A Clown (non scary!)
Looking back at Halloween as a child, we’re sure there’s not many of us who haven’t dabbled in a bit of face paint! So much so, lots of us probably have some left over in our cupboards!
And nothing says face paint, like a clown! Now, what could be seen as potentially risky, with 53% of the population admitting to their fear of clowns, there’s a great opportunity here to get really creative, and let your artistic flair shine!
Without making too much of a mess of the bathroom sink, a clown costume really focuses on the face. So, you’ll need access to some inspirational photos, a steady hand and your paintbrushes at the ready, what might take a few tries to get right, this costume really is great for those who enjoy getting stuck in.
In terms of clothes, the only rule, unless you’re going for something a bit more sinister (which we probably wouldn’t recommend given the previously mentioned statistic!) is colour! Whether that be an old pair of dungarees and a brightly coloured shirt, some corduroy trousers and a funky shirt, it’s really up to you!
You could opt for a blazer to give a more professional look, or even steal a pair of your dads old braces to really bring the costume together! To round off the classic clown costume, we think brogues or bright caterpillar boots are a great shoe choice, and comfy enough to wear all day long.
If you are, however, one of the 53% that have a fear of clowns, you could opt for the scarecrow instead! Another costume which allows for plenty of face paint, don’t forget to include the classic sewn-up mouth, rosy red cheeks and your best straw hat.
