A Boy... A Girl... An Open Grave...

This year we went with the Addams Family, Gomez and Morticia. This was my makeup test run, and turned out better than the final product I think. When I texted this pix to Dad he responded with "Yeck! What happened to my little girl!" Haha! The wig was two cheapie Halloween store wigs sewn together to have more volume than just the one.
I bought this dress at a thrift store for $8 and gave it a V-neck, and added gauzy ruffles to the sleeves and the bottom.
Ruffles courtesy of this weird strapless dress, also from a thrift store, $6. Looks like a skirt, but trust me, it was an 80s era disco number, complete with handkerchief hem.
Then over to the Halloween prefunk, where I completed my look with those red talons. After affixing them it was pointed out to me that I would have to use the powder room at some point, and was wearing black tights. Hmm. Hadn't thought that one out so thoroughly.
Thankfully Gomez was able to still use his digits to help with the awesome spray-painted black crayons...
That with a little duct tape were made to look like bullets in a wrist bandolier. And this one says she's not crafty. Hah.
The Black Widow! (Not the Asian pool shark.)
The Black Widow character was first introduced in 1964 as a Russian spy, and antagonist of the superhero Iron Man. She later defected to the United States, becoming an agent of the fictional spy agency SHIELD, and a member of the Avengers. She's also not above cleaning up some spilled ice in the name of peace and freedom everywhere.
I love this hilarious expression.
We don't really have the stature to properly be this couple, but the Addams Family was the first movie we saw together in a theater. And we have tickets to the traveling Broadway play in December. So a little sentimental. And mostly really fun!
