In the high courts and palaces of centuries past, the role of the jester was to provide entertainment and amusement to the king, queen, and guests. An evil jester costume takes a decidedly darker approach to this concept, turning more to the vision of the jester Edgar Allan Poe took when writing "Hop Frog." In this lurid tale, the jester turns against his masters and goes on a rampage. Dressing as an evil jester is a disturbing yet fun, choice for a Halloween costume or terrifying addition to a play. These costumes take their basic look from the classic appearance of a jester, such as the joker in a deck of cards. The colors, however, tend to be black and red, or green and black for their morbid, unnerving effect. Some use the bold contrast of black and white, and use skulls as accessories for the shirt and comically creepy hat. A gruesome mask and black gloves add the final chilling touch for a jester you would not want to appear when you called for entertainment. Create an entire family look with a kids' evil jester costume that matches yours and double the blood-chilling impact of your looks.
