The It movie has hit theaters everywhere, and now everyone is looking for a Pennywise Costume like crazy to dress up as him for Halloween. The Pennywise costume has become a classic amongst Halloween costumes. In case you don’t know who Pennywise is, he’s the demonic clown from Stephen King’s book IT. It (Pennywise), comes to the town every 27 years in a cycle to eat children for energy before going to dormant to repeat IT’s cycle. IT follows the journey of boy and his friend’s in looking for his brother that was stolen by Pennywise, and ultimately devoured.
The group of friends finally learn, with the help of Ben and his secret love for learning about the towns he lives in, that the town is actually cursed. While at the library, Ben learns that the town has been plagued by unexplained tragedies and child disappearances for centuries. He then encounters ” It ” in the form of the burnt, headless corpse of a young boy. This is where his nightmare with Pennywise begins.
The journey of a group of misfit pre-teens all began when Bill makes his younger brother, Georgie, a homemade sailboat to play out in the rain with along the river to watch it float. The floating boat became a physical metaphor of Pennywise’s favorite phrase to say, “You’ll float down here!”, and “You’ll float, too!”
Take a look at the movie preview! As a Stephen King Fan, I definitely can’t wait to see this movie. I can honestly say that once upon a time, I owned every single book of his…including those under his pen name, Richard Bachman. However, I can’t wait to see the full effect of the new Pennywise Costume that they did in action. It’s definitely a little bit creepier in the previews.

The movie has grossed in over $371 million world wide upon release! It has become the blockbuster movie to finish up the Summer of 2017. It was a movie that was greatly needed in this dry spell of so-so movie releases.
A Pennywise Costume for Everyone
Yes. Everyone wants a Pennywise Costume to try to scare the bejeezus out of people. It doesn’t help that a great part of the population is already afraid of clowns, but now that have a greater fear of clowns; especially for those that hold red balloons. The red balloon just adds to the eeriness factor.
Nope. Nothing too creepy about this image at all!
