Scary Clown Faces

Updated on January 2, 2017

Are You Afraid Of Scary Clown Faces?

Did you know that lots of people are very afraid of Scary Clown Faces? There's even a name for fear of clowns, it's Coulrophobia. That's a fairly new word, in fact, it wasn't around in the 1970s. What happened in the 80's with clowns? I think it has a lot to do with horror writers and horror movies who turned a friendly and sometimes sad character into an evil murderer!

Pennywise, the killer clown from It by Stephen King and Killer Klowns From Outer Space are just two of the many movies that portrait clowns as murdering maniacs! The only good thing that's come of this new fear is it gives us the opportunity to create some frighteningly scary Halloween costumes using makeup. It's easy to give yourself the scariest of the scary clown faces using Halloween makeup and some latex accessories. Latex prosthetics and liquid latex have really helped change the face of Halloween costumes today. We can, at home, create some extreme makeup looks that used to only come out of FX makeup studios. Some of these scary clown faces are very detailed but some are quite simple, as you can see from my scary clown picture.

Cole Porter Clown Quote

Cole Porter: "All the world loves a clown"


Scary Clown Faces

I am not afraid of scary clown faces but i know many people who are. When you are dressing up and creating a horrible evil, killer clown look for yourself, remember not to intentionally scare anyone, particularly the children. Living in this changing world, they will have enough to deal with. So when you spot kids around try a sport a smile. It will be an ugly smile I am sure, but the kids will hopefully recognize it as a friendly gesture.
