Costume Inspiration: The Harlequin Clown

Harlequin Clown Fancy Dress Costumes

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.

Visit Pinterest for a vast selection of boards inspired by the trend, for some great ideas when it comes to accessories, props, hair and make up. Check out the Womens Halloween Fancy Dress Costumes category for all harlequin themed fashion hosiery, gloves and costumes – and get creative!
