    My father is a commercial illustrator, and when I was a kid I begged him to do picture of the 70s Elvis for me. He painted this pic. I was thrilled. Alas, a few weeks ago, I was home going through my father's artwork and asked him about the painting. He told me he didn't like it and threw it away. I was bummed (though he does have a number of great paintings of the 50s Elvis.)

    Also, I heard this jumpsuit weighed nearly 30 lbs with the cape. It was this weight that inspired the lighter embroidered suits.

    Ah, thank you for the close-ups of this suit. They really show the detail and color of the design and stones. I saw this suit on display in Hollywood when I saw Lilo & Stitch at The El Capitan theatre a few years ago and seeing it close up, it is stunning. I'm giving this a 10 out of 10!

    In the new dvd "Fit for a King" Gene Doucette calls this suit the kitchen sink.
    why?
    Because he was cleaning all his overstock of buttons and studds so he could get more in.
    so he refers to it as the kitchen sink because there is everything on it but the kitchen sick.

    Have any pictures of Elvis with the cape surfaced (possibly from an unknown date in Jan/Feb, or a surprise where Elvis actually wore capes in August September?
