    He took studs out of the bottom of the beak , in the close up of graceland pic you can see holes in the suit where the beak hooked down, it was then givin a flatter bottom and light orangy oval studs add on top and bottom of beak. it looks to me more of a turkey head now then a bird with the added studs. This suit is also one with no color in the leg kick pleat, but instead is just the suit material and stud work inside.

    The story of the belt and cape and pics of boy are on rareelvispresley.com under belts and cape tab, 3rd picture cap from the bottom. It states that Jimmy Velvet contacted the boy when he was 16 and wanted to buy them, so he bought the boy a brand new fully loaded chevy camaro car for both belt and cape. I read that the boy had died as a teenager, i hope it wasnt in a car wreck with the new car. that would have been awful.
