Coolest Gene Simmons Child Costume

Costume was designed around my 8 year old daughter’s long tongue. I knew she would be a great Gene Simmons. Making the costume took some time and thought. I used thin cardboard cut out in a scalloped design over and over and glued and stapled them all together and painted silver to make the scales on the shins. I used staples and Velcro straps to hold them around her leg. The cape was a dracula cape that was trimmed and painted black to make the bat wings and I pinned it to the wrists.

The hair was sprayed with black hair coloring and pulled up with the fountain on top. The belt was a womans fashion belt I found at a thrift store. The arm bands and chest cover were a ninja costume that I modified and painted silver. The spikes were rubber spike collars I bought and cut and velcro’d together and put on the wrists and on the shoulders. The boots were sneakers that I wrapped in duct tape and drew the snake face on with a permanent marker. Put on a black pair of pants and shirt under the costume. The face was all me. I used black and white stage make up. I used a black eyeliner pencil to outline the shapes and around the eyes and mouth. after applying the white I dabbed with baby powder to set it. Paint the finger nails black and you are done!

She was a hit in this Homemade Gene Simmons Child Costume at school and out and about for Halloween.
