Default Halloweeen 1950 And 1951

These pics are "yours truly" in a couple of Halloween costumes when I was a kid. The first is from 1950 and the "clown" costume was made by my mother for Halloween 1951 when I was 5 years old.

The mask was the creepiest part of the costume.

Thank You....the clown hat was made by using the witches hat and covering it with cloth. My mom was always sewing and knitting back then because we didn't have a lot of money.

If a kid comes to my door looking like either of those photos they'll get all the candy.

Does that mean that you're afraid of clowns?

You're scared? Think of all the people I scared while knocking on their door at Halloween. Plus, we had a Halloween party in school that year and we all wore our costumes. Freddy Kreuger and Michael Meyers have nothing on me.
Now.....about this friendship stuff.....If we ever meet, I promise that I won't wear the clown suit.

I think it'd be more likely that they'd be hiding under their beds.

And who could blame them, because serial killer John Wayne Gacy used to dress as a clown.

Understood, and for the record to anyone else reading this thread, I do NOT recommend actually going to someone's house dressed as a clown as they might freak out and shoot first before asking questions !

(this thread intended for fun only, do not actually try it yourself )

Funny stuff !
My son went and saw " The Joker " with Joaquin Phoenix and said it was really intense . He also said the audience was totally silent thru the whole movie and that he could see how it could possibly push an already emotionally disturbed person over the edge .
I'm going to wait to watch it when it comes out in video or HBO in the safety of my own home .
