Pierrot Costume

Amongst the costumes I also found two Pierrot costume, not as old as the others but still a great find.

I could not help my self as soon as I found then I slipped them on over my clothes and walked around with it one for over an hour. Yes it is huge on me but I love it..

Vintage Costumes.

I've been going throughout the Costume store at work, and hidden at the back on a top rail out of sight I found a lode of clown costumes. I could not resist, I had to take some photos.
(The company I work for was set up 35 year ago -roughly Give or take two or three years.- and we think these could have been some of their first costumes)
