For Adrienne St. Laurent and her family, Halloween isn’t just a day — it’s a lifestyle.
Fox News reported that the family has been celebrating Halloween with inventive and outrageous costumes for their families since 2016.
They were dressed up as characters. “The Addams Family, “Beetlejuice,” “Coneheads,” “Little Shop of Horrors” “The Jetsons” and “The Simpsons.”
The Indianapolis family includes Adrienne, her husband, Andy, and their two children, Adelyn, 14, and Tate, 11.
“Although we have loved Halloween since our youth, we didn’t intend to make it a major holiday in our family.” Adrienne states. She also reveals that the idea to make such lavish costumes came to her in 2015.
“Tate was four years old when I was washing his laundry and noticed that one of his shirts looked a lot like Pugsley’s shirt in ‘The Addams Family’.” she said. “I thought it would be fun for everyone to dress up in costumes like the ‘Addams Family” characters for the upcoming Halloween.”
And the clever costumes are all made from scratch by Adrienne. To help her vision come to life, she shops at thrift shops and uses materials like felt, hot glue, papier-maché, poster board, and wire hangers.
As expected, the St. Laurent family gets lots of attention when they appear at local festivals and often get stopped on the street to receive praise.
“She adds, “When I told people I made them from scratch, their reactions were even more impressive, so we decided that next year, we would go again dressed in something else.”

Unfortunately, this could be the last year that the family wears their costumes.
“We have some wonderful family memories over the past six years but the children are reaching that age where they are starting to lose faith in it.” Adrienne said. “My daughter was in the second grade when I started. She’s now a freshman in highschool, so it feels like things are coming to an end.”
But they plan on going out with a bang.
“We are planning to do big this year to make our epic final, and we cannot wait to share with everyone what we have created,” she stated.
On InstagramThe family revealed that their 2021 costumes were “Space Balls” characters. They did it as they expected.
