After a lot of work, here they are: my final words on the Elvis Invitational.

 

Elvis Invitational Wrap-Up

 

” A bold addition to the classic splashy white jumpsuit is multiple old glory scarves (hey, where’s the blue?) & … a moustache?! Elvis as gigolo!!! The movie he forgot to make!”

"Back view of Robert (no bad sides on this guy!)"

“Torso of ultra (23 years) pro Robert Washington. THIS is how ya do it!”

 

 

"Mike D. fronts the Graceland Five. Enough said."

 

"Fringe & a determined sneer are de rigeur!"

 

"Jim Dever shows off the Stay Puft Marshmelvis look!!!"

 

 

"Add B-Side Elvis & you got a black- clad stingin' good time!!"

 



" If the only costume ya gots is a t-shirt, make sure to have a phalanx of dancin' cuties!"

 

"The ultimate accoutrement! Peter "The Colonel" Verbrugge holds up the champ's belt. Ronnie Porter wears it this year."

 

Thank y’all very much…

Chris Takes a Hard Look At What Passes For Elvis NowADays

Editor’s Note:  Though there is an obvious ‘conflict of interest’, as our own Chris Mathews WAS one of the contestants – we don’t care.  (Well, actually, Chris might care a little but I pooh-poohed his concerns.  “For goodness sakes,” I said, “we pride ourselves on being a tabloid… and therefore somewhat irresponsible.  C’mon.  It’ll be fun.”)

"Blue was not a color Elvis wore much (but he was hugely BLUES-influenced), but Mike "Blue Calcutta" Weber pulls it off here, complete with exposed chest."

"Mike Dippery chooses the superhero look, complete with big ol' belt & cape (& adoring damsels)"

"Or you could do like Tor & opt for the simple ice cream suit with skinny tie. So many choices!"

“Host Jim Dever shows us the most garish choices: bad wig, big shades & mucho glitz!!! “
