The disheveled hair that looks like that of a mad scientist. And those guys are supposed to make us feel happy? No way, José. That all sounds like the combination for hideous nightmares! Of course, when choosing a perfect Halloween costume to scare the pants out of friends and family, isn’t that exactly what you want?We’ve been dabbling in the art of perfecting scary costumes for kids, and nothing compares to the horror of this Nightmare Clown costume for kids.
