Halloween on DosFamily A Homemade Costume – Wednesday Addams


Wednesday Addams.
Last year my daughter Viola went trick or treating dressed as Miss Addams. Today we are giving the costume another go.
All you need:

Braided black hair parted in the middle. If it´s not black already you can spray it like we did.
A black dress. This one is from a thriftstore.
A blouse/dress with a collar to wear underneath. We used an old Lucia gown (almost all homes in Sweden have one, Lucia has been celebrated for generations in schools here).
A wicked toy. Wednesday is usually portrayed holding a doll that looks like her. We did not have one like it so we got creative:

Viola,  what kind of toy would Wednesday have?” I asked.
An axe!!” Viola shouted pointing to the air like one does when getting a brilliant idea.
I´m afraid it would be to heavy for you to carry…
A dead dog!!!
Against the law.. I´m sure. Plus where would we fin…””
“A guillotine” Viola interrupts me.
Way too complicated to build”
“Okay well.. how about a beheaded doll then?

We found a perfect victim – ripped the head off and named it Boris.




Synopsis: October is Halloween month here on DosFamily. We will blog as usual but we´ll add some horror inspired post here and there.

Det låter toppen med en halloweenmånad. Jag gillar att skrämmas nästan lika mycket som att retas. Till förra halloween köpte vi ett så fint skelett i storleken större barn, det har fått hänga framme sedan dess. Kanske borde man involvera sina grannar i skrämmselmånaden? Jag skulle kunna sno med mig moderkakor från jobbet och lägga på deras trappor eller i brevlådan….. (det finns fler barnmorskor i mitt kvarter så det vore inte helt uppenbart vem som var den skyldige)….
Jag ser fram emot ert tema! //Sanna

Hihi, jag borde väl inte skratta, utan snarare hicka – skrämselhicka! Men hon är ju så söt och uttrycksfull din Viol. Älskar Boris också!

Och nu har det hunnit bli torsdag. Borde det inte finnas en Thursday Addams också? ;)

Can’t wait for more Halloween-“godies”!
