Killer Clown Halloween Costumes
Become a Killer Clown for Halloween
One of the most horrifying costumes for Halloween is the killer clown. Clowns, although beloved by most folks, are feared by others. There is actually a named phobia of clowns: coulrophobia, and is named by psychologists as a real phobia under the DSM-IV. Stephen King certainly helped to put the fear of clowns in the world with his best-selling book and subsequent movie release of “It”, a movie starring a blood-thirsty clown known as Pennywise. Perhaps the most famous killer clown of all was John Wayne Gacy. This U.S. serial killer was convicted and executed via lethal injection for torturing, raping and murdering more than thirty men in the seventies. Gacy’s day job? Entertaining kids at birthday parties and other events as Pogo, a fun-loving, balloon blowing clown.
