New Year, New Costumes

With the holidays behind us, and a whole new year beginning, we can finally take a moment to relax…and start working on this year’s Halloween costume! It’s never too early to start thinking of costume ideas and getting all the pieces together for something great. If you are looking to go as something classic this year, why not consider looking into Scary Clowns?

A staple costume in the Halloween world, Scary Clowns provide opportunity for endless variety. In addition, these costumes can be as simple or complicated as you like, while still looking the part of a Scary Clown. When tackling a costume like this, there are a few different avenues to take depending on the amount of time/effort you can spend, how much you money want to spend, the look you are going for and what’s available to you in your area.

The most important part of any Scary Clown costume is the face. While most costumes require some sort of elaborate clothing to pull off a look, Scary Clowns focus attention to the face, typically with make-up or some sort of mask. For those willing to experiment, and have the time to do so, make-up is the way to go. Before looking at what make-up you might need, always try to draw out the face you want or find a picture of a Scary Clown you want to recreate. From this you will know what colors you are looking for, as well as what you might need to apply it all. Regardless of what you decide on, you will always want to start with a Clown White Creme Foundation. You can apply it thick, to get a traditional clown look, or apply it thin so the make-up looks old, worn and cracked. With creme foundation in place, figure out a plan to apply your other colors and patterns. Use whatever make-up applicator you want, although foam wedges seem to work best for this sort of make-up work. If this is your first time trying this out, or if the Scary Clown face you want is particularly complicated, make sure to practice applying before Halloween. Make-up is a great tool to use, but can take some time getting used to. For those who do not have the time or desire to deal with make-up, a number of Scary Clown masks exist for your Halloween needs. Ranging from creepy to grotesque, Scary Clown masks can be found at brick and mortar stores, as well as online. Make sure to purchase early, especially if ordering online, to ensure the mask fits and looks the way you want. Nothing is worse than wearing a mask you cannot see or breathe well in.
