The Demon's KISS Attorney Adult Costume (above)
There's nothing that screams heavy metal more than this demonic outfit lifted from The Devil's Advocate. It's Gene Simmons' attorney circa 2010 when the God of Thunder's 12-inch bloody tongue struck a female fan. The attorney is one part Keanu Reeves, two parts Al Pacino, and promises to rock your defendant's world.
