Weekly style: Morticia Addams

For me, the goth style started with Morticia Addams (Carolyn Jones), she have the classy as well as classic original goth style (according to me).
The Addams Family was shown when I was 8 years, and I so wanted to look like this incredible lady.

Some facts (From Wikipedia)
"The character originated in the Charles Addams cartoons for The New Yorker magazine in the 1930s. In the cartoons, none of the family members had names. When the characters were adapted to the 1964 television series, Charles Addams gave her the name "Morticia", implying "death" (derived from "mors mortis", the Latin word for "death", and perhaps also from "mortician")."
I will talk Morticia all week.
Make up tips, hair and clothing. This is the most beautiful goth style, and also very easy to achieve.


  1. Congrats on a great pick for a great idéa: weekly style!! I also love the Morticia-style, although since i grew up with the Angelica Houston-version from the movies, i find her the most inspiring.
    Are you familiar with Vampira? (the character from various tv- and movie appearances during the 50's/ 60's) I also really love her look!

  2. i agree that morticia was great, but the morticia from the show was much differant from the original cartoon morticia.

    as captain Suzy said, check out Vampira, because she actually CAME FIRST, and the whole tv morticia garb was stolen from her! :(

    watch this its from 1954
