Every girl has probably considered going as Wednesday Addams for Halloween, as it’s an easy and recognizable look you can throw together with items in your closet.

Lydia Deetz has several signature looks but the red wedding dress has always been my favorite.
If you want to show off your girls and wear some big hair, then the Mistress of the Dark is perfect for you.
Calling all “Danny Phantom” fans: Sam Mason was such a babe and this costume is a totally original pick.
