Sexy Wednesday Addams Halloween Costume

Want to know how to make a sexy Wednesday Addams Halloween costume? We’ve got you covered.

We show you how to make the best DIY Wednesday outfit and makeup at home, including where to find everything you need and how to put your own unique twist (whether that be modest, seductive, or full-on slutty) on your Wednesday costume.


Wednesday Addams is the daughter of Gomez and Morticia Addams and is known for her morbid sense of humor and pale complexion that contrasts with her jet-black hair.

She usually wears a black dress with a white shirt collar and can typically be found messing around with spiders, creepy crawlies, potions, and the occult. Despite her obsession with death and the macabre, Wednesday is a highly intelligent and resourceful young woman with a keen sense of loyalty to her family.

With the popularity of the new Tim Burton Wednesday series on Netflix, we expect this to be a very popular Halloween costume for 2023. That’s why we decided to do things a little differently. Our DIY Wednesday cosplay is fun, sexy, and guaranteed to stand out from the crowd.

  1. Sexy black dress
  2. False choker collar
  3. Thigh high garter stockings
  4. Garter belt
  5. Black platform heels
  6. Addams family ‘Thing’ hand prop
  7. Replica skull model
  8. Skull necklace

Before you start putting your sexy Wednesday costume together, you need to decide what kind of dress you would like to wear. Beyond the black color scheme, this cosplay is versatile enough that you really can wear any kind of outfit.

I decided on a sexy bodycon cutout dress from Kaximil based on the glowing reviews on Amazon and was not disappointed. All you need to do is add a false choker collar and voila, any dress suddenly becomes a ‘Wednesday dress’.

Alternatively, if you want to make a more conservative but still super cute Wednesday Halloween costume, a long-sleeve black dress with a Peter Pan collar is also a great option.

Next, we went for a pair of black thigh-high stockings, a garter belt, and platform heels. While we would love to take credit for this addition, we have to give credit to the beautiful cosplayers on Pinterest for this one.

To finish, you have a few optional accessories to choose from. An Addam’s Family ‘Thing’ hand adds a spooky Halloween vibe to the overall outfit and can really tie the whole look together. Similarly, a simple skull necklace also feels in keeping with the character. Meanwhile, a life-size skull (while a little creepy any other time of the year) creates some fun and surprisingly hot photo opportunities.

With accessories chosen, your sexy Wednesday Addams costume is almost complete. All that’s left is your makeup.

Wednesday Addams Makeup Tutorial

There are many Wednesday Addams makeup tutorials out there but this one from makeup artist Stephanie Stokkvik has to be our favorite.

She bases her look on Tim Burton’s new Wednesday Netflix series and, we have to say, she really does Jenna Ortega justice. Stephanie’s makeup replicates that pale and deathly glow perfectly without going overboard like some others we have seen.

In short, this is one of the best makeup tutorials for any sexy Wednesday Addams costume.

1. Stephanie starts by preparing her face with a vitamin-enriching base before applying a pale foundation. She then applies a skin-colored eyeshadow below her brows and the inner corner of her eyes. For her transition color, she uses a gray eyeshadow around her creases.

2. A black eyeliner is then used to draw around the top lashes and outer corner of the lower lid, before smudging with a cotton bud to create a more smokey finish. Finish with a dark gray eyeshadow washed across your lid and under the eye.

3. Curl your lashes and apply the blackest mascara. An Urban Decay brow blade accentuates the eyebrows without sacrificing a natural look.

4. Contour your cheekbones and chin to create a more gaunt and narrow look. You can also add a cheek dimple here if you are imitating Jenna Ortega’s Wednesday Addams.

5. Stephanie uses a facepaint palette to add freckles but we would recommend a purpose-made freckles makeup pen. These are cheaper and generally easier to use. Blend your freckles by lightly dabbing a damp makeup sponge over them to create a more natural finish.

6. For her lips Stephanie uses a burgundy lip pencil to draw a full and bow-shaped upper and lower lip. She then exaggerates the line out slightly from the center and draws two diagonal lines across her upper lip and a vertical line down the lower lip.

Add a clear lip gloss for a light sheen and both your sexy Wednesday makeup and costume are officially ready!
