A and B are from a couple of photo sessions done in January and February of 1974. This
shows Peter in his first official KISS costume: a black leather west with silver designs,
made from studs. At each shoulder there were a crucifix made from studs, because Peter was
(and is) a catholic. A couple of studded armbands, and a studded choker also belonged to
the costume. The pants were a pair of black leather pants, with a studded belt, and a
couple of handcuffs as decoration (just visible in picture B). He also occasionally wore a
couple of armbands (as seen in picture A)... one had Peter's initials PC written on it,
while the other had Peter's lucky number 3! The number 3 had also been added to the
costume in picture B (just under the left crucifix).
At the end of 1974, Peter had another new costume (pictures C - E). This was a leather
overall, with studs, holes on the thighs, and open in front, tied together with laces. As
seen in picture C is a pair of studded cuffs that Peter would use from time to time,
mostly for photo shoots, and a studded choker, with two rows of pyramid shaped studs.
Picture D and E shows the bottom half of the costume and the various boots used for the
costume. The boots in picture D are the same as he used in late 1973 (see the 1973
section!), while a pair of silver boots (with a shorter heel) is seen in picture E.
