Personally, I've been a horror nerd ever since I accidentally saw the movie Alien as a 10-year-old — my parents put in a VHS, sent me to my room, and then promptly fell asleep on the couch. It was a golden opportunity to stay up past my bedtime, and catch some nightmares, too. It probably comes as no surprise that I also became a huge Stephen King fan in high school. If you too are a new parent with the spirit of Halloween in your bones, you might consider finding some It costumes for babies. Some are budget, and some will cost you an arm and... well, an arm. But guys, it's worth it to really creep people out.
Pennywise the Clown first terrified readers when Stephen King's fantastic book hit stores in 1986. In 1990, an IT miniseries, starring Tim Curry as a gruesome Pennywise, became a cult classic. This year, fans returned to Derry, Maine for more chills orchestrated by director Andy Muschietti.
Whatever version floats your red balloon, there's a costume variant for your baby. And if anyone asks why you decided to dress your baby up as tiny, razor-toothed clown, remember to roll your eyes crazily and shout, "We all float down here!"
