Pennywise Costume Guide: How to dress like Pennywise for Halloween and Cosplay

About Pennywise

Pennywise is the ill-famed character in “It” – a horror novel by Stephen King. Pennywise is popularly known as the Dancing Clown. The clown persona of Pennywise is just a disguise that he uses to attract and devour little kids. Killing adults is also not an issue for him. However, he limits his victims to just kids because their fears are easier and simpler to visualize.

Pennywise lives in the little town of Derry, and he came in like an asteroid in prehistoric times. He goes to sleep for a very long time and wakes up about every thirty years. When he wakes up, it would stay awake for a period of two years devouring children. He even enjoys scaring and terrorizing children before devouring them, as their fear makes them more delicious.

According to the storyline, Pennywise was in existence before the creation of the universe, and he existed in a dimension known as “Macroverse.” An orange light is his real form. They also refer to it as “Dead Lights,” because anyone that sees it dies instantly.

People are not even aware that he exists in the town, and this makes it impossible to report a crime that he commits. He eventually gets away with all the crimes he commits. However, a group of friends, who had an encounter with him when they were small, came back to the town 30 years later to stand up to him.
