The amazing clown resources thread.

    Actually, that costumer is fairly, inexpensive, compared to others.

    Of course, one doesn't necessarily have to purchase their items from the "clown shops." One of the best tidbits I garnered early on in clowning came when I asked a clown where she got her costume pants. She explained that they were from a men's shop, which sold colorful clothing. (I understand that -48- would guard the entrance to the dressing room as she tried stuff on!)

    Others have related interesting stories about where they purchased hats, vests, shoes..... everything from second hand or thrift shops, clowns emptying their closets, just normal shoe or clothing shops (I had a couple of great finds, myself, - ON SALE - just this past weekend while out Christmas shopping downtown.) People often ask me where I obtained my plaid jacket, and usually assume it was custom made by a clown costumer..... to which I proudly reply, "Four dollars and fifty cents at thrift!"

    I've received two bits of encouraging news about The Annual Clowns Directory, www.annualclownsdirectory.com, this afternoon and thought both of them worthy of a mention :)

    1/ Ahh, you're the man behind the clowns directory, I didn't realise ! Excellent work, one of my friends used this last year when she was looking for a childrens entertainer and posted a link on facebook to it. The things you learn through Facebook.

    The other one was as follows:

    2/ The site is very good, maybe needs bringing into the current design trends for big flashy graphics but you are hitting number one on google for clowns directory which is a heck of an accomplishment so I'm surprised people have said they don't get many enquiries through it ?

    I am very pleased to report my Webmaster is currently working on improving, behind the scenes, at the moment :)

    If you ever need something quick and easy. I always fall back to good old Amazon which gets some stock from suppliers like Clown Antics. I ordered my first professional grade nose (more of a shameless impulse buy, but I knew my foam piece wouldn't last!) Other materials I just got in were my twist balloons and juggling kit.

    It's not the most idea since it's not coming directly from a supplier. But if you are in a fix, you can practically find anything you need on Amazon.

    Dear Donuts,

    Although we appreciate being informed of this company, it is really up to the company to register on The Annual Clowns Directory website: www.annualclownsdirectory.com we trust you will appreciate this as it is at the moment the only requirement necessary.

    I was asking for his business to be added to the the clown resource thread as under the Face Painting tab www.RUBYREDPAINT.com was missing. I thought as a resource guide we shouldn't be favoring one brand ex, Snazaroo.com. Ruby Red is an American owned and operated buisness. As An American I wanna Buy American Made. Some of the other links don't even advance clowning other than to sell products. RubyRed and Gary Cole offer free classes to groups and have a wealth of info on there site about Facepainting. I'm not here to argue with anyone but if the thread by Pobo the Hobo was only for buisnesses to list there need to be on a thread it should be stated that way not saying if i missed anyone let me know. No where did I ask for his name to be added to a directory just an add to the forum thread as a valuable tool add. This is a forum to talk about clowning is it not? I hope i don't come off as a crab but thats just me voicing my 2 cents. Why chastise when I just asked to have an addition added to the thread. If its not ok just dont add the name just saying as a new member of the forum i was just trying to help.

    Please accept my sincere apologiy but I thought you were asking for the above company to be added to the website of The Annual Clowns Directory, which is something niether I or any of my team will do without either a Clown or Company requesting by completing a simple application form on said website, again I sincerely apologiy for any misunderstanding my previous statement may have caused.
