Let's face It … Pennywise will be the Halloween costume to hit this year. It's frightening, easy enough to get through, and with the gigantic grossing of the original movie and the hit status of the sequel released in September, everyone and their pet will get their costume.
Considering that Pennywise is so popular You can bet that there will be a whole bunch of clowns skinning over Samhain with a white complexion and red noses. So that you can stand out from the sea of scary red and white faces, we have broken down not just one, but two of the best Pennywise tutorials on the Internet.
Simple Mode: Pennywise Old School
If you're in a hurry or just do not want to worry about all the details, you can use the BaptismOnFire costume tutorial for the Tim Curry's version of Pennywise from the 90s TV adaptation of Stephen King's Horror Novel (make sure you call yourself "OG Pennywise" if you're at a party next to another Pennywise).
I have to start with the above video. Below is a step-by-step guide that will help you if you are not much involved with videos.
Step 1: Add Base Coat
Put on your wig so you do not have to apply more complexion than you need. Apply liquid latex to the edge of the wig cap with a cotton swab to fit seamlessly into your actual forehead. While waiting for it to dry, use your largest brush to apply a thick white complexion to the rest of your face before covering the cap / latex seam with face paint as well.
Step 2: Adding Black Details
While the white color is still slightly wet, give some black complexion on your eyelids and evenly mix them to achieve a gray eye shadow effect. Carefully draw eyebrows and tear strips with black complexion. To keep the lines crispy, wait until the white color is completely dry and then paint the lines with a single confident stroke.
Step 3: Add Red Details
Apply a thick layer of red complexion to your lips and your nose – do not forget the bottom of your nose and nostrils, as this will harm your clown's nose its rounded quality.
Step 4: Fine Tuning
You may want to be your cruelest Smile in the mirror. But hit your fake teeth and you're done with this Pennywise costume from the 90s! If you can not spice up a clown outfit, just wear a lot of gaudy, mismatched colors with lots of yellow, purple and green.
