Elvis Paper Dolls

Elvis The Paper Doll Book

When I surf deep into the internet looking for interesting stuff, I never know what I’ll stumble upon. This week it was an Elvis paper doll book. After additional focused searching, I found a few more:

Elvis The Early Years Paperdoll Book

Elvis - The Paperdoll Book

Rock and Roll Legends Paper Dolls

I wonder who else besides Elvis and Buddy Holly they had in this one. If it included Little Richard, I would love to see the outfits they created for him.

Cut-Out Dolls for Grown-Up Girls

This one is interesting. It had cut-outs to make Elvis look like a private eye and polo player (above) plus a tennis player, a business man, and several other outfits. Seems like they could have used a more flattering photo of Elvis’ body.

Elvis’ body looks better in this cover drawing, but his head is too small for it.

 

Better Looking Elvis Body

Elvis’ body looks great on this one, but the artist didn’t capture his face.

And this is the one where I found a wonderful collection of outfits for girls to put on Elvis. It actually had three Elvis body images – in different poses.

Three Elvis Presley Bodies for Paper Dolls

I have taken to calling them Skinny Elvis, Grumpy Elvis, and Stocky Elvis. I guess I shouldn’t be picky, but the right arm on Skinny Elvis looks deformed, and the right leg on Grumpy Elvis is too short.

 

In addition to three Elvis’, there was also a bonus:

Priscilla Presley body for Paper Dolls

How about that? This Elvis paper doll book included Priscilla. I must say, they got all her body parts just right.

 

So let’s take a look at all four models and the clothes that could be put on them.

 

Skinny Elvis:

Jailhouse Rock Paper Doll

Elvis the Kid Paper Doll

Jam Session

I don’t know why this wasn’t given a name.

Rockabilly Cat Paper Doll

 

Grumpy Elvis:

Elvis' Gold Lame Suit Paper Doll

Million Seller?  They should have named it the Gold Lame Suit.

 

Elvis' Army Dress Uniform Paper Doll

This and the next one were titled “In the Army”

Elvis' Army Field Uniform Paper Doll

 

Elvis Ed Sullivan Show Paper Doll

Elvis Love Me tender Paper Doll

Jam Session

Elvis Loving You Paper DollLoving You

Elvis' Charro Paper Doll

You can really see the short leg on this one.

On the Road

Elvis' On the Road Paper Doll

You’ve gotta love a paper doll that includes a hound dog.

 

Stocky Elvis:

Black and Gold Jumpsuit

A group of jumpsuits were grouped together without no names shown on some and strange one for others

Elvis' Phoenix Jumpsuit Paper Doll

The Comeback

Elvis' American Eagle Jumpsuit Paper Doll

Elvis' King Creole Jumpsuit

The movie outlets all had correct names.

Elvis' Harum Scarum Paper Doll

Elvis' Viva Las Vegas Paper Doll

Elvis' 68 Comeback Special Paper Doll

You don’t see many references to The Singer Special. Although Singer sponsored the show, history remembers it as The 68 Comeback Special. The alternate hair offered here would work with all the jumpsuits. It would have been better to draw the longer hair on one of the three models.

 

Elvis' Blue Hawaii Paper Doll

Wow. Three Hawaiian shirts, two accessories, and swim trunks.

 

Priscilla:

 

The paper doll book contained the outfits both Elvis and Priscilla wore at their wedding. Here they are together.
