The supernatural black comedy introduces us to the close knit and chaotic Addams family who have a very macabre lifestyle. With endless amounts of money and seemingly indestructible natures, no harm ever seems to come to them. Their eldest son Pugsley can best be described as sister Wednesday’s sidekick and unwitting accomplice, just as much as her latest victim. 

The budding inventor is often seen tinkering with a guillotine, being strapped into an electric chair or carrying around a bottle or two of poison. Always hopeful he will have the opportunity to use one, particularly on a sibling to inflict some joyful pain.

How to Re-Create Every Pugsley Addams Look

The Addams Family (1991)

Every Pugsley Addams costume requires to start with a round neck black and white striped shirt and black dress shorts, to create the uniform of choice for the young Mr Addams. Pugsley, like most of his family, prefers to keep his look on the dark and gothic side, choosing to pair his shirt and shorts with black socks and black oxford shoes. 

To style yourself for your Pugsley Addams costume will require a selection of hair gel. Like many young boys Pugsley chooses to keep his hair short but with a tiny spikable fringe at the front. Create the spikes with hair gel, and push them up so they are standing straight up from your head.

But despite all the macabre and torture, the Addams are a very genourous and kind family. It isn’t their fault that other people can’t see that, and think that their ways are unusual and scary.
