A Lot Of People Will Be Dressed As Creepy Clowns This Halloween

If you don’t like clowns you may want to stay in on Halloween this year. Costume retailers report they’re selling out of clown-related costume items, and they’re attributing the up-tick in sales with the rise in creepy clown sightings the past few months across the U.S. An informal poll of retailers reveals that the most popular clown costumes are Pennywise, from Stephen King’s “It” and “Twisty” from “American Horror Story: Freak Show.” At HalloweenCostumes.com, searches for clown costumes are up 50 percent and sales of scary clown costumes are up 40 percent from a year ago.
