Happy (almost) Halloween, Collectors! Today I’m going to share with you costumes inspired by two of my favorite onscreen gothy gals: Morticia and Wednesday Addams.


I’m a big fan of the classic show and the movies, and it was at Comikaze 2015 that I remarked to the Mutineer that we could be the Addamses. I know y’all don’t know the Mutineer in real life, but trust me, she and Christina Ricci could be sisters.

Of course, we forgot the plan until about a month ago when we were planning work-appropriate costumes to wear on October 31 (yuck it’s a Monday). Then it became a matter of putting together what we call “closet cosplays”, or, cosplays that you compile out of stuff you already have in your closet. We may not match the films’ costumes exactly, but I think we came pretty damn close.

And then, because reasons, we took pictures in a graveyard. Like, you know, the Addamses would. 

Happy (almost) Halloween, Collectors! Today I’m going to share with you a costume inspired by one of my favourite literary blood-suckers: Lestat de Lioncourt from Anne Rice’s Interview with the Vampire.

I’m a big fan of the novel and the movie, and it wasn’t too long ago that I remarked to a friend, with a tinge of regret, that there weren’t enough cosplayers paying homage to the decadent aesthetics of Lestat’s undead lifestyle.
