny disposition and step over to the darker side of life with me for a night as my “daughter,” Wednesday Addams (she made that collar herself out of felt and pipe cleaners– HOW F*CKING AWESOME IS THAT?!).

We spent the evening being misunderstood, dark-minded weirdos who didn’t give a damn about what anyone thought of us (so basically our real selves, only paler :p ), and it was absolutely TO DIE FOR.

“Wednesday’s at that very *special* age when a girl has only one thing on her mindπŸ’€πŸ’‰πŸ”ͺ☠️but don’t worry, I told her college first.” πŸ˜œπŸ˜‚πŸ˜ˆπŸ’€πŸ’‹πŸ–€

Additionally, I always like to stay in costume for my neighborhood’s Trick-Or-Treaters, so Morticia became quite acclimated in the suburbs for a couple hours as she passed out candy bars to cheerful, smiling, rosy-cheeked children in desperate need of Wednesday’s gloomy guidance.

Overall, I’d say this Halloween was a success (*snap snap)!

I can’t wait for next year!!
