View Full Version : Old time Carnival Characters?

So I have a birthday party coming up, and it's a fancy dress affair with the theme, "Carnival".

Which seems great but after the first couple characters of Strong Man, Lion & Lion Tamer, Jester, Bearded Lady and Juggler, there doesn't seem to be any more.

These are the only ones I can think of and they're all either taken or not what I'm looking for. So my question to you, dear Pit, is what other characters are there along the lines of Old Time Carnival such as the Strong Man and Bearded Lady?

Strong Man:

Bearded Lady:

What obvious and clichéd characters am I missing that would make for an awesome costume??

:confused:

Cheers for any suggestions! :cheers:

If he was 6, he would of been born in 2004. But he registered here in 2002 which means you fail at basic math.

Get a friend and you can both go as the Strong MEN. Talk to everyone with a strong British accent.

Midgets!! I knew there was good clichéd characters I was missing, thank You!

Already had this idea as a dirty 'Carny' but looking for something a bit more obvious as opposed to, "hey, why'd you come a bit unwashed?"

Thanks though!

Great idea but afraid the Strong man thing is taken so need to come up with something equally as awesome!
