Everybody has a different memory of the circus. Some might remember the performing geese and roosters from Barnum and Bailey's Greatest Show on Earth, some might remember the silly clowns and some might remember the glittery and shiny costumes of the acrobats.
Costumes are a great part of the whole circus performance. They grab the attention of the audiences right from the start of the opening act! Sometimes you will find your self staring at the twinkling sparkles and imagine yourself in another magical world. Many times you would just start giggling and probably snorting at the absurd costumes some of the crazy clowns are wearing.
These costumes have been shimmery and colorful since decades ago. Can’t remember what the circus was like a couple of decades ago? Check out some of these photos of circus performers and their costumes from the 40’s and 50’s.
