How to Make a Clown Halloween Costume That Is Not Terrifying
Today I opened up my email to the assignment of my nightmares — I had to write a clown costume tutorial. I immediately broke out in sweats and had a mild panic attack. You see, I (like many other people) am terrified of clowns. Thankfully, it wasn’t a group costume filled with many clowns — it was just Anj as a friendly clown — so my heart rate slowed back down… sort of. Bookmark this tutorial to create a super easy clown costume for Halloween. Bonus: Not only is it simple, but it’s also dirt cheap!
Head to a thrift store and find a striped shirt. The more colorful the better.
Then head to Party City or any other Halloween store, and purchase an oversized foam bow tie and a red foam nose.
For the hair, start by curling every piece with a spiral curling iron. Then back comb like crazy, pin it up like a typical clown wig, back comb again and then add a layer of hairspray to keep it in place.
She’s totally not scary at all (she said as she looked away from her computer screen).
