Hawk is a total miss.

1st fox is a bit to complicated.

2nd fox gets my vote.

I think it was a case of 3rd time’s the charmed, although it’s worth noting that the makeup evolved slightly for THE ELDER and then again for CREATURES. I think I preferred the slicker 1982 design.

The Elder version of Eric's make-up was the best, by far. Not really sure why he changed it for Creatures because it was inferior.

That hawk design scares the hell out of me.

The first fox design has too many fine details and reminds me of Peter Criss' crazy makeup on the first Kiss album.

Definitely the Elder fox for me.

Seems about right...

The first shot at the Fox looks maybe a little more raccoon than fox. The outline is kinda neat, but at the same time, a bit busy. What he settled on was the right choice, though in the pics above, The Elder era definitely looks the best.

Haha--I hadn't thought of the raccoon, but yes, you're right.
He sure looks happy in that picture , though. What a smile. 😎

The Fox makeup he finally settled on is one of the best designs out of all the members/characters; simple and effective.

But imo, this makeup could’ve worked as the Hawk along with the costume below if they hadn’t added the Big Bird chest piece and cape:

Favourite; 2nd version of The Fox. To this day, I still cannot believe G&P wanted Eric to wear The Hawk make-up & costume. When I finally saw the design, well words failed me, which certainly doesn't happen often. Stunned into total disbelief doesn't even come close, an actual Big Bird suit would almost have been an improvement, I mean who on earth came up with such a terrible idea..

What's the difference between the elder makeup and creatures makeup? What am I missing?

The one on the bottom, in the OP. The Pulladium version must have been a bitch to apply; with the silver outline

I like the final version but I've never liked that Eric's bangs cover up the top of the design.

You need to see the whole shape around the eyes to realize it's a fox. The final version also has that nice white line down the nose, which makes the design look better on Eric's face shape.

The version on the People magazine cover. I guess because that was the first time we saw him in Kiss. I know the originals changed theirs some as time went on but Eric’s had the biggest change.

Eric’s Elder makeup is arguably the best of all KISS makeup designs. At a minimum it holds its own against the original four.

I've always thought Eric's makeup in '82 was easily as cool as the original four, maybe more so.

He should have tried it with the silver outline, minus the red under the nose, with the nose like the 2nd design.

They should of had an American Indian design the Hawk make-up and outfit, I bet it would have turned out great then!

the creatures version has too much orange for my taste although the angles are much sleeker. i favor the second one.

The later version is the best. The first fox makeup design is awful, can’t understand how he/they went with this in the beginning.

Honestly, Eric’s makeup design was always weaker than the rest of the guys’ in my opinion. Not bad, but not great. Love all the others, including Vinnie’s design.

I didn't mean a full on Indian look, really, since it was a hawk, though I picture a cool feathered headress.
