Elvis is in the House!

Elvis is in the House!

I've got a friend from wayyyy back in my Baylor University days, who has developed an alternative personality he slips into when the occasion calls for it.

He likes to do Elvis impersonations so we made him a stage costume complete with rhinestones and cape, circa 1974 Elvis, to go with his bad wig and cheap sunglasses.

.

.

He wears it everywhere and what started out as a little joke has turned into a full-time sideline for him.

.

Wally/Elvis has appeared at events in Las Vegas at the Rio and Harrahs Hotels, Coushatta in Louisiana, and all over Texas while opening for Three Dog Night.

He won't just don The King's digs...he full-out performs The King's hits!

Heck, he's a 2-time winner of the Howl at the Moon (San Antonio) Elvis Impersonator contest!

He says the costume makes him feel "like a rockstar!".

.

Well, this May, my favorite Elvis impersonator is jumping across the pond to Britain.  He is hired to perform a few numbers at a wedding reception in Liverpool and let's just say we cannot WAIT for the video. But in the meantime, we thought he needed a new stage costume for his hunk, a hunk of burning love performance. . . .

We love the pink jumpsuit Nudie Cohn did for Elvis back in the 70s and knew Wally would love it too.  However, it has caused a bit of a problem in the design room - we are having difficulties sourcing pink polyester!

We'll keep updating the blog and Facebook as the process continues!

Is the problem finding pink polyester because it is scarce or is it because you need sooo much of it to cover the King’s considerable talents?

Well, yes we know the King has “considerable talents” but the issue is that you just can’t find Polly & Ester anymore!
