Addams Family Costumes - Grandmama

Addams Family Costumes - Grandmama Addams CostumeEudora "Grandmama" Addams
Gomez and Fester's Mother. Eudora is a full time witch and is
licensed through the Department of Witchcraft. While her spells, potions and hexes don't always work out very well, she does try her best. She loves her family very much and tries to help them out with advise and sorcery at every opportunity. She does most of the cooking for the family.

Grandmama Addams Makeup
Use a pale gray-white on face and neck, blood red lip color, heavy black eye liner and lots of mascara. Black fingernail polish. Also, Grandmama Addams is quite old, so you may want to draw on some "wrinkles" using a gray or black eye liner pencil. Just make  a big smile and draw into every crease your face makes then blend in with a cosmetic sponge.


Eudora's hair is always very wild and frizzy looking, so if you don't already have long hair, you'll need to buy a long wig. The "Black and White Vampire" wig pictured to the right is a typical Halloween wig available at Halloween stores and works well for Grandmama Addams hair. You will want to curl the wig with tight curlers just like you would with real hair, then carefully frizz it out with a hair pick and brush until you get the desired style. Lastly, you will want to spray it down with enough hair spray to hold it in place for Halloween night.

While there's no actual "Grandmama Addams" costume, and never has been to our knowledge, the "Classic Witch Costume" works quite well.

The "Classic Witch" costume set includes a black pointy witch hat with attached scarf, a cape and a form-fitting, button up top with a long skirt. The "Classic Witch Costume" costume set and other Addams Family costumes are available at your local costume store.

Addams Family Costumes - Grandmama Addams CostumeGrandmama Addams is well known for wearing a shawl, so you will definitely want to add either a black, gray or dark purple colored one to your Halloween costume set. An assortment of large, gaudy necklaces will finish off the ensemble. Local thrift stores are a great place to find shawl's and cheap costume jewelry. You might want to check out a local Halloween store for a bat, pentagram and other Goth type necklaces.

Grandmama Addams Accessories
A large witches cauldron is the perfect accoutrement for her. Plastic ones can be bought in mass retailers and Halloween shops during the Halloween season. Or, if at a Halloween party she's the best person to serve the punch from a spooky Halloween punch bowl. A witches broom and a deck of fortune telling cards, such as the "Gypsy Witch" cards add a nice touch.

Grandmama Addams Quotes

"A mother knows her son's skull better than anyone."
