Best Laughing Jack Costume Guide
Laughing Jack is a character from the internet based Creepypasta of the same name. He has mixed origins as both a clown type of character and also a supernatural being, and his victims are almost always children. To say the least, Laughing Jack is a nasty piece of work who preys on children by first making their parents think he is merely an imaginary friend. His methods of killing his victims often involve disemboweling and replacing their insides with candy.
He is typified as a kind of gothic jester, with long hair, black and white clothing and a swirly cone-shaped nose. If you want to transform yourself into this frightening child-killer from your nightmares, you’ll need a Laughing Jack Mask, Black Suspenders, Striped Black and White Shirt, Black Shoes, Faux Fur Collar, Pinstripe Pants, Striped Socks, White Bandages, Werewolf Claws and a Black Turtleneck (Cut-off Bottom).

About Laughing Jack
Laughing Jack first hit the internet Creepypasta scene in 2017 when his story was posted online and quickly found its way being shared throughout the internet. His story is a ghoulish one – this freaky jester type character with long black hair, fur coat, bandaged arms, and soulless black eyes targets vulnerable children. In his original story, he reveals himself as a friendly character to a young boy, James. His mother thinks James has an imaginary friend, but things turn nasty when their family dog is disemboweled with candy replacing his insides. The same candy James was found eating earlier.
The story ends with James being nailed to a wall, also sliced open in horrific fashion, and his mother is convicted of his murder, with Laughing Jack getting away with the crime. Like most Creepypasta characters, his image has shown up all over the internet in videos, different stories, and even games.
