Clowns have been around for centuries but their function has largely been the same throughout the ages, and that is to entertain. From the royal court jesters to the circus clowns that we revere today, clowns have become a staple character in our culture. Their extremely large facial features exacerbate whatever emotion they are trying to portray, and getting the clown look just right is an important part of dressing up as one.
Very few costume looks rely as heavily on the appropriate make up application and choice of accessories, as does that of the clown. From the really crazy clown hair all the way down to the obnoxiously large clown shoes, a clown really is all about the perfect use of make up and accessories.
Our clown make up kits will give you a great start in creating that perfect clown face. Of course you will need an appropriate nose, perhaps even the classic very red and very bulbous honker that many clowns have been known to sport. Hair is the best way to top off your clown look, and a brightly colored Afro style is the traditional clown look, although we have many variations on this clown hair theme, including Bozo styles and plenty of goofy hats to throw on top. Silly oversized shoes are a necessity for a proper clown—make sure you get yours! Add a few props and pranks to make your clown act super obnoxious as well as hilarious. Ketchup bottles that squirt string, pop guns that spit out a flag that says ‘bang,’ and of course, the traditional clown’s ‘horn’ are all part of our huge clown accessory collection and make it super easy to find just what you need for your fun night spent clowning around.
