Did this offer from ShopElvis.com show up in your email inbox recently? They’ve actually got some quality costumes available this year. The gold lame suit goes for $190, the black female jumpsuit is $60, and the American Eagle jumpsuit is the top item at $250.
This’s also a cheapo version of American Eagle that sells for $69 today, but as noted in a 2008 ElvisBlog article, it cost only $38 then. Well, I guess inflation catches everything including Halloween Elvis jumpsuits.
This is the wig in the promo email. It is called the Elvis Deluxe Costume Wig and sells for $30. I love this the item description that says it is made of polyester, and that it has the feel of real hair. What?
This bottom of the line wig is one-piece rubber for $15. Kind of like a shower cap with sideburns. As bad as that sounds, I did an article on Elvis wigs back in 2007 that showed some real losers (admittedly, not from ShopElvis).
How would you like to go to a Halloween party wearing this one?
Of course, some folks like to dress up their dogs for Halloween. And there are websites where you can buy Elvis wigs and costumes for dogs.
Doesn’t Rover look cute?
Yes sir, this is genius, all right.
Interesting placement of the sunglasses.
Looks like they covered all elements of iconic Elvis regalia on this dog. Wait, no oversize belt and buckle?
Lots more dogs in Elvis wigs and costumes show up on the web, but not at sites that that have them for sale. Maybe they are homemade. Here are some of the better ones.
Seems like this wig should be blacker.
The owner of these dogs went to some real trouble to stage this shot. Unfortunately, it looks more like Roy Orbison than Elvis.
This dog looks like he’s really thrilled to be dressed up like Elvis.
Another staged shot. He really deserves a doggie treat after putting up with this.
This is my favorite. You ain’t nothin’ but an Elvis…
