Scary Clown 

Clowns have always been a legitimate fear for a lot of people for many years. This can be due to the popularity of evil clowns in pop culture such as Pennywise in Stephen King’s movies. Psychologists have explored the irrational fear of clowns and linked it to the clown’s makeup. When someone has that much of their face covered, it is difficult to tell who they are or how they feel. With a fake smile or frown painted on, it is difficult to gage someone’s emotions which makes it harder to trust them or predict what they’re gonna do. Evil clown looks can be simple, sexy, or for the scarier look add a little fake blood.
