Everyone Loves A Scary Mid-Century Clown

Boo! Are you terrified yet??? This post originally ran in August of 2010, but it is just too horrifying not to run it again.

Good Lord!!!! I found the World’s Scariest Clown Doll in the whole world! Don’t believe me, huh?? Well check this out!

Reeeee! Reeeeeeee!! Reeeeeee!


Check out the extra-long neck, perfect for wrapping around your poor child’s neck to choke them while they are sleeping. And if that isn’t scary enough, the darn thing actually has eyelashes. Orange eyelashes!!! What. Were. They. Thinking. "Wow, this would be the perfect clown, if only he had some orange eyelashes. Just one more…there. Completely terrifying!"

*Eye roll* Good grief.

The menacing shadow in the photograph is great as well. Is that really necessary. Is it???

Any volunteers to make this sucker???? I would love to see it in all it’s awful glory.

    That would be a great segment to complement the Mid-Century Menu posts – Creepy Vintage Crafts! I volunteer!
