A Wednesday Addams Day of the Dead

Wednesday Addams

As a youngster, the original Addams Family was one of my favorite shows on TV – I wanted to grow up to be the beautiful Morticia all sleek in her spider dress and darkly sarcastic. When they made the newer movie with Christina Ricci cast as Wednesday, I thought she nailed the part as no one else could have. And she has such great character to her face with that long forehead and those round deep eyes, that she begged to be painted.

Lady Agatha

Lady Agatha - Patrushka

Meet Agatha (played by Saoirse Ronan) from the film – The Grand Budapest Hotel.  I loved her character in the movie and all the directorial works of Wes Anderson.

I must say, I find that girl utterly delightful. Flat as a board, enormous birthmark the shape of Mexico over half her face, sweating for hours on end in that sweltering kitchen, while Mendl, genius though he is, looms over her like a hulking gorilla. Yet without question, without fail, always and invariably, she’s exceedingly lovely.  – Quote from the film, by M. Gustave
