About Scary Clown Costumes
Clowns may be the funniest entertainers at the circus, but outside the big top, they can be downright creepy. Scary clown costumes may feature a latex mask with a pale face, sharp-toothed smirk, and hastily stitched scars, or they may include a full frightening outfit, such as a bright yellow jumpsuit with massive pom-pom buttons. Classic horror costumes take their inspiration from Pennywise from Stephen King's "It," the red-haired clown that tempts his victims with balloons and cotton candy. Another popular look is the evil jester in black and white, rather than the traditional rainbow of colors. These costumes are a popular option for Halloween parties for both kids and adults. When putting together kids' scary clown costumes, be sure to tone down the terror so little partygoers do not get nightmares. For an adult party, go wild, and add in some big clown shoes and arched eyebrows for a sinister look.
