Linda Carter AND KISS

Post by Terry Zeppelin »

Does anyone remember the Linda Carter special where she sings IWMFLY along with a band of SUPER KISS lookalikes??

Okay...now take a time machine forward to about five or so years later....

Now....remember when Hollywood Gene played a Tranny in that movie with Uncle Jessie (Without the rippers)...

Ok...now does anyone see any simularities in the costumes of both Linda (1980) and Hollywood Gene (1986)??

I could tell without looking it up that Linda's outfit is Bob Mackie. But I did look it up just to make sure and it is.

Bob Mackie was famous for dressing Cher. Gene was involved with Cher. Do the math!

Tough call but I’m going with Wonder Woman.

Also, there is a dancer at the end of David Lee Roth’s video for ‘Just A Gigolo’ wearing the same outfit. It’s like a running joke or something. 😆

Gene x Cher = publicity stunt?

I was just saying that's why Gene knows where to get a tacky glitter outfit. Just a joke though. He obviously wouldn't have been involved with the costume design in whatever awful movie that is. I really have no idea how they ended up with that exact same thing.

It’s got to be the same outfit. Doesn’t seem like there would be more than one made and these were 7-8 years apart.

Since you're only seven days on the board, you must have been lurking here for a very long time to know that. :wink:

Very, very pretty. B-movie fans should watch "Bobbie Jo and the Outlaw" with her and Marjoe Gortner.

I dont know if Mackie was a costume genius or if everybody was so fucking stoned during this era that his designs just benefitted from impaired judgement.

As posted in another thread a while back, Gene wanted Mackie to design the Dynasty outfits but Mackie passed it on to someone else. Can't remember who it was but anyway, he declined to work with KISS. Funny that Gene ended up in one of his outfits eventually...

Yeah this topic comes up fairly regularly on the Faq (I made a post about it myself at one point) but always good to share info I say.

At the beginning and end of that video, Lynda looks fat and/or preggers.

Anyway, adios to Lynda's career! This is at the same time that, thanks to her own asinine tv specials, Goddess Cheryl Ladd adios'd HER career.

Well...i'm new to the board, just like you. But the only difference is...i don't sound like a KISS Faq Board Stalker (since you joined not too long ago but seem to be in the "know" everytime Linda Carter doing Kiss gets mentioned) . And also...i don't try to come off sounding like a friggin' douchebag. Toodles ;)

I saw this at age seven when it aired in late ‘79 or early ‘80 and remember thinking those dancers costumes looked very “unKISS-like” with all the color...

then a bit later I saw the Dynasty Super Hero poster with the real KISS in full regalia on my neighbors wall and was blown away.

But as incredibly cheesy as it is, these dancers’ “SuperKISS” costumes were actually more cohesive looking than the real ones:
