Addams Family Papercraft

Papercraft MansionWell, this is très adorable.*

Papercraft artist Alan Ronay creates teensy little paper replicas of famous TV interiors: The apartment from I Love Lucy, the house from The Golden Girls, and this, the Addams Family mansion.

He’s gone to great lengths to match fine detail, even noting that he used a slightly purple tint “to give it that 1960s CRT nostalgia feel.” Some of the model’s highlights include:

– You can see the shadow of Kitty Kat, the family lion, coming down the stairs.
– A portrait of Gomez’s business partner is hanging on the wall.
– Pierre the moose is hanging on the wall over the fireplace.
– Thing is popping out of a box on the harpsichord.
– Morticia’s peacock chair.
– Cousin Farouk is hanging on the wall.
– A copy of TV Guide with the Addams Family on the cover.

It even includes standee cutouts of Gomez, Morticia, Lurch, and Cousin Itt (although there’s no explanation of why the other characters were excluded).

He’s selling the model, fully assembled, for $345, but you can also buy a downloadable DIY version for $7.95. Even if you don’t have the patience to carefully cut out and assemble the full kit, it seems to me that certain elements would be fantastic incorporated into artwork or party invitations. You could also print out a bunch of single easy-to-assemble pieces like Thing and his box to include in goodie bags.

It’s a nice-looking kit, and if you’ve already cut your teeth on papercraft projects like the ones at RavensBlight and are ready to move up, this looks like it would be a fun project.

    Awesome! It would look great right next to my Edward Gorey’s Dracula set.

    Yes, I know that no one is surprised that I own this.
