There are few things in this world that scare us more than seeing Bill Skarsgård transform into Pennywise for the new film It. But, while some people went to see the new iteration of the classic Stephen King novel just to judge it against the 1990 film, we went for a completely different reason: the Halloween beauty inspiration.
With the big night only a month away, we’re eager to lock down a killer costume ASAP, and let’s face it: Pennywise is this year’s Harley Quinn. There’s something so creepy about the red-stained grin and fiery hair that makes it the perfect costume. But how can you stand out amongst a sea of clowns? Luckily, a handful of horror film fans are showing off their It looks on Instagram — and the results are almost as terrifying as the actual movie. Even better, each one is unique from the next.

As if staying in the lines isn’t hard enough, one Instagram artist pulled off the detailed portrait of Pennywise on her mouth. Her hero product of choice: Kat Von D’s Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Witches, of course.
Another artist felt inspired by the iconic red balloon known to float around its future victims in the town of Derry, Maine.
