The only definite plan for 2018 is that my husband wants to dress as Captain Spaulding from House of 1000 corpses. I've decided to do the hat and clown shoes out of paper mache, but what material is used for clown costumes? Is it satin? I know there's is a commercial version of the costume available but my husband is a big and tall guy and I have enough seamstress experience to throw it together. Plus it appears that one leg of the costume that's available is pink(?).
