Circus Halloween Costumes
Imagine a circus on Halloween. The sky is dark before the show begins, fog hangs low around the tents, and nervous visitors keep an eye out for lurking cast members.

With your bright colored hair and maybe a few balloons in hand, there's a chance to give clowns the rap you think they deserve. Of course, you could also take it the opposite direction entirely….
