Let's be honest It … Pennywise will be the Halloween costume that will be defeated this year. It's frightening, easy enough to take off, and with the gigantic cash register of the original movie and the hit status of the sequel, released in September, everyone and their dog will get your costume.
Given that Pennywise is so popular, though, you can be sure that a whole bunch of clowns will hit some white face paint and red noses for Samhain. To help you stand out in the sea of creepy red and white faces, we have broken down not one, but two of the best Pennywise tutorials on the internet.
Easy mode: Old-School Pennywise
If you are in a hurry or don't want to bother with all the details, you can use BaptismOnFire & # 39; s costume tutorial for the Tim Curry version of Pennywise from the & # 39; 90 TV adaptation of Stephen King & # 39; s horror novel (make sure you call yourself & # 39; OG Pennywise & # 39; if you're at a party next to another Pennywise state).
Here's what you & # 39; I have to start with the video above. Below are step-by-step instructions to help you, in case you don't like videos & # 39; s so much.
Step 1: Add base coat
Put on your wig so that you don't have to apply more face paint than necessary is. Using a cotton swab, apply liquid latex to the edge of the wig so that it fits seamlessly into your actual forehead. While you wait until it is dry, apply your white face paint thickly on the rest of your face thick with your largest brush, before covering the cap / latex seam with face paint.
Step 2: Adding Black Details
While the white paint is still slightly wet, add some Apply black face paint to your eyelids and mix it evenly to achieve a gray eye shadow effect. Carefully draw eyebrows and tear stripes with black face paint. To keep the lines clear, wait until the white paint is completely dry and then paint the lines with a single self-confident line.
