Ummm... I'm having trouble with this.
Self expression --- yes. Self reliance --- yes... But Clowns?
Ha! Carnies travel by caravan, and you bet there were performers on the silk road.
Last year my outfit/costume theme was "peacock", so nothing to do with the overall theme, but I like having a unifying idea in mind to help chose what to buy/make. This year, I feel like the theme lends itself particularly to costuming, however, I couldn't help thinking...
So I wanted to come up with an idea (or several) that wouldn't make me cringe. Thus, circuspunk.
unjohn- I love your take on the theme, too.
