Ok ... so what's creepy and scary and frightening and will make the weak-hearted cry?

No, not teenagers. (Although, yes ... but not in this case.)

Clowns.

They're scary, and you know it. I think I'll have some Murder Clowns, and stalker Clowns, and "Just standing in the bushes staring at you" clowns ...

AtmosFX makes a pretty good Clown Theme projection for the window or door, so I can do that. Broken carnival music ... dancing multi-colored lights ... bloody balloons ...

Yeah. This could work.

We did a clown/creepy "carnevil" theme a few years back and it was without a doubt our most un-nerving haunt to date. So many people were freaked out.

I'm working on all sorts of different clown faces. Each type of clown has a unique feel to it. The chaotic clowns are by far the most creepy to me ... the smearing makeup, the dirty costume. But for my face, I think I'm going to go with this:



It's a foam prosthetic that I painted. I have to try out different wigs and hats until I find the combo I like. Thank goodness for photoshop. It makes that task much easier.

Here are two more I've done this week:





I have a couple of really inexpensive Tyvek Hazmat suits that I'm going to paint and use as clown suits.

I'm really having fun with this one.

These are brilliant! I really like the zombie looking one with the crazy orange hair, it has an unsettled look to it. The use of different eye sizes too was a great way to convey that feeling, messes with the humans naturally inclination to symmetry!

And here's a Hobo Clown. I took one of my original monster masks and reached up inside and folded his fangs inside, then glued his mouth shut. Give him a wine bottle and he looks sad and pathetic. Give him a bloody knife and he looks like he'd stab you for 35¢.

This is a store-bought. It's hard plastic with a hinged mouth. VERY inexpensive (or I wouldn't have bought it!) All I did was glue in some beady little eyes.

Another store-bought ... just the mask. Cheap plastic half-mask, but was only $2.00 at WalMart. I had the other accessories.

(I have to admit, it's so much easier to drop in the images now!)

I’ve been banned by the wife from ever doing a clown theme. Shame, because I would love to do some creepy clown tricks.

One of the best things I saw on some haunted house video was a mirrored room with all these mannequins dressed up as clowns.. or were they? A couple live actors dispersed amongst the “dummies” made for great jump scares.

Also would love to recreate the scene in Hell House with the three clowns turning their heads.
