“Dark Carnival”: Photographer Makes a Shots of Vintage Creepy Clowns In a Cornfield

According to Tara Mapes: “If you know me, you know Halloween is my favorite time of year. Scratch the pumpkin spice and sweater weather, I just love recreating vintage horror shots.

Last year I created papier-mache masks and did some cool horror stuff (you can check out by clicking here)! I also did a shoot at an old abandoned asylum (you can check out the post by clicking here). And don’t forget the Dark Carnival that came to town earlier this year (you can find the post here)!

This year I went with CLOWNS AND CORN.

This weekend I’ll be shooting at an actual Horror House down the street, so stay tuned for the return of the DARK CARNIVAL.

Enjoy, my fellow fright freaks, enjoy!”
