There is something rather refined, beautiful and fragile about the unique Harlequin Clown. A big trend for Halloween 2012 and appealing to our more creative customers looking for an alternative, feminine costume. Think bold black and white print, diamonds, hearts and stripes. Opt for a white base on the face and add subtle black shapes, finishing with defined lips and eyebrows. The trick is sharp, defined lines – no smudging – and a steady hand. Mix and match when it comes to tights, stockings and gloves – but keep to the three key colours – white, black and red. The harlequin clown can be as sinister as you like – this will all come across in your make up style and the addition of costume wigs.
Another cheeky sneak peek from the upcoming 2012 Leg Avenue Costume Collection in the form of a right circus hottie. The circus fancy dress theme went global round about the time Britney and Take That decided to theme their albums and music videos with all things lions, trapeze artists and big tents. Club nights, premieres, parties and New Year celebrations starting popping up everywhere with the circus thesis and with it’s bright colours and eccentric costume adaptations its clear to see the appeal. The unisex Ring Master idea has been extremely popular (which may be down to the fact that it’s an excuse to carry a whip) and the 2012 version has just been unveiled. We have to agree that its’ the best yet and we are, as we speak, looking for a matching panther to coordinate this super sexy circus look.
