Back in July we got a first look at Bill Skarsgard in his Pennywise the clown makeup, now we’ve got a look at the full costume thanks to Entertainment Weekly. Emmy winning costume designer Janie Bryant (Deadwood, Madmen) has certainly delivered a costume and look that will get fans talking. Are you ready to revisit that clown that scared the crap out of you back in the day?
While it is hard to see some of the coloring of the costume, that old school clown outfit is fantastically horrific. Here’s her take on the costume and character:
The costume definitely incorporates all these otherworldly past lives, if you will. He is definitely a clown from a different time.
There is almost a doll-like quality to the costume: The pants being short, the high waistline of the jacket, and the fit of the costume is a very important element. It gives the character a child-like quality.
It’s definitely creepy looking, but in a way that you can’t look away. What do you think of the design? While this is a good look, we’ll really know if Skarsgard can pull it off September 8th, 2017.
