Addams Family Costumes - Uncle Fester

Fester Addams
Addams Family Costumes - Uncle Fester CostumeMost commonly known as Uncle Fester, he is the older,  unmarried brother of Gomez Addams. He is an outspoken, fun loving and often zany member of the Addams clan, although he is usually shy and introverted around strangers.

Fester is an inventor of the unusual and loves to experiment, especially with things that go boom. He has many unusual interests including a passion for explosives, fireworks and poisons of all types, and mentors the Addams children in the "unsafe" manufacture and use of them.

Uncle Fester Costume
Fester is almost always seen wearing a plain, dark colored robe with a large, oversized collar. The "Fester Addams Family" costume manufactured by Rubie's Costumes, includes a latex fester mask, a black hooded robe and a belt cord to hold the robe around the waist, similar to the one worn in the New Addams Family TV series.

Fester has a ghoulish complexion and is completely bald. For a much more realistic appearance, we chose not to use the mask that is included with the costume set, but makeup instead.

The first step is to use a bald skull cap to make yourself bald. Latex skull caps are one of those things that either look good or very bad. If you decide to use one, do it right! FX Warehouse sells a quality complete bald cap kit that includes detailed instructions for applying it. You should be aware that you will need someone to apply it for you, as it is almost impossible to properly put on a bald cap and the makeup yourself.

Fester's skin color varied from episode to episode from a very light gray to an almost dark gray-blue. For the makeup we choose to use a very light gray grease paint by mixing a dab of black to white grease paint and cover all exposed skin on the head, neck and hands. Lightly darken the eye sockets with a very small amount of black makeup on the tip of your finger. We suggest that you keep a small container of the gray grease paint with you Halloween night for touch-ups.

Uncle Fester Accessories
Addams Family Costumes - Uncle Fester CostumeBy some unknown process, Fester has the unique ability to conduct and actually generate electricity. One of his favorite tricks is to place a light bulb in his mouth and cause it to light up. This effect is easy to duplicate by using a prop called the "Magic Light Bulb". It looks like a regular light bulb, but you are able to make it light up through a hidden mechanism. You can find trick light bulbs like this one at novelty and magic stores.

One of his favorite means of relaxation is to sit in his electric chair for a fast recharge. A great display for your front porch or in the house at a Halloween party is for Uncle Fester to be sitting in a prop electric chair.
