After all who is not scared of killer clowns.
Pennywise Costume – IT
When it comes to making you own homemade DIY Pennywise costume you will find the process a lot easier than it may appear. There is also the option of buying a readymade Pennywise costume which we will look at towards the bottom of this guide. Starting with the DIY version here is a complete list of everything that you will need to make a homemade Pennywise costume from IT.
Pennywise Clown Costume
|The most important article of clothing you will need when making your Pennywise fancy dress is a clown costume.
You can use any white clown costume but it is worth pointing out that you can buy perfect replicas of the one seen in the IT movie.
|When it comes to replicating the face of this character you have two options. You can use makeup to replicate the face or you could use a Pennywise mask.
We would recommend using a Pennywise mask.
|You will need a pair of clown shoes (boots) when making this IT costume.
You can use any pair of white boots but we would recommend using a pair of replica boots of the ones worn by the clown in the movie.
|A pair of white gloves will be needed when making your own DIY Pennywise costume.
The best thing you can use here is a pair of white waiter gloves as they look very much like the character wears in IT.
Pennywise Satin Ribbon
|If you have chosen a simple white clown costume you will likely need to make your own collar.
This fluffy collar can be made using silk ribbon which can be added to the neck of the clown costume.
Pennywise Pom Poms
|Again, if you have chosen a simple white clown costume you will likely need to add red pom poms.
These should be added to look like buttons on the front of the clown suit. They should also be added to the toes of your shoes.
|No IT costume would ever be complete without including a red balloon.
Ideally this balloon should be filled with helium. However, it could also be attached to a stick to make it appear that it is floating.
Pennywise Complete Costume
|As we pointed out at the star of this guide it is possible to buy and use a readymade Pennywise costume.
There are several readymade versions of this fancy dress available which range in price and quality.
