Today we take a look at Elvis costumes. Yesterday, we were discussing America (or at least its States) and today we head towards the Wedding Capital of the World, Las Vegas, situated in the Nevada desert. Why particularly today? Well, 45 years ago on May 1st 1967, one Elvis Aaron Presley married Priscilla Beaulieu in Vegas.
Despite his death, just 10 years later in August 1977, Elvis is still one of the most iconic and widely recognised stars when it comes to costumes. His Vegas style jumpsuit is one of the enduring images of the Twentieth Century and it is an extremely popular costume request for all sorts of themes such as 1970s, Pop Stars, Musical Stars and Dead Icons. Although the traditional look is white, it does come in a range of assorted colours and styles. Coupled with the Elvis wig, trademark sunglasses, bling jewellery and medallions, you are sure to make an impression.
