This classic joker costume is perfect for kids who love clowning around.

Materials
  • Colored face paints
  • Makeup brush and sponge
  • Nylon tulle
  • String
  • Curly wig

Instructions

With a damp sponge, apply white face paint to your child's entire face, including his eyebrows. Use a small makeup brush to paint his upper and lower eyelids white.

Once the base coat dries (it usually takes just a few minutes), brush on facial features: a green diamond and blue star to accentuate his eyes, a round red nose and full red lips. Finish up with pointy red eyebrows about an inch above his real brows.

To make a clown collar, start with a 7- by 36-inch piece of nylon tulle (available at fabric stores). Thread string through the mesh along one long edge, gathering the collar as you go. Then tie the string ends into a bow behind your child's neck.

To complete the look, add a curly wig and baggy clothes (overalls or pajamas will do the trick) to the collar.

    CLOWN COSTUME IDEAS - HOW TO MAKE YOUR OWN CLOWN COSTUME

    As you browsed through our collection of costumes that reflect the humor, mystery and appeal of clowns, it is quite likely that you received inspiration on creating your own clown costume. You may create a costume that reflects a jovial clown, a sad clown, a traveling clown, a funny clown, and even a frightening jester-type clown – the choice is yours.

    Below, you will be provided with instructions on just one of many clown costume ideas. If you are a beginner, or are simply searching for an inexpensive or simple costume idea, you are sure to benefit from these instructions. As with any costume, personalization is the key to success. While the following instructions are quite basic, they may provide you with the ability to come up with your own kids clown costume, or a costume for a teenager or adult:

    Instructions for a Basic Clown Costume

    Items Needed:

    • Oversized Shirt
    • Oversized Pants
    • Extra Large Shoes
    • Large, Colorful Bow Tie
    • Suspenders
    • Multi-Colored Curly Wig
    • Colorful Gloves
    • Face Makeup

    Step 1: The first step to creating the clown costume is to put all of the clothing pieces on the individual that will be wearing the costume. This includes the oversized shirt, the oversized pants, and the gloves.

    Step 2: Next, you will need to tuck the shirt into the pants, leaving a couple of sections out of the pants, such as the shirt tail.


    Step 3: Now you should place the suspenders on the pants and over the body.

    Step 4: Once the suspenders are in place, put the bow tie on the shirt.

    Step 5: Now, place the large shoes on the individual wearing the costume.

    Step 6: Once all of the clothing pieces are on, place the wig on the head.

    Step 7: The last step is to put the face makeup on the person wearing the costume. In most instances, the face should be white, the nose and lips should be red, and eyebrows should be drawn on the face. You may also elect to add freckles, and even draw an extra-large smile onto the face.
