I got this homemade Kiss family Halloween costume idea from this website and talked my four kids into being Kiss for Halloween.
I started by purchasing a plain black shirt and leggings for each kid at Target. Then I went to JoAnne Fabric and purchased 2 yards of silver shimmery fabric. I used all two yards. I also bought a bottle of Aleene's Fabric Fusion, fabric glue from JoAnne's. I looked at a lot of different costumes that Kiss has had. I searched on YouTube and the internet. I designed my own as close to the band members as possible.
I cut out the different designs for each kids and glued it onto the shirts and pants. I bought white, black and green face paint from Target. I shopped around for the rocker wigs and found the best price at Kmart.
The boys wore snow boots (even though my youngest refused to wear anything but sneakers at the last minute) and the girls wore fake Uggs from Target.
Price of One costume:
Shirt and pants at Target- $12 Make- Up: $1 Wig from Kmart- $6 Silver Fabric- $4 Total per costume- $23 plus boots Total for 4 kids- $100
I know I could have bought a costume for about the same price but this is so original and got so many comments. Everyone loved it.

This is a Homemade Gene Simmons Halloween Costume. The armor is made from a Goodwill set of football shoulder pads and some old plastic buckets. The codpiece and bat wings were made from vinyl and ripstop nylon, respectively, and the codpiece is studded with quilter's thumbtacks. The leg scales are stiff felt and hot glue sewed to the cutoff legs from an old pair of jeans, and the monster boots are just a pair of Goodwill platform boots with dragon head shells made from old milk jugs and papier mache.
All of this over a black long sleeve t-shirt and a pair of his Mom's black tights. Add a studded choker from the Halloween store, a cheap black "Rocker" wig styled into the traditional Simmons topknot, and an excellent makeup job by his Mom, and that's all she wrote.
He won first prize in the ages 8-12 costume contest in downtown Statesboro this Halloween, and has declared this the "best Halloween ever". And that's what it's all about.

Homemade Kiss Group Halloween Costume
Love the rock band KISS, wanted our costumes this year to be over the top and I think we did it. It took a lot of time and effort by definitely worth it.
We all worked as a team on this Homemade Kiss Group Halloween Costume, each had a different task. The most challenging was the boots. We needed to be very creative, that’s where my husband took over. He took a trip to Home Depot were he found insulation that was in the crap bin, traced the bottom of the boot cut out to the shape of the boot, wrapped in duct tape and attached with rodent trap glue.
What really brought everything together was the makeup. My 13 year old daughter drew our faces free hand, she is amazing. It took 2 ½ hours to fully complete each of us.
We were such a hit; people would not stop taking our picture.
I have a thing with sticking my tongue out in pictures - I'm famous for it amongst my group!! So when deciding on a Halloween costume this year, with Kiss coming back and Gene Simmons Family Jewels show, which I love.. I thought this homemade Demon Kiss Halloween costume would be perfect for me!!
