UK FAN ROCKS AS THE DEMON FOR CHARITY!
KISSONLINE FAN LETTER
Last Friday was Comic Relief here in the UK, a great charity that helps worthwhile projects in both Africa and the UK. Myself and my team at work decided to make an effort this year dressing as IT Geeks led by... Gene Simmons! It was a 6AM start for me to get the make-up & outfit sorted along with a very strange journey to work with a lot of confused/scared pedestrians. It was well worth it though, Gene and his geeks prowled the office collecting money, selling cakes, shaving heads & waxing legs and made a massive £850 ($1300)! A brilliant effort from a brilliant team, apart from freaking most of them out by being in character all day I’m pretty sure they enjoyed working for Gene...

FASHION ICON JOHN VARVATOS AS GENE SIMMONS!
GENE SIMMONS
John Varvatos is showing some real fashion sense, by dressing up as a mysterious masked man.

John sent me these photos. And I suppose I will have to send him some of me…hopefully, not with farm animals…


And, here's how John tells it:

"Halloween, 2012. It was a 1930s themed party. I won a prize most irrelevant. That said, I had all the chicks hanging all over me. And behind the makeup. I was Gene. It was a great night."
