Cousin Itt is the hairy, odd and enigmatic cousin of Gomez and
Fester Addams. He looks like three foot tall mass of
long, straight hair
from head to toes. His hair color in the New Addams Family is
a shade of dark honey-blonde. He always wears a pair of dark sunglasses, a derby
hat and gloves.
has been know to speak, although it's a
high-pitched gibberish which is only understood by the
members. Like Uncle Fester, Cousin Itt is a confirmed bachelor,
he loves to party
and is known to be quite the ladies man.
someone relatively short to play the role of Cousin Itt
since he's about three foot tall. We recommend
this as a Halloween costume for a child or short adult. Kids
get a kick out of being Cousin Itt since no one can see who
they are, allowing them to cut loose and act as silly as
they want to for the night.
Unfortunately, no one makes a full length
Cousin Itt costume. The only one you will find for sale as a Halloween
costume has fake hair that is only about twenty inches long. This costume, includes a black bowler style hat that the hair is
attached to. The sunglasses and gloves are not included with the costume.
If you choose this costume, just add
black clothing, gloves and sunglasses to complete the look.
This costume can be difficult to see through because of the
veil of hair, so caution
should be used when walking. Anyone wearing this costume
should have someone with them at all times!
Since it can be difficult to see
through all that hair, we suggest that you carefully tape or
glue the fake hair that would be in front of your eye to the
edges of the sunglasses, allowing your to see through the
You might also be able to trim some hair away for the eyes
to create small eye holes, which will be covered by the
sunglasses. We also suggest using larger sunglasses than
those shown in the costume picture (on the main page) to give you a wider field
For making your own Cousin Itt costume we suggest sewing
together a net sack that would fit the body. Cut holes for the hands to
go through. You'd need to buy a large amount of straight hair extension
panels and hot glue them in layers around the net sack. This could be
very costly unless you know someone in the hair styling business that
might be able to order the amount of hair extension panels that you
Another alternative would be to check at a
store that sells material and look for a light weight fake fur material
with long hair. You could then sew it into a large sack to go over the
body, cut slits for your hands and holes for the eyes, which would be
covered by the sunglasses. While you'll never find a fake fur that looks
like real human or animal hair that would be a true Cousin Itt, you
could come up with a pretty good look none the less. When put together
with the other costumes, it would be more than obvious who you are
supposed to be.
You would also need to add the hat and sunglasses and black
glove for your hands. While it's probably more cost effective to
buy the costume if you can find it, making one of your own is still an
