Victorian Wednesday Addams


This was an inexpensive and last minute outfit for Teslacon 2015, but it ended up being my favorite outfit of the weekend. It's comfortable and easy to wear (except I definintely need a slip or petticoat underneath since the skirt sticks to any tights I wear) and it turned out exactly the way I wanted it to.


I took the aesthetics of Wednesday Addams and tried to interpret them in the late 19th century. The dress is based off of children's dresses from the period. I chose the print wanting something other than solid black, similar to the dark print dress that Christina Ricci wears in Addams Family Values. 

I think I might bring this to Costume College as a spare outfit... I just love wearing it!

And yes, the parasol and glasses are Crimson Peak inspired...

Lovely version of Wednesday! The clash between a child's style and an adult's figure makes it even more haunting, quite suitable for the character :)
