I said in my Friday Fill-ins that I was planning on dressing up for Halloween and attending a costume party on Friday night. Me and 3 other crazy friends, decided to go as KISS. Now we are all 40-ish, and grew up in the 70's, but do you think any of us even knew any songs they did? Well we did actually know some, just didn't know they did it.
We started getting ready about 6:00 p.m. with drinks, of course. Most of the clothes we just threw together, lots of black, bling, some actual chains (bought at Everitt Moore). We put knee socks over our boots to try and make them look like the platform boots they wore. Me and 1 other girl have shoulder length hair, so we sprayed and ratted and sprayed again, and then dyed with black. The other 2 girls wore black wigs. Then came the face paint. We each picked out who we were, drew the outline with black eyeliner, and then filled with either black or white face paint. We looked awesome.
For the grand entrance, we waited until 9:00 to show up, and had someone get everyone's attention, and yell KISS IS IN THE BUILDING!
It was alot of fun, there were alot of other costumes, some good ones, but when the time came they announced 3rd, 2nd, and then 1st place, which we won. I think we won $100 credit at the bar, so we each have $25. I then started thinking about getting home, I car pooled, and getting in the shower and hoping all the hair paint and face paint came off, before I could go to bed. Thank God it did!
