Rubie’s Costume Co. Signs on for KISS Costumes

KISS and Rubie’s Costume Company have announced a worldwide licensing deal to re-create the iconic style of the blazing band that is always “Dressed to Kill.” KISS costumes, masks, wigs, and accessories for adults and children will ensure that the notorious Starchild, Demon, Spaceman, and Catman slay the scariest night of the year.

Legendary KISS is famous for its explosive live performances and outrageous rock and roll style. In a career spanning nearly four decades, the band has achieved record-breaking tours, album sales in excess of 100 million, a huge “KISS Army” fan base, and the most memorable look in all of rock history.

“I’ve always said you may not be able to look like KISS, but you can always feel like KISS. We’ve finally changed that, and I’m jazzed to see all the Starchilds and other KISS members in full uniform this year!” says Paul Stanley of KISS.

“With your new KISS costumes, you will release the Demon within you. You are the God of Thunder!” says Gene Simmons of KISS.

“This line of KISS costumes and accessories offers something for the rock star in all of us,” says Howard Beige, EVP of Rubie’s. “The catalog will cover a variety of price points and include complete KISS costuming for fans of all ages. It’s a great collection of must-have gear.”

Retailers can preview KISS costumes and accessories at www.Rubies.com. Orders will be accepted this summer. Merchandise will be available at retail and at  www.KISSonline.com in time for Halloween.

Live Nation Merchandise, KISS’ exclusive worldwide merchandise and licensing agent, brokered the deal.
