Halloween sales are going to reach an estimated $7 billion this year and a large percentage of that is coming from clown costumes.

“Clown mask sales are up more than [300%] from a year ago the same period online," said Brad Butler of Halloween Express. “In the top 10, eight of them are ‘evil’ clown masks this season whereas last year, five of the top 10 were ‘evil.’”
