IT is about to get real with this Pennywise costume

In 1990, Tim Curry starred as Pennywise the Dancing Clown in a mini-series adaptation of Stephen King’s novel IT. And thanks to this film, the entire generation of Millennials grew up somewhat-to-completely horrified of Clowns.  Now, 27 years later Pennywise (AKA It) is back with the promise to terrify the next generation’s youth.   It feeds on the fears of children (and spoiler: It also feeds on children) and a group who calls themselves “The Losers Club” and who were all terrorized by this haunting entity take up the mission of facing their fears and taking down this beast.

Maybe this Halloween you need to face your fears by becoming one with the clown and dressing as Pennywise himself (err… itself).  We’ve decided to put together two versions for your delightful fright: Classic Curry Pennywise and the new Super Scary Skarsgård Pennywise.  And don’t forget your Red Balloon.
