The Addams family was created by cartoonist Chas Addams when he was working for The New Yorker magazine. He created 150 Addams family cartoons between 1938 and his death in 1988, half of which were published in the New Yorker. The characters were so successful that they have led to numerous tv shows, movies and a Broadway musical.
The characters, particularly the female characters have a style that is instantly recognisable and an attitude that is bad ass!
Here are my 5 Addams Family inspired products to make you creepy and kooky everyday!
1. A Morticia chair
What: Made famous in the comics first and then imortalised in the tv show these cane chairs, also known as a peacock chair, look spectacular and will make you feel bad-ass while you entertain friends or watch tv.
Find it: You can find these cane chairs new but they tend to be a bit pricey. The best ones can be found at op shops or on ebay. To use, just get a long flowing dress, a disembodied hand and sit in your living room looking majestic AF....
2. Bleeding and brainy doll head candle
What: Handmade candles with a lovely scent in the shape of a dolls head. Creepy right? well it gets better because once you light it this candle looks like it is bleeding.
Find it: You Me & Bonesis a Melbourne based candle maker. They only release in batches so its best to sign up to their newsletter to grab one wen they go live.
3. Milk Sugar Cyanide Morticia Tee
What: What does the hostess with the most-est offer when entertaining? Milk, sugar or cyanide of course!!!! 🕷🍵💀
4. Addams Family Barbie set
What: The only barbie doll I have ever actually wanted to buy. Morticia and Gomez are fantastic as barbie dolls.
Find it: the link to the barbie website is here but they dont seem to have any. I would try Amazon or ebay for this set.
5. A Wednesday Addams dress you can wear everywhere
What: This dress from modcloth is like an adult Wednesday Addams dress. It has a lower neckline and is super comfy to wear everyday. I have this dress and I wear it a lot!
Find it: on the Modcloth website. I think it comes in other colours but why bother...
