It’s time for some clock stretches with Loonette the Clown

The costume designer in charge of Loonette the Clown’s one of a kind look was Jane Edmondson. She dressed Loonette in fun colors and prints making her a great character for you to recreate.

You’ll need:

  • A red overall shorts jumper with black and white striped tall socks or tights and a white shirt underneath that has yellow rubber ducks on it.
  • You can buy duck appliques and attach them to the shirt instead of searching everywhere for a shirt with the ducks printed on it if you choose.
  • Next, you’ll need a pair of simple, black Mary Jane shoes.
  • For the final touches add a short dark brown curly wig and style it in pigtails.
  • Find a purple beanie cap with two holes in it or cut your own holes for the pigtails to be pulled through.
  • A red clown nose followed by some painted on freckles to your cheeks and you’re done.
  • Grab your favorite dolly and you’ve completed your Loonette the Clown costume.
