I undertook making this Pennywise the Clown Costume with the aim of getting it nearest the original as possible. With no experience on a sewing machine I perhaps ambitiously purchased my clown costume pattern and sourced the best matching material I could find and cut the sections to size. In the end the sewing side took quite some time but with a pretty good result I think.

Getting the face correct was key for the costume and after trimming a full wig to size, applying the correct make-up and inserting my prosthetic teeth I attempted to insert some lenses in the style of the clown late in the film. Being a non-lens wearer this proved one step too far and instead my girlfriend wore the lenses adding something to her own costume.

The end result was an immediate crowd pleaser to the extent I had security guards in our local take-away approaching me for pictures with them.

I have since added to the clown ruff to insert the coloured layer from the original film and make the costume as near perfect as I could.
