I threw this costume together real quick last year. I want to use pretty much the same things except for a different wig & no hat. Also plan on painting my face a little different.

I need some ideas on how to make it look really scary. Anything you think I can add to it then just let me know please.

Which color wig do you guys think would look the best with the red suit? The red, blue & green are sold out already. Click on the link.

MAKEUP KIT, TEETH, DVD & WIGS

Thanks!!!

To me, the socks on your arms make the costume less scary. Perhaps a long-sleeved black shirt, or a white one with "blood" on it and white clown gloves (dirty and bloody). For a wig, nothing says scary clown to me like that awful orange. Maybe tease it out to be real fluffy. A dirty/torn/bloody ugly tie or bow could be added.
Great job on the makeup - your mouth is especially creepy!

Thanks! I'll get rid of the socks & get a white long sleeve shirt with some blood over it. Will also get the gloves too. How would a butchers apron with blood work with this costume?

I think you need to carry a giant syringe nothing creepier than a clown trying to give a big shot... lol and needles creep most people out all by themselves..

I don't know about the blood on the face...it might detract a little from the makeup job. The face is scary is it is, and I don't know if blood on your face would help it.

Blood is not the automatic scary factor.
Keep the arm socks, don't detract from the clown image.

I'd stay as clowny as you want, but have a potato sack stuffed with paper and foam and a recorder playing a child's voice screaming and wailing for mommy.

Just carry it over your shoulder and pretend you don't hear anything.
Wear a tool belt, and load it down with duct tape, rope, knives and large lollipops.

I'll leave that to someone else. You seem to want a graphic, over the top look, not creepy or disturbing (which is great, by the way, it's a fun look) but it's not my style of scary.
I don't wanna give advice in a style I don't practice.
I'll let someone else field this question.

Or you can just keep it simple...."wife beater" tank top, large clown bow tie, suspenders, dickies pants (dirty/bloody it all up). Dirty up the makeup (Batman and Joker style) and your good to go. Instead of the smile, I always go for the frown and accent a mad eyebrow. Personally I dig the bowler hat, but make it smaller so it doesn't take away from you face makeup. Good luck
