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!

August has arrived and the Halloween 2012 countdown has begun. Our next sneak peek for the season delves straight into the Women’s Fancy Dress category with a close up of the Leg Avenue Pretty Playing Card Costume. Dark, sophisticated and with a nod to the ever popular Wonderland Queen Of Hearts character, this deluxe three piece fancy dress costume includes a peasant top dress with adjustable halter tie, corset style bodice and bold glitter print playing card design. The regal ruffle neck piece is also included. To complete this devastatingly beautiful look, add the black glitter top and the matching stockings, sure to knock the socks of all onlookers for any Halloween themed event. This costume is featured in our Women’s Halloween Costumes collection along with all accessories required. This stunning outfit was chosen by Made In Chelsea’s Chloe Green for last year’s celebrations, who accessorised the costume with a full face of gory make up.
