For my senior year of high school there was a dress up day for homecoming I don't know if your school did anything like this, but they gave out prizes for the best costumes and such. I decided that my friends and I
needed to win this so I came up with the idea that we dress up as KISS.
I decided to be Gene Simmons, because, of all my friends, I had the longest tongue. Anyway, we made our costumes the night before and figured they would turn out crumby, but when we put the makeup and hair on, it was AMAZING!
Needless to say, we won the costume contest, but I couldn't retire my Gene Simmons costume. So I wore it again for Halloween the next year.
This costume is basically a swimsuit painted silver, a couple pair of black tights, a a black longsleeved shirt, a garbage bag cape, lots of duct tape, a couple plastic bowls covered in aluminum foil for the shoulder pads, black and white face paint, black hair spray, some huge platforms (which fate had me find at Good Will) and a patch of chest hair (black faux fur)
It is by far one of the best costumes I've ever made!
I'll try and put up a full body shot soon.
