My two daughters and son along with myself completed the rock band KISS for Halloween 2013. We are huge rock-n-roll fans and I have wanted to make these costumes for years. To start off, I visited thrift stores to try to find the right boots. The craft store became my new best friend as I needed plenty of silver accessories for the costumes. I ordered metal studs online and lined my sons jacket and my Gene Simmons costumes. This was a bit time consuming, but worth the effort. I used vinyl for Gene's costume and inexpensive silver material for the other costumes. I also purchased some black stretchy material for the pants. I cut stars out of glitter glue paper for Paul Stanley's costume. I didn't have a pattern for any of it, but I did use pictures from the internet to free hand the bat wings and the codpiece for Gene's costume. The wigs were ordered. I just used as much creativity I could to try and achieve the look we were going for. I wanted to practice putting on the makeup a few times before Halloween, but timing didn't allow it so this was our first attempt at it! I hope you enjoy our costumes as much as we enjoyed wearing them and getting lots of double looks and compliments. We love HALLOWEEN!
