Circus Clown Costumes
A circus clown theme is an excellent choice for costume parties whether it be for children or adults. The more sinister clown costumes that are available make for great Halloween costumes for older boys and tweenies. As you would expect clown costumes come in a number of different styles some focusing on the thoughtful and reflective Pierrot style of clown, or the Harlequin clown, who is often seen as the leader of the group carrying a slapstick with which he exerts his control, albeit that he inevitably loses the stick and the group use it against him.
With the exception of Pierrot and Harlequin, clowns will be brightly dressed and can either have a bald head or colourful mop head so finding a clown costume for your child should be easy. Patterns for clown costumes are readily available from larger haberdashers and colourful fabrics are all you would need. If making a fancy dress is too time consuming due to the popularity of the theme, clown costumes are readily available all year round. At Karnival Costumes we have a huge collection of clown outfits in all styles and sizes. And we have a huge collection of clown costume accessories to make sure that the outfit is completed perfectly. and if at the back of your mind you're aware that there is a recognised phobia for those afraid of clowns, it's technical name is Coulrophobia. In this section we've kept our Horror Clowns (or Klownz as they like to be known) separate from the rest so there should be no sleepless nights!
