A little bit of face paint can alter the attitude of your costume altogether! Whether you want to be funny or frightening, the face paint will get you there. The red nose is what makes you a true professional clowner. From Bozo to Patch Adams, all the greats wore the red nose and you can, too! The brighter, the better! Loud pants equal a person who takes clowning seriously (get it?). Not only are the gloves stylish, they are essential to performing illusions and slights of hand. A funny clown must have a funny walk! The oversized shoes help give you that true clown swagger.

Clown Costume Accessories

How do you become the ultimate clown on the town? You add the accessories to your costume so you can get fully into character. The rainbow clown wig is an inexpensive and important piece to any clown costume. One of the most famous clowns in popular culture was Bozo. He delighted thousands in person and on television with his clowning antics. For many clowns before him and after, the big red nose has been an integral part in any clown costume. And now you can rock one, too! Whether you’re a classic clown or a creepy one, you won’t get too far without your Bozo red foam nose. If you’re going to be a silly clown, you can’t have a regular walk. With the Wing Tip Clown (Red/Yellow) Adult Shoes, you’ll be flopping around town in no time! Just make sure you tie those laces.
