    Your ideas for a dress

    Hi everyone !

    I'd like to know what kind of dress you think would fit a free program to The Addams Family Values Soundtrack ? Do you have any ideas (colors - other than black, sleeves, back) ?

    It is not an artistic program so I don't want my dress to look like I stole it from Wednesday's wardrobe

    Thank you !!

    Well...it's the Addams Family. Black is kind of expected. I suppose you could go with a very dark maroon. But it's hard to know without knowing what colours suit you and what styles suit you.

    In fact, I wanted to know if somebody had a different point of view for the color. IMO black is also what suits the music best and in other colors, let's say dark blue or very dark red, I'd be afraid that it would look like a tango dress.

    I have blue eyes, medium brown hair and light skin tone during winter (if it can help).

    I thought I could go with a black dress and black sequins :
    sheer long sleeves, open back... à la Carolina Kostner but in a creepy style
    OR strapless with an angular sweetheart neckline and add some details on the arms.

    Maybe I could rely on my makeup to make it more dramatic (dark red lipstick, for example).

    How does that sound ?

    What about dark grey, something similar in shading to like Farris' FS shirt this season but darker? Black might be too much for someone who is very pale.

    I'm not sure about a low back. Sequinned cobwebs across a low back I could get behind. Maybe a bit of cream lace detail for that old-fashioned look.

    I like the idea of dark grey! Maybe some sort of Adams family themed black belt that steals just enough attention away from the dress itself. I'm better at choosing music for skaters though I must admit. I would maybe consider some black and white striped socks too but maybe that's going too far because they could be purple and black stripes

    If it's Addams, your choices are Wednesday & Morticia.

    I love the socks and the graphic look of the above costume. Also Wednesday wore chintz in a number of episodes, and a kind of Pocahontas outfit in one other.

    This purple with black spiderwebs works, perhaps. With Morticia, the makeup does half thr work

    JLo gets a Morticia effect with dark burgundy

    Ooh, yeah, a smoky gray, maybe starting lighter and gradually darkening as you get to the bottom of the dress. It could be edged in black. The edges could be jagged, like a handkerchief skirt, or angled in one direction. Maybe a spot of red somewhere.
