Coulrophobia is an abnormal or exaggerated fear of clowns

I once read a tale in which the main character was forced into being a circus clown via some dark and inconceivable circumstances. Now this protagonist would undergo a sinister transformation in personality each time his applied his white face paint.

I was immediately inspired.

As I plastered on the white……

…..I recognised myself less and less until,

I lost myself.

Smoking Kills: I don’t actually smoke!

A happy clown face would never sit right on my mug! So I went down the mime, Pierrot with a touch of The Crow route.

Painting my face completely white made highlighted every scar, open pore, blemish. It had a curious way of distorting some features and emphasising others.

If I am to be completely honest, this was a disturbing feeling.

I used Snazaroo Clown White bought from ebay and ELF cream liner in Black.
