From Jailhouse Rock to the Las Vegas years, Elvis Presley’s many iconic looks between the 1950s and 1970s provide plenty of inspiration to help celebrate The King’s legacy. Don’t forget that as well as the music, you have all the movies to base your party on.
How many Elvises can you have at one party? Lots – just look at how Parkes in NSW is taken over by their Elvis festival every January. As well as the various stages of Elvis, don’t forget Priscilla with a glorious black wig and 50s gear.
