Circus Halloween costumes are here, and the time for the big top is back again. From the olden days when the circus was the most entertaining and anticipated event of the season, to modern circuses, almost everyone has a love deep in their polka dot heart for clowns, gypsies, and the big top.
P.T. Barnum knew exactly how to entertain a crowd with clowns, lions and tigers and bears, and every type of oddity known to man. Dancing bears, courageous lion tamers, acrobats galore and high wire acts entertaining anxious and awe struck crowds. Clowns created animal balloons and drew smiles with the hijinks and shenanigans, while the ring mistress called out the events and wowed the throngs of onlookers with her wit and command of the events. From Mr. Barnum to the Ringling Brothers circus that still exists today, everyone knows the circus in one form or the other.
What better way is there to show your love for adventure and that old entertainment spirit than to deck yourself out in a circus costume? From the bumbling and stumbling clowns with their over-sized shoes and exaggerated makeup to polka dotted jugglers and fire eating gypsies, there is a circus costume for the young at heart and body. Men's costumes can be pin striped or polka dotted and they can be knife throwers and jugglers, they can wear makeup like a clown or not. Children have the best variety of costumes, as they can be a mini clown or gypsy, or even a tiny lion tamer. Women are not lacking options though, women had a huge role in the circus in yester year and even today. You can be as creative as you want under the big top and within the three-ring service. You do not have to be P.T. Barnum or Mortimer to entertain with all of the wonderful options available to you with these fantastic Halloween costumes. Buy circus costumes with your personality in mind, and take over in the center of the circus to show everyone the thrills and fun of the circus.
