Thinking about dressing up as a clown this year for Halloween? Well, with nearly 100 clown and circus themed fancy dress products to choose from, Smiffys-Liverpool is the ideal place to shop for clown Halloween costumes.

Why Are Clowns So Scary?

Coulrophobia (the fear of clowns), is a common phobia within children and can continue well into adulthood. People who suffer from this fear often find it difficult to go to fairs, circuses, or theme parks. Some people with Coulrophobia are even afraid of Father Christmas.

Clowns are often associated with children’s parties and other fun activities. For example, Ronald McDonald, the mascot for the popular fast-food chain Mcdonalds is a clown. So why are so many people terrified of what others would consider to be a lovable and friendly children’s character?

There are lots of reasons which may contribute to the fear of clowns. Firstly there’s the makeup, this makeup can result in both the clown’s feelings and emotions being hidden from others. This isn’t the only aspect of the makeup that makes clowns scary, the over-exaggerated and distorted facial expressions in the makeup can also add to the fear. Oversized lips and eyebrows mean that the human brain perceives the clown as human, but ‘slightly odd’, which could explain why they’re so unsettling if not scary.

Another reason is due to the nature of how clowns act. There’s a lot of suspense in both comedy and terror; combine this with the often mischievous nature of clown humour with practical jokes, making it easy to see why some people might not find the idea of clowns amusing, after all comedy like many forms of art is subjective, what one person may find hilarious another may find horrific or boring.

Searching For Clown Costume Inspiration?

If you’re looking for clown costume inspiration, film and television are fantastic sources. Two particularly great examples for terrifying clowns for Halloween fancy dress are Pennywise from the films and TV miniseries adapted from the terrifying novel written by Stephen King, or the Joker a DC comic book villain who has been brought to life by many actors and voice actors over the years by talented individuals including Mark Hamill, Troy Baker, Heath Ledger, and Cesar Romero.

With regards to Pennywise costumes, did you know that according to some researchers, the number of Coulrophobia cases increased after the 1990s when IT was released? So if you’re looking for a terrifying costume, a clown costume is a great choice, and some might say that Pennywise is one of the scariest clowns out there. So if you’d like to dress up as the bloodcurdlingly scary Pennywise, the Smiffys-Liverpool online fancy dress shop has an awesome Deluxe Pennywise Costume to scare everyone at the party.

However, if you’re more interested in a Joker fancy dress costume, there are lots of options to choose from, thanks to the diversity and many different iterations of the comic book villain. In fact, due to the diversity of the character The Joker is a great choice for a group costume, perhaps you and your friends could all dress up as different versions of the joker, our online store has a variety of different Joker costumes to choose from including Suicide Squad, the Dark Knight, and the Arkham versions of the Joker.
