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…
