Pennywise Clown Mask

Best Halloween Costume for Older Kids to Play the Baddie

Why people love it
  • Realistic mask
  • One-size-fits-most
  • Scary

It’s one of the best latex masks out there and young men will love the scare effect while trick or treating. It’s also 100% non-toxic latex.

Not only is it wildly expensive, but you still need to organize just about everything else to make this costume work.


Okay, you’re not getting a lot for your money here. But, what you will get is quality. This is a terrific mask and it’s definitely going to scare a few people. But, hey, when you’re a tween (boy,especially), that’s the main appeal of Halloween.

We’re really sorry, though, that they couldn’t include a few of the extras you’ll need to complete this costume – namely the shirt and ruffle. But, those items are easy enough to pull together. And, if you’re going all out for a party, then it’s worth it.

The one caveat: most kids won’t even be allowed into the theater to see this movie, but that won’t stop them from talking about it. And, perhaps they should start with the book; you know – how you did.

Rating out of five:

  • Originality: 3
  • Scare Factor: 5
  • Cuteness Factor: 0 (less than that really)
  • Identifiable: 4

What's it made of? It’s just a mask and it’s 100% latex. So, if your kid has a latex allergy, you should probably steer clear of this one!

Will you need extra bits? Yes, pretty much everything! You’ll need an all white outfit of some sort, preferably with a ruffled front and collar. Then there is the red balloon and some red pom poms for the front of the shirt. But, none of these things would work without the mask – or a wig and some serious face painting skills.

Is it hand wash only? Yes, as you would expect.

Will it break the bank? Pretty much. $50 is a stretch for most Halloween costumes and this doesn’t do more than cover the face. If you’ve got the money for it, your kid is going to love it. If not, go the face painting route or choose another costume.
