Costumes - Gomez
generous and wealthy head of
the Addams household. Gomez is of Castilian
decent and loves a good cigar. He is the younger brother of Fester Addams. Despite
his macabre sense of humor, he is
actually just a big kid who enjoys playing with toys, especially his
model train set, which he regularly blows-up, usually just after he has
arraigned a head-on collision.
Gomez is passionately in
love with his wife Morticia and has an assortment of romantic
nick-names for her including Cara Mia ("My beloved"), Tish (Shortened
version of Morticia), Querida ("The woman I desire"). Upon hearing a single word
from her in French he will begin kissing Morticia, starting at her wrist
and working his way up her arm to her shoulder.

mouth, and is the quintessential signature of Gomez Addams. If you don't smoke real cigars, you can always buy
fake ones like those shown to the left at most novelty
shops or online gag stores. These fake cigars look quite realistic and actually give out a
small puff of fake smoke when blown through.
the disembodied hand that lives
with the Addams family and helps Lurch around the house,
is often seen perched on his masters shoulder. A fake hand
like the one to the right can be purchased during the
Halloween season or can be ordered online. You will want to
use flesh colored craft paint to cover over the red colored
bloody stump of the wrist. Or, you can go all out and make a
very realistic silicone life-cast mold of your own hand!
