Eye Candy for Elvis Fans

Eye Candy Definition

Well, you’re not going to find anything intellectually demanding on this ElvisBlog post, but there is some superficially attractive and entertaining stuff you might like.

 

Giant Floating Elvis Head

Like a giant floating Elvis head.

 

Elvis Look-a-like with a Walker

Or the winner of the Ultimate Geriatric Elvis Tribute Artist Competition.

 

PEZ Elvis Close-up

How do you like this face? It’s a decent replication of Elvis. Any guesses what this is?

Jumpsuit Elvis Pez Close-Up

This angle should give you a clue.

All Three PEZ Elvis

Did you guess PEZ Elvis? With the high white collar and the shades, jumpsuit Elvis blows away the other guys. Poor Army Elvis in the center. He doesn’t look anything like Elvis.

 

PEZ Elvis Collection

Here’s the three of them inside the metal display box. Two packs of PEZ candies and a playable CD are behind them. Blue PEZ guy in the middle doesn’t look like Elvis, either, so here is the altered PEZ Elvis showcase I came up with.

 

Jumpsuit Elvis Pez Display

Much better.

But I did find a good way to use the other two guys.

Pez Elvis Profiles

 

 

Elvis and Bikini Girls in Spinout

Have you ever seen this shot of Elvis attracting a crowd of lovelies in bikinis? He probably could have pulled it off in real life, but this is from a movie. Do you know which one?

 

Clinton / Elvis Stamp

This combo stamp of Bill Clinton and Elvis came from the republic of Chad in Africa. Chad produced all kinds of Elvis stamps a couple of decades ago. They were targeted toward the collector market, not for mailing letters. There were so many different ones that one pundit joked that Elvis stamps had become Chad’s number one export.

 

Elvis Silver Lame Suit

You all know about Elvis’ famous gold suit. How do you like this silver one?

 

Elvis in Mount Rockmore

Here’s an interesting variation on Mt. Rushmore: Elvis, John Lennon, Bob Marley, and Jimmy Hendrix. If it was up to me, I would take out Marley and replace him with Eric Clapton.

 

Lisa with Preggo Bump

Does anyone know why Lisa decided to pose for this photograph?

 

Elvis Toilet Paper

Elvis toilet paper is a pretty strange collectible, but keeping it in a glass display is just bizarre.

 

Elvis Shrugged -- Vol. lll

The third and last issue in the Elvis Shrugged comic book series. Elvis on steroids wearing jumpsuit pants and belt. I own this one, and the artwork inside is really lame compared to the cover.

 

Attack of the Midget Elvii

I like the bug-eyed bald guy telling the ELVII to attack. I’m not so sure about Tinkle! Crash!

 

Elvis Flintstone

I snapped this photo from a T-shirt I owned for 25 years. I sold that Elvis Flintstone T-shirt to a lady in Canada. But I got a bum mailing address from PayPal, and the package never got delivered to her or returned to me. I’m resigned to the fact that the shirt is gone forever, so I’m glad I at least have this picture.

 

The movie clip of Elvis with all those girls at the pool was Spinout. Here’s another good shot.

Elvis and Babes in Spinout

Elvis gets to check them out one by one as they go into that tent. That definitely moved the plot forward.

 

Please let me know if you like Eye Candy for Elvis Fans or not. They’re pretty easy for me to put together, so there may be more to come.

    I love your blog

  2. I would love to see all the Elvis stamps, those belong in a book/magazine for sure. I don’t like the comical things, like the floating head and geriatric guy, anything that reduces him to a comical charicature. Reminds me of when he had to sing Oh McDonald and he said, “So, it’s come down to this.”

    • Hi Katgirlblue. I get your point about the comical caricatures. There is toms of that kind of stuff out there, and I don’t put the worst of it into my files. I really thought the two you mentioned were OK. If a fan wants to dress up their boat to look like Elvis, that’s a display of their love and devotion to him. The geriatric picture was a poke at Elvis Tribute Artists, not Elvis. Anyway, I will try to more discriminating with future Eye Candy pictures.

  3. Yes, Eye Candy was fun. Thanks for putting that together.

  4. Hi Phil!
    I did get Your Fred Flintstone T-shirt Remember when I received it, it was all stained and the package was wet, I was able to get the yellow stains out but the M&M’s were broken! Have a Great day!!!

    • Oh, yeah. Wasn’t there some T-shirt in that lost shipment to you? How do you like the Elvis Flintstone shirt?

    This was really interesting and fun to see and read.

  6. Loved your ‘eye-candy’ blog. The Tchad stamp you reproduced was of particular interest as in 1997 I published the first (and I still think the only comprehensive Elvis stamp book) entitled ‘Elvis In The Post’ cataloguing nearly 200 Elvis stamps from 34 countries at that time. Since that year many more Elvis stamps have been produced of course but I haven’t produced book two as although EITP was well received in the philatelic world the fans were unfortunately not that interested which is a shame as there are many gorgeous stamps doing Our Man proud! I took a copy to EPE in Memphis but as several of the stamps didn’t have their permission, i.e. they didn’t get a rake off, they declined! No surprise there then……

    • Hi Josephine. I have filed one or two of your earlier comments with the idea of contacting you sometime. Would you be interested in working together on a post about Elvis stamps?

      Phil
