I want to thank you for making me thee most kick-ass rockin Gene Simmons costume ever!!! The authenticity and resemblance was impeccable. Rock the Nation costume is by far the best Gene ever wore. I was at a huge Halloween Bash lastnight in Downtown Chicago and when I got out of my car I had a swarm of people wanting to take a picture with me. I've must of taking over 100 pictures lastnight. There were some cool costumes but everyone said I had the Golden Trophy costume. I've had some cool looking Gene costumes but this topped them all. Barry's creativity and skills produced the paramount of replica costumes.
If You Want The Best then You Got The Best - Barry Carr.
Thanks again Barry for all your hard work and dedication.
Searched all over trying to find kiss costumes,without any luck. I found some that just wasn't good enough. I ended up making my own costumes ....than I found (Barry Carr) a year and a half later....his work that I seen was awesome. so I got in touch with him on myspace and weeks later my boy and myself got a couple of awesome costumes.just in time for Halloween....the pics are better than a 1000 words....my boys love gun outfit got him tons of attention Halloween night and the same goes for myself.plenty of people wanting pics all night long .it was very cool....I'm a very satisfied customer....I highly recommend (Barry Carr) for your kiss costume needs....thanks again Barry for being on top of your game..........peace..........
Barry, I really appreciate all that you did to help me with my KISS costume. My daughter and I had a great night at our city sponsored Halloween festival. You were the only person that helped me keep my sanity when other people couldn't deliver. I'm not going to take up space criticizing all the others out there. Suffice to say that you mean what you say, and say what you mean. My costume was custom made in every aspect and it fits and displays like a museum piece. You and your team are devoted to detail, construction and quality. This costume will probably be around long after I'm gone. I wish I had found you years ago. Thanks for making me a costume that I'm proud to wear and tell people about. I had so much fun watching the expressions on people's faces as I passed by them. I quit counting people asking me for a photo after the first hundred or so. I accommodated everyone's request and won first place in the massive Halloween contest here in Hollywood.
We will definitely work together again. I see a lot of costumes and props in my line of work and you are as good, if not better than the people I work with. I tip my hat to you. With sincere thanks, Marc Macaulay.

My husband is an avid KISS collector. The one thing he wanted for his collection was a pair of replica Gene Simmons boots. He researched for months online and continued to say how he thought Barry was the best in the business. Well, for his birthday this year, as a surprise, I ordered a Gene Simmons Destroyer costume because I figured it just wouldn’t be KISS if it wasn’t the whole costume. I decided to work with Barry and emailed him for the information. Barry has been so professional and easy to work with through the whole process. When I received the costume I had to check it out - I was blown away by the craftsmanship Barry puts into his work! Truly amazing the pictures on his web site were great but actually seeing the costume in person up close it was unbelievable. When my husband finally opened his gift he was blown away. He kept saying “This is so incredible, this is truly a work of Art”, and it is museum quality work. It’s
obvious that Barry loves what he does and it shows in his work. Do not waste your time or money going anywhere else! This is the only place you will find an EXACT replica of the KISS costumes made with high quality materials and superb craftsmanship.
Thanks again Barry!!!!

Barry Carr has proven to me that he is an artist and a man of his word. Something in short supply when I had to deal with MOTOR COWBOY to get the black basic boots for my Destroyer costume.
Here's my story. My name is Marc Macaulay. I have made my living as a professional actor for over 25 years. I have worked in over 60 films and 50 TV shows. I have seen some of the best costumes, makeup and special effects in the entertainment business. Barry's work is right up there with the greats in my industry. I personally had a nightmare with MOTOR COWBOY and the owners, Jim and Gary Evans. After MOTOR COWBOY had two attempts at making me a pair of basic black platform boots that would later be covered in scales and dragon heads I sent Barry what I had been left with and asked him to try to salvage a costume for me.
This year I decided to treat myself to a great Halloween costume and thought a Kiss, Gene Simmons look would be fun. I wish I had let Barry do everything but I thought from looking at the Internet that I needed MOTOR COWBOY start the process. Wrong!!! Barry took the ill fitting and cheaply made boots and made them into a true custom fit. Not only are my boots great looking but they fit like a glove. A good foundation is what was needed with these boots. Unfortunately the Evan's brothers couldn't provide that. I spent good money after bad and knew it was wrong when I did it. I wouldn't let these guys "make" dinner reservations for me. Barry took them, reworked them and made them into something that should sit in a glass display case in a museum. My armor is coming soon and all I can say is thank you Barry Carr. You mean what you say, and say what you mean. Sincere thanks, Marc Macaulay
