Scary Clown Costumes
Clowns aren't really intended to cause nightmares, but we suspect that most of them end up creating at least a few. But it wasn't until Hollywood started making clowns the villains in horror movies that people started to fear them day and night! The only question is going to be what kind of clown do you want to be? Pennywise is a movie classic, and will be sure to illicit both laughs and screams of terror.
