We’ve all seen clowns. The history of clowns is cloudy, but one thing is certain, they’ve been around a long, long time. Charlie Chaplin, still watched today, with his many mishaps, always gets a chuckle. Red Skelton had his character, Freddie the Freeloader in the 60’s. Then there is the famous Emmett Kelly from Ringling Brothers Barnum & Bailey Circus. The list of influential clowns is littered with recognizable names and characters.
Some people are afraid of clowns and, to some, this comes as no surprise. The right costume, make-up and demeanor can easily take a family-friendly clown and turn it in to something from your nightmare.
Luckily we have all kinds of clown Halloween costumes. There are funny clown costumes, scary clown costumes, sexy clown costumes and yes – traditional clown costumes. You’ll also find clown shoes, clown wigs, umbrellas and makeup to help you complete your outfit. So if you are looking to be a clown, fun or creepy, you’ve come to the right place!
