This is our KISS DIY Halloween Costume. For the Demon we found the leather pants, boots, cape, and studded biker jacket at second hand stores. We cut the arms off of the biker jacket to make a vest, and repurposed one of the arm cuffs as a choker collar. We cut the bottom of the cape to look like bat wigs, attached the cape to an old pair of tights, and then glittered and studded it. The "spikes" were made from construction paper and then spray painted and hot glued to the cape. the wig was bought online, and the makeup was freehanded.

For Starchild, the jacket, leotard, boots, pants, and belt were all found at Goodwill. We spray painted the collar of the jacket, and made the stars out of glitter. We cut holes in the sides of the pants and hot glued studs to them. The choker collar was made from an old belt. The wig was borrowed from a friend, and the makeup was freehanded.

For Catman, the shirt, pants, boots, and wig were all found at goodwill. We cut the arms off of the shirt, and then glittered it. We put stripes of glitter down the sides of the pants, the choker collar was made from a belt, and the makeup was freehanded.

For spaceman, the shirt, pants, boots, and cumberbund were all found at second hand stores. We cut the cuffs off of the shirt and glittered around the neck. The lightning bolts on the pants are made from glitter. The chain choker collar was bought at Wal-mart (clearance--$1). The spaceman vest was made from cardboard, spray painted, and glittered. The wig was re-used from a past Halloween costume, and the makeup was freehanded.

Total cost for all four costumes: $100

This year I decided to dress as "Gene" and included my Son as (ACE) and my Nephew as (Paul). I made all three costumes myself, the only store bought item was Gene's boots. I saw Kiss in NYC in 1978 and then again years later with my son in 2003. So we are a KISS Army at its best.

I worked on this homemade KISS group Halloween costume idea for about 2 months, not everyday but about 5 hours a week. I think it is important to start early as you consistently will have new ideas, places to go shop at and wait for items from on-line ie. unitards, and boots, make-up.

It was so much fun going out with my son and nephew, we entered a contest and won! But just seeing all the hard work come to life was all worth it, I am actually gonna miss not working on these costumes.

Never too old to be KISS! Gene- Started with black tights and tank top. Used silver car sun shades for shoulder pads and belt with lots of hot glue. Had boot toppers from prior pirate costume. Used the same sun shade material to accent the boots. Also used lots of bright metal tape. Made wings and glues stones on for accents. The hair is real!

Paul- spandex pants and t-shirt. Glued silver starts on pants and boots. Cut the fingers out of an old pair of long black gloves and added silver fringe and a star. The silver metal tape covered the boot toe and heels. Bought the wig.

Makeup- used clown white, worked great and did not come off until we used cold cream. This Homemade Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley Couple Costume was a fun to make and we had a fun night!

I have never actually bought a Halloween Costume. Growing up my parents believed Halloween was a chance to show your creativity. This year we decided to go as Kiss. Just facepaint, and some rock and roll clothing, and you have the Homemade Female Kiss Costume!
