I've never been a clown; but I also think that "creepy clowns" and the modern trend of pretending to be scared of clowns for laughs is tired and stale.Being one of the few VV1 members who's actually been a clown (as a kid), I don't fear them, and I'm very judgemental about them. A clown snob, let's say.
I was okay with mascots, though I knew it was someone in a suit, I saw it as someone RP'ing a big plushie. But I *still* don't like clowns much.I didn't like clowns at all as a little kid....and I didn't like people wearing the big animal costumes either, like mascots or characters at theme parks or whatnot. But it's not because I was scared of them or found them creepy. Partly it's because I was kind of arrogant and considered myself too mature for "kid stuff" like them, even when I was little, lol. But mostly....it's a little hard to articulate; I just inherently distrusted people who disguised themselves, especially their faces, in that way. I dunno why.
I don't feel that way today, FWIW.
My reaction to clowns was always more or less, “Oh please. Go away”. * And I never liked circuses either. When I was, uhhh, I dunno, maybe 6? We went to a circus and I started crying because they were being mean to the animals and making them do tricks that I could feel they didn’t wanna do.I'm afraid when I was a kid I just thought clowns were boring and I guess I still do.
