One of the more surprising aspects to the Gathering of the Juggalos was how few people there painted their faces. Clown make-up was sold on site, but one ICP fan told me that only about 20 percent of Juggalos actually paint these days, and that's a fairly accurate reflection of what I saw, though the sweltering 95-degree weather may've been a factor. But even with the heat and humidity, ICP's members Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope always appeared in paint (except for the time Shaggy was spotted plain-faced on a golf cart), as was ICP protégé Blaze. My photographer and I spotted Blaze in the merch tent--that photo is above, 24 other human cartoons are below.
