Despite a certain popular movie in the theaters right now, clowns still remain a solid costume choice for Halloween. I know I love to see sweet faced little clowns come to my door to Trick or Treat. The nice thing about this wig is that its sturdy enough for make believe play well after the holiday. Its a fiddly pattern, so I probably wont make this unless by special request.
