Hello Guys,

Elvis costumes are a popular costume idea for any time. Whether going to a party wearing a costume, dressing up the kids as famous celebrities or having fun acting as a celebrity impersonator, the Elvis costume is a good choice. But, I have no idea to make an Elvis suit. Any idea on it, please share with me.

Thanks and Regards,

Hello Friends,

Lets begin with his jacket, this is the hardest part to an Elvis Costume. If you have a great suit jacket then this will be perfect, you may just need to have it altered a bit! If your really feeling like getting Elvis back in the building then you want to sew this jacket yourself out of a suede style fabric. Elvis' jacket was always tucked into his pants and left unbuttoned. If its your own suit, you will have to remove the front flaps of the jacket. Elvis always left his sleeves undone so that he could easily move his arms. You'll also want to shape the collar so that it makes that classic popped out look around your face. Do this by lifting it up from the fold and using a small paper-clip around the bottom of the neck area. You can decorate the jacket with pins! Elvis always wore a plain tee-shirt under his jacket, either white, red, blue, purple, yellow, or black!

The best place to find slacks for your Elvis Presley costume is at a neighborhood thrift shop! You are looking for tight-fitting, white pants! You want to cut the hems at the bottom as to create the classic Elvis bell-bottom effect! The next thing to add to our elvis costume is a belt. Your belt should have a large buckle and should match your jackets color! Now comes the fun, Elvis Shoes! You want pointed black shoes, and a high heel would also add to the costume!

Thanks and Regards,
Aaron Carlow
