Halloween Extravaganza Day 7: Morticia Addams Vs Lily Munster – A Fashion History Smackdown!

Gretchen as Morticia

Hello, my dearies! I’m thrilled to bring you a bit of Halloween fashion history. We’ll be exploring the visual references behind the iconic Lily Munster and Morticia Addams costume design. I just adore these two ladies with everything in my spooky little heart, so I wanted to explore the throughlines from Medieval fashion and ‘30s glam to their iconic gowns on ‘60s sitcoms. Plus, a showdown! In a battle of morbid beauties, there can only be one: I make my case for my favorite glamour ghoul.
