Another Chance to Vote on Elvis Images

It was fun to write recently about the 1992 voting for the favorite Elvis stamp picture.  There are probably many younger ElvisBlog readers who didn’t have the chance to participate, and maybe there are some older ones who never made it down to the local post office to vote.  Well, here’s a chance for everyone to decide which Elvis image they prefer in a dozen different categories.

There is no ballot to mark, and votes won’t be tabulated, but you still can have some fun making your picks.

Elvis Silhouettes:  This choice follows the pattern of the stamp voting, because there is a young Elvis in white-on-black and there is a 70s Elvis in traditional black silhouette.  (Ed. note: A number of easily recognizable Elvis silhouettes have shown up in fabric designs, bonus Elvis CDs on TV Guide covers, and Elvis Week advertising.  Some day we need to do a story on them.)

Elvis Caricatures:  We continue with the young Elvis vs. Older Elvis theme.  If the smitten fan had been in the younger picture, I doubt that there would be much of a contest here.  However, Elvis’ attraction to the ladies adds extra appeal to the not-so-complimentary depiction of jump suit Elvis.

Triple Elvis:  It’s certainly hard for me to pick a favorite here.  I have always thought Elvis looked sooo baaad in that black leather suit, and the first choice has three different poses of him in it.  There’s also one black leather picture in the other composite, and I really love the progression from 50s to 60s to 70s.  Tough choice.   image              image

                                  

Jukebox Elvis:  Both of these pictures contain familiar shots of younger Elvis.  I’d like to call my vote a tie, but that’s pretty lame.  OK, I’ll pick the Elvis from the Milton Berle Show.  Do you know which that is and where the other one came from?

Star Trek Elvis:  You have seen Spock Elvis before in Fun With Elvis In Photoshop – 2, posted last April.  Since then, I discovered Kirk Elvis while surfing deep in the net.  Check out the belly roll on Kirk.  Your choice here will probably depend more on your preference for Star Trek characters than the Elvis faces morphed onto the bodies.

Silver Lamé Suit / Green Lamé Suit:  Well, you’ve seen pictures of the gold lamé suit a million times, but here are two variations (although neither silver nor green is a cool as gold).

Really Old Elvis:  These two photoshop workovers are pretty interesting.  Lets face it, everybody gets old and loses their looks.  How do you like the one that makes Elvis look like some sort of mad scientist?  The other has a hint of Arnold Palmer, doesn’t it?

Foreign Elvis Stamps:  Dozens of countries have issued Elvis stamps, or more accurately stamp sets showing six or eight different Elvis images.  Here are sets form Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan.  Although I couldn’t locate either one on a world map, their stamps are just more proof of the adage presented here frequently – Elvis is everywhere.

Cartoon Elvis:  Fred Flintstone and Homer Simpson as Elvis.  It’s so hard to choose.  (Ed. note: The Flintstone Elvis picture is a photo of a T-shirt I own.  If The Simpson picture ever shows up on a T-shirt, I’m buying it.)

The Elvis Lip Snarl:  I’m not crazy about either of these two images, but the different depictions of Elvis’ famous lip curl intrigues me.  So, forget about the young versus old thing and just pick your favorite lip.

Elvis Statues:  The first statue is in the lobby of the Hilton Hotel/Casino in Las Vegas.  I found the second picture on both French and German web sites, so I assume the statue is somewhere in Europe.  However, I don’t know either language, so I couldn’t read the text that told where it is located.

Elvis Sweeties:  These are two shots you haven’t seen much, if at all.  For my money, these are the two sexiest shots ever of Priscilla and Linda Thompson.  All I can say is “Elvis, you lucky dog.”
