IT movie costumes and props on display...

In this year's movie adaptation of Stephen King's 1986 fantasy horror novel, IT, Bill Skarsgård plays the malevolent entity 'Pennywise' that takes the shape of a harlequin clown to torment the folks of the small Maine town of Derry. In the summer of 1989 a group of kid misfits, 'The Losers Club', band together to find out what's behind all the sinister disappearances of children in their town and confront some of their own personal demons in the process.

Janie Bryant was Costume Designer on the horror movie, responsible for giving 'Pennywise' an updated and terrifying clown look and make it distinct from Tim Curry's TV version in the 1990 mini-series (designed by Monique Prudhomme).

Bill Skarsgård certainly looks the part in this vintage style costume which mixes elements of Medieval, Renaissance, Elizabethan and Victorian era for the long-lived supernatural creature from a different time.

The outfit is mainly a dusky grey with orange pompons, the trim around the cuff and ankles are a ball fringe in orange, red and cinnamon, a 16th century-like neck ruff, puffy shoulders and bloomers, and tight white gloves like porcelain, giving the ensemble a weather-worn and ancient look.

The Losers Club is made up of pre-teen outcasts who have been bullied or abused in their town, by school kids, neighbours or their own family for being different. 'Bill Denrough' is the older brother of missing child 'Georgie Denrough' who went missing playing with his paper boat in the rain.

Screen-used props from the IT movie
This selection of screen-used props include Georgie's paper boat, a missing person poster and more cool items featured in the film.

I personally can't wait to see this incarnation of IT in action, and fans of scary movies can also check out all these horror-themed costumes and props.
