In “IT,” a group of brave kids who Pennywise has personally targeted decides enough is enough. They band together and try to stop the clown by killing it. Pennywise seems to always be one step ahead of them at every turn, which makes hunting him down and finishing him off hard to stop. The movie begins with Pennywise luring one of the main characters’ brothers down a storm drain and ends in the clown’s demise. 

If you love the 2017 remake of IT, you’re sure to love dressing in your own IT costume. To dress like Pennywise, you will need Pennywise Costume, IT Pennywise Mask, White Gloves, Cosplay Boots, and Red Balloons. Put all items together, and you’re ready to send chills down the spine of anyone at your next horror event or Halloween party.


IT Cosplay Costume

The IT costume is one that every horror movie cosplayer should try out at least once. Everything about the Pennywise costume is dramatic and frightening, as you might expect. You’ll need to get every piece just right to pull it off properly. 

Begin with a ready-to-wear costume of Pennywise, as it is a very specific garment that might be difficult to replicate if you aren’t a seamstress. For the wig, you’ll need a dark orange clown wig that you can style to look like his. Do your best to find a pair of boots made to replicate his or that look close to them.

His face is as important as his attire. He has an all-white face that you can recreate using white face paint. Pennywise wears a creepy smile that is outlined in red. The red runs up to his eyebrows. Using red face paint, you should be able to replicate it with ease. One of Pennywise’s signature items is the red balloon that floats around whenever he is nearby. He sometimes carries it around. Grab some red balloons you can carry around with you to really make it accurate.
