Thanks to George Xirocostas for sending in the photos!

Just dropping in and sending you a few pics of me and my family. We dress as KISS every year for Halloween. I have dressed as Gene for the past 6 years. My wife and kids decided to join in and have some fun 3 years ago. Ever since then, we have had just loads of fun with this!We have entered costume contests, been interviewed by our local newspapers, took thousands of pictures with rabid KISS's just been a blast!

Needless to say....there is yet another generation of KISS fans living in my household now. My daughter and son have told me that they do not wish to be anything or anyone else for Halloween, but KISS. My son is so much into the Catman persona that he has enlightened me that he wishes to take drum lessons and become a drummer and my daughter has been taking guitar lessons for a year. So far they seem to progressing fairly well. I do believe they will both become musicians as it seems natural to them.

I have to say...KISS has wide-spread effects on not only big kids (adults), but small kids as well. What started out as simply me paying tribute to THE HOTTEST BAND IN THE WORLD - KISS ... has blossomed into a family tradition for us!

I was in Venice, Italy, in September and just for the kick of it, I put on the star make up and walked the streets of Venice. Putting on KISS make up guarantees people will look at you!

KISS fans have more fun, no doubt about it.

On Saturday September 8th, I attended an event called Duckapalooza Music Festival. It was held in Elgin Illinois and was sponsored by The Boys and Girls Club. The Boys and Girls Club offers programs and services that are designed to enhance the children's sense of competence, usefulness, and belonging. The event sponsored a Battle of the Bands as well as performances by four other bands including DROP, Blah Blah Blah and The Smithereens. There were several events and many prizes that were being donated by local banks, car dealerships and businesses.

There was one prize that I had set my sites on. It was a brand new Washburn Paul Stanley PS 600 model guitar. I had been told that there was going to be a raffle and being a huge KISS fan that has dedicated an entire room of my house to display my collection which includes 5 other KISS guitars, a pinball machine, gold record awards and much much more I knew it had to be mine. I later found out that the guitar was to be given away to a KISS fan that could answer a trivia question based on the band. I knew right away that this was my lucky day.

When the event coordinator brought the guitar out on stage, I made sure to be right up in front. He said that it was only appropriate for a KISS fan to win a KISS guitar and with this my heart started pumping. The rules were simple. The first person to shout out the correct answer wins the guitar. When the question was asked, I shouted out loud, (no pun intended) 'PSYCHO CIRCUS' and the guitar was handed to me.

I was told that I had turned white from the excitement and I had to sit down to take it all in. I have never won anything in my 41 years on this earth and it was more than overwhelming for me to actually have won something that I wanted so badly. I have included a photo of myself holding the guitar just minutes after it was won. It is now one of my most prized guitars in my collection (I have also included a photo of the rest of the collection) It is a beautiful guitar and I thought it fitting to share this story with KISS Online.

Best, KISS Krazyjth

Hey guys,

I recently had the chance to watch the Kissology Vol. 1 and I really enjoyed seeing the Cadillac, MI video. I am a Cadillac native and was one of the kids who had the chance to meet you during the sound check in the school gym. I was only 4 years old at the time, but I remember it as if it were yesterday. I had my face painted like Gene, and I remember being pretty scared when I met you. Anyway, it was so great to see the footage of that October in 1975. I eventually played football at Cadillac, and we sure could have used a 'KISS defense' in the late 80's. We ended up 0-9 my senior year.

I just wanted to say 'Hello' and thanks for the memories back in 1975. Cadillac has not changed the lock yet, and would love to have you back for a visit. Keep on Rockin'!
