    I love the look of modern Russian clowns. I subscribe to an Instagram to one troupe that managed to combine the already hilarious look of modern hipster fashion with white make-up and hairstyles that look like they came out of the 19th century. They're definitely the most chic I've ever seen a clown look.

    This is an outstanding article which goes beyond the typical basic exposure to Popov or focuses too much on either minimalistic or grotesque makeup to include an important historical element on Russian clown and circus, discuss notable clowns and clowning influences, and highlights both the progression of circus over the last century as well as contemporary outlets of expression.

    This was also a fantastic example of a run on sentence.

    Both are well worth reading!
