Recently, Barry Carr build me my tailor made Gene Simmons Sonic Boom Costume.
It was a dream come true!

Last January I auditioned for Dutch Kiss tributeband "Kiss on the Rocks" (
Boy was I happy when they hired me as their demon!

Obviously, they wanted me to look one on one, and they told me about this "Barry Carr".
We got in touch via his friend Jerry, and this is when the adventure started.
To make a long story short, everything, and I mean really everything, came true. Barry and Jerry took time, listened to all our requests and made this a comfortable process. Yes, it’s serious $$$, but it’s worth every dime. These are the true professionals! You can imagine ordering something of the internet, having it ship across the ocean without meeting the builders, makes one a little nervous. No reason whatsoever: the costume and boots came in in perfect condition. I am so proud of my costume; it is incredible beautiful.

Barry Carr is the best!!!!!

Thank you so much Barry and Jerry

I done my research before I was going to drop any big $$$ on a set of KISS boots. I must admit after hearing and reading horror stories from other KISS costume makers I was kind of unsure about Barry. I kept reading this blog site and one day finally decided to send Barry an email. After a few short emails I was on the phone with Barry planning my order for Gene's "Love Gun" boots. Barry was very so cool and even set me up on easy payment plans.My boots were custom made for me since I didn't want the tacky looking leggins that the other KISS costume makers sell on Ebay. I told Barry I wanted everything one solid piece and attached to the boots and that exactly what I got. I first got into KISS when I was in middle school and always wanted a pair of Gene's "Love Gun" boots, Barry made my dream come true. I recently went to a concert to see a 80's tribute band called the "Hairbangers Ball" Even though my Gene costume was the official KISS licensed costume (save your $$$ for the real deal people) it still looked cool, but my boots made the costume ROCK!!! People everywhere was saying look at his boots it was awesome!!!! So awesome that the band got me on stage to sing "Dr Love" with them. With my boots made by Barry Carr I was a rockstar for one night. I must add that i'm so impressed with the feedback I got from the Band and other people that night. I'm ordering a complete Destroyer costume with boots from Barry as we speak. Thanks Barry for being the best and always kicking ass!!!
