Rock`n`Roll Circus - Kiss - Hako Style - by Homespun Magixx

Hako are those paper figures that are very "squared". I`m not a fan of this kind of model, but I am fan of Kiss, so, there are:

Hako são aqueles bonecos de papel super quadrados. Eu não sou fã desse tipo de paper model, mas gosto muito do som do Kiss, então, aqui estão eles:

Kiss is an American rock band formed in New York City in January 1973. Easily identified by its members' face paint and flamboyant stage outfits, the group rose to prominence in the mid to late 1970s on the basis of their elaborate live performances, which featured fire breathing, blood spitting, smoking guitars, shooting rockets, levitating drum kits and pyrotechnics. Kiss has been awarded 24 gold albums to date, the most of any American rock band. The band has sold more than 40 million albums in the United States, of which 19 million have been certified by the RIAA, and their worldwide sales exceeds 100 million albums.The 1973–'80 lineup of Paul Stanley (vocals and rhythm guitar), Gene Simmons (vocals and bass guitar), Ace Frehley (lead guitar and vocals), and Peter Criss (drums, percussion and vocals) is the most successful and identifiable. With their makeup and costumes, they took on the personas of comic book-style characters: Starchild (Stanley), The Demon (Simmons), Spaceman or Space Ace (Frehley), and Catman (Criss). The band explains that the fans were the ones who ultimately chose their makeup designs. Paul Stanley became the "Starchild" because of his tendency to be referred to as the "starry-eyed lover" and "hopeless romantic." The "Demon" makeup reflected Simmons's cynicism and dark sense of humor, as well as his affection for comic books. Ace Frehley's "Spaceman" makeup was a reflection of his fondness for science fiction and supposedly being from another planet. Peter Criss' "Catman" makeup was in accordance with the belief that Criss had nine lives because of his rough childhood in Brooklyn. Because of creative differences, both Criss and Frehley were out of the group by 1982. The band's commercial fortunes had also waned considerably by that point. Buoyed by a wave of Kiss nostalgia in the 1990s, the band announced a reunion of the original lineup (with makeup) in 1996. The resulting Kiss Alive/Worldwide/Lost Cities/Reunion Tour was the top-grossing act of 1996 and 1997. Criss and Frehley have since left Kiss again, but KISS continues with Eric Singer and Tommy Thayer, respectively. The band continues to perform with makeup, while Stanley and Simmons have remained the only two constant members. - Wikipedia

Kiss (ou KISS) é uma banda de hard rock dos Estados Unidos, formada em Nova York em 1973. Conhecida mundialmente por suas maquiagens, e por seus concertos muito elaborados e até exagerados que incluem guitarras esfumaçantes, cuspir fogo e sangue, pirotecnias e muito mais. O Kiss já recebeu 24 discos de ouro.
Constitui um dos maiores impactos culturais da década de 1970, valendo-se de roupas, e sobretudo, maquiagens nunca antes vistos, e que marcariam a história da música. Seus dois fundadores são Gene Simmons (baixo e vocal) e Paul Stanley (guitarra rítmica e vocal), que ficaram frustrados com o fim de uma banda que formaram, chamada Wicked Lester, assim, decidindo procurar novos integrantes para uma nova banda, encontraram tais integrantes através de anúncio de jornal, Ace Frehley (guitarra solo e vocal) e, pela revista Rolling Stone, Peter Criss (bateria e vocal). - Wikipedia
