How to Dress Like a Clown


Dressing up as a clown is a fun and inexpensive way to liven up a children's party. It is also a fast and easy way to prepare for a costume party. Clown costumes do not have to cost a lot of money or involve thick, messy makeup. All it takes to don an interesting and effective clown costume is some creativity and some clothes.

Things You'll Need

  • Shoes
  • Colored laces
  • Oversized pants
  • Oversized shirt
  • Suspenders
  • Hat
  • Brightly colored tie
  • Costume makeup or flour
  • Lipstick

Clown Clothes

  • Wear an oversized and brightly colored shirt.

  • Put on oversized pants and attach them with suspenders.

  • Replace the shoelaces in your shoes with brightly colored laces. Tie them with multiple-bit loops.

  • Put on a wide tie, worn long. Tie it improperly-even in a knot with a little tip sticking out will work.

  • Now put on your hat, preferably oversized or crooked.

Clown Makeup

  • Paint your face white. Costume makeup works very well. If that is not available, flour applied to a slightly damp face works as well. You may have to reapply the flour after a few hours.

  • Draw semicircles above your eyes that extend above your eyebrows.

  • Draw lines from the top, bottom and sides of each of your eyes.

  • Apply lipstick, drawing circles at the crease.

  • Color the cheeks in one large circle or five small circles.

  • Paint the tip of your nose red.

Tips & Warnings

  • Children's shoelaces work well but usually are too short. To compensate, tie two together.
  • You also can purchase complete clown outfits at stores, but usually clothes you have around your house will do.
  • Party stores usually have silly hats that are fun. If you can't find one, attaching large plastic flowers and paper windmills onto an ordinary hat gives a similar effect.
  • Overdrawing the mouth in the shape of a permanent smile is another easy trick.
