Behave Like Wednesday

Wednesday is not an affectionate child, and she doesn't need your affection either. Her nonchalance and confidence means that she does not need your approval to feel 'good' about herself. She is independent and quite the character for her age.

Known for her stoic expression and deadpan replies (often laced with sarcasm). You're not going to be very authentic if you smile excessively — or at all — for that matter. If it's too late for you to develop a dry, dark sense humor, try some of these classic lines Wednesday have said in the film "Addams Family Values".

Wednesday: We don't hug.
Becky: Oh, they're just shy.
Pugsley: We're not shy.
Wednesday: We're contagious.

Morticia: Wednesday's at that very special age when a girl has only one thing on her mind.
Ellen: Boys?
Wednesday: Homicide.

Joel: Wednesday, do you think that maybe someday you might want to get married and have kids?
Wednesday: No.
Joel: But what if you met the right man, who worshiped and adored you? Who'd do anything for you? Who'd be your devoted slave? Then what would you do?
Wednesday: I'd pity him.

Wednesday: Nice knife. Can I play autopsy with it?

Dress Like Wednesday Addams: Funeral Garb

Dress:

Though we do tend to see a lot of sexy Wednesdays during Halloween, we're not aiming for that look in this discussion. Wednesday is the eldest daughter of the Addams Family and she's 6 years old in the film. She dresses conservatively in a black long-sleeved dress — usually accented with white collars and shirt cuffs.

Shoes:

I would think that black ballet flats would be fitting for the overall look, but let's just turn it up a notch by pairing this look with black oxford wedges instead. It goes perfectly with everything, and adds a little something to an otherwise predictable outfit.

Accessories: (optional)

  • Skeleton Hand Collar Clips - Since the outfit doesn't call for a belt or anything exceptionally fancy, you can subtly play on the fact that Wednesday loves macabre, and this would be a piece she would probably love having.
  • Black Satchel Bag - We are Halloweening, we can't go empty-handed right? I picked this satchel bag because of it's simplicity and size, you just need a good space to toss in a wallet, your cell, and some place to stash those candies!
  • Headless Baby Doll - Self-explanatory!

Makeup to Look Like Wednesday

Because she was a child in the television series (and movie), Wednesday supposedly did not have on any type of makeup — unless it meant to make her look dead.

I have picked out two makeup looks that would be perfect for you as Wednesday. They are not your typical goth look with heavy, thick eyeliner. The focus is on the eyes, with less emphasis on the lips or cheeks. In fact, less should go on the rest of the face so you appear drained of colour.

Lexi's Grunge Revival and Morbid Monday Morticia (how apt) looks are both smokey-eyed routines. They are both gorgeous when paired with our Wednesday outfit, perfect if you still want to have your game face on.

Luminous, pale skin + nude lips + a hint of smoothly blended brown & black eyeshadow does the trick.

Wednesday's Hair

Wednesday wears her sleek black hair parted in the middle and braided at two sides. If your hair is too short for braids, you can consider temporary clip-in hair extensions, some of these are even pre-braided. They are easily attached with tiny metal clips — no glue or weaving needed.

You can look into various kinds of braiding styles like the French braid and Fishtail braid, but they will need a little dexterity on your part. For a simple braid, the traditional 3-strand braid (shown below) is the easiest to do on yourself.

So now that you're geared up and one with Wednesday, head on out, and enjoy yourself as an Addams.
