Nightmares! I hate clowns too. My grandma had a clown painting and I think it triggered my fear.

Yeah, forget the paintings. If you want to scare the kids, just get a giant puppet.

I actually really like clown painting!

That second one im not too big a fan of, but that first one I really like!

But I sorta like stuff that is, or borders on creepy...

Bought these recently!

They're both chalkware. Idk if they're supposed to be the drama masks, or maybe the Scottissue twins(Sofftie and Toughie) from the 1940s.

Anyone have any ideas?

I love that film!

Even better than a REAL clown for creepiness.
We'll just have to get some of ours pixellated for posterity.
Ghhhaahh. Clowns!

BWAAAAAAAAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You may think they're the life of the party, but a bad drunk, is a bad drunk! "Hey man, I jusht gotta tell you, yer my besht friend man, I really love you man..."

This is the one with broken glass in it, and made out of an old dish-washing-liquid bottle. I'm thinking it was in Ladies Home Journal or Better Homes and Garden as a craft you can do at home. "Next issue, how to decorate you fall-out-shelter..."

A couple of pics of my 5 year old daughter wearing the AWESOME yet bizarre hand painted cupie doll head I scored at a yard sale a few years back. Vaguely clow-like, I guess

It also reminds me of something from a Conrad Veidt film; I hope you have it in a place where everyone can see it EVERYDAY!

Aaah, RUN!

While restoring a vintage shotgun, I thought of this:

I wonder how many children don't like ice cream because of this demon?
