Don't clown around, pick out a Clown Mask for Halloween and purchase it today. These performers may be light hearted and fun at circuses and birthday parties, but they can also be menacing on Halloween. With their ghostly white disguises, grotesque grins, exaggerated facial features and big floppy shoes, clowns unnerve many people. Pennywise, from Steven King's It, is perhaps the most well-known. So put on our licensed Pennywise mask so you can spook everyone this year. We also have a licensed Jigsaw from Saw. If you are afraid of these jesters, it may be because at a young age you had a bad experience with one at a birthday party. Or perhaps you are afraid because you heard the story of Weary Willie.
Emmett Kelly Sr. created the persona of Weary Willie, the sad hobo clown. His wife divorced him because the character began to take over his personality. His son, Emmett Jr., began performing as Willie and he too was apparently taken over by the hobo's personality. Eventually, Emmett Junior's son, Paul, took over as Weird Willie, but he was even more unstable than his father and grandfather. He was eventually arrested for the murder of two men. Paul claimed that Willie was his accomplish in the killings. This was in 1978, the same year John Wayne Gacy, who performed as Pogo the clown, was arrested for a series of murders.
