It: Chapter Two - what we're in for

When the Losers Club learns of the recent death of a young man in Derry, they realise that the evil entity known as It has awakened once again. The movie trailer reveals a frightening encounter between the creature and a grown-up Beverly Marsh, played by Jessica Chastain. Beverly returns to her childhood home to find that an elderly woman named Mrs. Kersh (Joan Gregson) has taken up residence. She soon discovers the apparently sweet senior is an evil incarnation of It. When it comes to horrifying monsters, however, nothing beats the Pennywise form of It for sheer terror. In It: Chapter Two, Bill Denbrough (James McAvoy), Richie Tozier (Bill Hader), and the rest of the Losers Club must find a way to defeat the evil clown once and for all.

Pennywise costumes

Pennywise costumes

First introduced in Stephen King's original horror story It in 1986, Pennywise has long been a scary costume choice for Halloween events and parties. This year's release of It: Chapter Two promises to take the popularity of Pennywise costumes to a new level. Options range from full-body jumpsuits with half-masks to shirt, collar, and mask combinations. A Pennywise mask makes it easy to portray the evil clown depicted in the 2017 and 2019 movies. With its moulded orange hair, painted-face makeup, and a signature creased forehead, the officially licensed It mask brings Pennywise to life! Wear It if you dare!
