In the new Netflix series show, Wednesday Addams wears this black gothic dress and attends the Rave'N Dance. This black gothic prom dress is really beautiful and makes me wonder how can we lolitas build up our own gothic prom dress depending on what we already have in our wardrobe.
First of all, let's put up together some Wednesday Addams Vibe gothic lolita coordination together.
Tips on Making a Gothic Lolita Coord for Prom
1. Black is the safest color for gothic.
As the coordinate example above shows, you can put together a gorgeous gothic prom outfit easily in black. As long as you build it around a slight princess-style black dress, which makes sure your whole look feels not too old-school lolita.
2. Dresses with gothic motifs are optional.
This OP set includes a dress, a black overlay, a shirt, a fake collar, a necklace, a choker, a heart-shaped brooch, and a big bowknot clip(the one on the neck).
Finding a dark-themed gothic dress with an air of mystery was not difficult for us. Motifs like butterflies, spiderwebs, roses, and thorns are all very popular in gothic lolita.
On top of those death-related motifs, religious elements, such as pointed collars, cross pendants, and bishop sleeves are also commonly seen in a gothic dress. And the black dress and white collars are always the most typical gothic outfit combination.
The usage of fake collars can actually help you to create a serious gothic look.
3. Choose a dress with a long-length
A long-length gothic lolita dress would be perfect for a prom. The long almost down-to-floor length and tiered skirts remind me of the elegant lady back in the Victorian era. It would be very elegant and mysterious to pair with a mini lace hat, lace gloves, and a pair of elegant lolita heels.
4. Spider accessories are highly recommended
Wednesday Addams is a girl who would like to have spiders as her pet. Therefore, adding some spider-themed accessories to your coordination is highly recommended.
Except for spiders, butterfly-themed accessories are also very recommendable, because the butterfly is often used as a spiritual symbol related to death in some cultures.

5. Add something to your braids
You can use hair clips with ribbons to decorate your braids, just as the one shown above. The dark purple color is also mysterious and could be a highlight in your hair, together with a bag with the purple bowknot, it adds a touch of sweetness to the overall look.
