The making of a clown costume, using a jumpsuit pattern–
The finished product looks a little crazy on the hanger but I assure you it looks good on- with the nose and clown red wig, I can wait to see him riding the unicycle in this outfit. I added a bit or flashy rick rack to the collar ruffle and went with the traditional three pom-poms over the wacky clown tie.
I think we will forgo the ginormous clown shoes. His black Chuck Taylor’s look just as good. This clown has very serious plans for trick-or-treating until he drops or until the bag is too heavy for a human being to carry- being that Halloween falls on a Friday this year- no getting up early, in-school candy hangover to deal with the next day. Floppy cartoon shoes will only slow him down, and we can’t have that now can we. I say bring it on. We aren’t a big sugared cereal, candy in the cupboards sort of family- so we let it all hang out on Halloween, get your fill my darling little pranksters. And I might be skimming a few favorites of the top of those overflowing treat bags too.
Oh, I love Halloween for so many reasons. To see the clown on Halloween look here.
