When I was in 7th grade, I wanted to be Ace Frehley from KISS for Halloween, but I wasn't lucky enough to get the costume pictured below.  My mom made me one from scratch.  She got the makeup somewhat close, but I ended up wearing a short Beatles length wig, a polyester shirt with gems of the world pictured on it, and a big cape with a misspelled "Ace Freley" on the back.  My "guitar" was made out of a piece of cardboard, which became all limp and floppy after a couple of hours at school.  I didn't get my ass kicked, but I probably deserved to.

Ringo Starr, Yellow Submaring, Ace Frehley, Gene Simmons, and Paul Stanley (they did make a Peter Chriss, but it's not pictured here)

Davy Jones and Mickey Dolenz from The Monkees, and a Blue Meanie outfit!  How cool would it have been to be Mike Nesmith for Halloween?
