The results were quite interesting, to say the least!
When It released in 2017, all of us were terrified yet fascinated by Pennywise, the dancing clown. For those who have watched the movie or read the books, you must know that Pennywise is not actually a clown, but a sentient evil who has made Derry, Maine his primary hunting grounds. With the release of the movies, Pennywise as a character received worldwide accolades.
The actor who played Pennywise, Bill Skarsgard, said that the makeup up process was a long and arduous one and when he first saw himself in the makeup, a small chill ran down his spine. Brandi Fernandez went viral for recreating that very look. Back in 2018, Fernandez, who runs a YouTube channel named Brandi TV, did a makeup tutorial of Pennywise after consuming edibles, reported Daily Mail.
In one of her makeup tutorials, Fernandez decided to eat a weed brownie she baked before attempting to recreate Pennywise's signature look. She started the tutorial admitting she doesn't know how much homemade "special" brownie she should eat. In the video, she can be heard asking, "What if it doesn’t work? Then I will be so mad because I wasted a lot of you-know-what."
After an hour, she realized she might have consumed more than she should've. Before erupting into a fit of giggles and laughs, she said, "Half of that would’ve been just fine." Starting the makeup tutorial, Fernandez uses a plastic bag as a makeshift bald cap for Pennywise's head. Then, she slathered latex on her forehead before placing the plastic sack on top of her head.
Evidently, the brownies worked its magic and Fernandez continued doing her work between fits of laughs and giggles. Next, she moved on to apply a glue stick on her eyebrows and said, "'How is this supposed to disappear? They’re becoming more irrelevant. Wait, no, they’re becoming more relevant. I’ll tell you what, I don’t feel sexy right now." While applying her foundation, Brandi becomes a bit creative and uses a kitchen sponge. Yes! A kitchen sponge.
If you are thinking this can't get any more ridiculous, then hold on. To complete the signature look, Fernandez uses an orange Scooby-Doo wig since it was all she had in hand and it looks HILARIOUS. She then uses red face paint and does her lips. After she was done doing her lips and nose, it was time to do the eyebrows and by then, even we were laughing with her. After finishing her tutorial, Fernandez says, "I could be Pennywise's little sister!"
After adding fake teeth, the Pennywise costume was finally complete and it was a sight to behold. Since she posted the video, it has been viewed over five million times and people left some absolutely hilarious comments. One person wrote, "Imagine if someone broke in and they opened the door and they walked in and she looked like that." A second one added, "idc how old this video is or how many times i’ve watched it, i laugh my ass off every time." A third one quipped, "I was laughing so loud my parents looked at me like I was drunk smoking my own tears. The whole neighborhood heard me."
