Elvis and the Top Ten Halloween Costumes

Top Ten Best Selling Adult Halloween Costumes

On October 19, USA Today featured an article about all the money Americans spend each year on Halloween. They showed a list of the top ten best-selling adult costumes according to the National Retail Federation. My first impulse was to try to find pictures of Elvis in each of those costume types and post them on ElvisBlog. Then I realized three of them were for females: Witch, Princess, and Wench/Tart/Vixen. That definitely made the challenge greater.

WITCH:

Priscilla Witch

As you can see, I was stymied by the number one costume on the list. If there’s a picture on the internet of Elvis wearing a witch’s hat, Google couldn’t find it. However, Priscilla makes a pretty good witch, so we’ll go with that.

ANIMAL:

Elvis in Elephant Mask

I’ve never seen an elephant mask, but I guess Elvis found one for this shot.

.

BATMAN CHARACTER:

Elvis as Batman

Elvis wouldn’t dress up as the Riddler or the Joker. No, sir, it gotta be Batman himself.

.

PIRATE:

Elvis as Pirate

Elvis looks excellent as a swash-buckling bad-ass pirate, doesn’t he?

.

ZOMBIE:

Zombie Elvis

Wow, Elvis wouldn’t get any candy coming to the door looking like this.

 

VAMPIRE:

Vampire Elvis

This is a great job making Elvis look like a vampire, but here’s another one I had to show, as well.

Dracula Elvis and Marilyn Monroe

Who wouldn’t want to bite into Marilyn Monroe’s neck?

 

DOCTOR:

Elvis as Dr John Carpenter in Change of Habit

This was too easy. Anybody recognize Dr. John Carpenter?

 

ACTION/SUPER HERO:

Elvis as Action Hero

I guess this would be Elvis as a generic action hero, but he sure looks like someone the evil guys shouldn’t mess with.

Hulk Elvis

The incredible Hulk is a super hero, isn’t he?

.

PRINCESS:

Queen Elisabeth and Elvis Morphed

I thought the second costume associated with females would be a problem, but it wasn’t as bad as Witch. I could lie and say this is Elvis in a princess costume, but is actually some strange morphed picture of Elvis and Queen Elizabeth.

 

WENCH / TART / VIXEN:

elviris

Whoa. Now that is kind-of creepy.

 

Anyway, I hope you all have a happy Halloween.

Halloween Elvis

    • Hi Anna: That is the longest URL I’ve ever seen. I have this picture in my Elvis Images file, but I decided it didn’t really look like a witch hat and didn’t use it. Thanks for going through all the effort to find it.
