You're right Amylady, that was nice, with the old people too. And I liked that most just wore their regular face with a red nose, so many people are scared of clowns!!

I am getting into clowning now---I read every book on clowning I could find when I was in middle school and even signed up for a clowning class in our area, but I was the only one so they cancelled it-

Working in a childrens hospital was the original idea, but where I live now, there is none (3 hours away is the closest) so a nursing home would be more available.


Also I wore my costume on Halloween to the local preschool where I do story time. Only one little girl was scared of me, she just stared at me the whole time and wouldn't talk or engage with me.

I don't know how the fear started (the movie IT?--which I think is stupid BTW)---but I feel bad for people who are freaked out by clowns--Little kids understandable---they are really colorful, have crazy faces, different hair, big feet--- that can be scary cause it is so different, but older people---I just don't get it.

I should have been a clown....

I felt the calling for many years.

But I also felt the calling to be a baseball umpire.

You laugh, but true story...I even registered for umpire school but had to turn it down because I couldn't afford to keep my apartment AND be at school simultaneously.

Miss Ronnie---I am NOT laughing---Do it---go online learn how to do it and then do it for little leauge (sp?) or something---If you have a dream follow it! Go for it!

Plus, as for the clown we have some pretty amazing resources on here---go for it.

I am trying to find some good one person clowning ideas---Youtube is NO help at all--at least not with what I am typing in.

maybe I will start a clown thread---hummm--yep--off to do that right now!

I have a serious fear of clowns and it actually started when I was a kid...my Dad told me a scary but true story about John Wayne Gacy who used to work as a clown. I live close to the area that Gacy "operated" in so it has freaked me out ever since... It really is a serious problem for some people. I am struggling with overcoming my "Coulrophobia" now that I may have to work along side some. I have actually considered therapy or just giving up on painting because it has been so hard. I have noticed that as long as I know the person that is in the clown attire I am fine though. And on tv, photos, dolls, etc. don't bother me...
