The first thing you'll need to make a Wednesday or Wednesday Addams costume , also known as Merlina in Latin America, is a long-sleeved black dress. As this may not be easy to find, you can also opt for a long-sleeved shirt and black sweater and a skirt of the same color. Your shoes must also be black, it's best if you choose oxford-style black shoes, or at least smart shoes.

Sometimes, Wednesday also uses flowered long-sleeved dresses. If you have one you can also use it, but make sure the color of the dress is dark too.


On the other hand, you'll also need a white pointed collar to overlay on top of your dress, as this is one of the most characteristic clothing items for the youngest member of the Addams Family. You can either wear a white shirt under your dress or simply make the collar yourself out of paper and stick it on top.
