inbugsdrawers 's Thoughts:

For Halloween I wanted a costume that people wore in the past before the packaged costumes that are consumed by masses today. After a little research I came upon the Pierrotte, a sad clown that was used as a stock character of mime and Commedia dell’Arte. I saw pictures of this clown everywhere – it was the hippie costume of its time! My location in this picture, the Exorcist Steps in Georgetown, D.C.

Amazing costume - I really love this. Amazing lace dress and I love the black round dots on your dress and hat. The photograph, the B&W, the mood, the facial expression - awesome, totally captures the theme. I actually went for a sad/dark clown costume as well but uhh... I love yours haha :) faved. so awesome :)
