Elvis jumpsuits at the exhibition in Blackpool

Sat Nov 17, 2007 1:41 am

I was just looking through my Elvis pictures on my computer and saw that i had a picture of the jumpsuits that were on display in Blackpool quite a few years back, I was there on opening day and the suits were not behind glass then so i thought i would share it with you.

I went there too, I was touching one of the jumpsuits when I got bollocked by a security guard who told me not to touch, he then followed us the rest of the way round, we then took a couple of pictures and of course he told us to put the camera away,so we left, it was either that or knock him out!!

Putting that cape and scarf with the "chain" suit ruins it for me. It is unforgivable and will not be tolerated. If I were there, they'd have to escort me out because I'd become ugly.

Liverbobs, we had no problems with security that day and I'll tell you all about it next time we talk :wink: :lol:


footnote:
Although the Blackpool exhibition opened on time the presentation was not finished, hence the security guards who were standing with the jumpsuits at that time.
The cape that was put on the TTWII suit was eventually removed and displayed on its own once the suits were put behind glass.

yes, when I went, the chain suit was on it's own, as it should be. The flame suit looked pretty good too!

I do have some photos, but no scanner, so can't get them online. I might dig them out, and ask a mate. There were some nice personal items of clothing including a nice jacket worn 68 / 69, and some jewellry too.

I look forward to it my friend!! I think we just got one of the security guards who let the "power" go to his head!,
I remember the day it opened, we queued for ages and the TV cameras were there, the queue was pretty big and the cameras stopped at every person who either didn't look compus mentos or was trying (and failing ) to look like Elvis and interviewed them! all the normal people were ignored.

Including two ladies who were with us who actually MET Elvis backstage in Vegas !!!
I told Sky News about them and just as they were about to interview them a jumpsuited nutter arrived in a horse drawn carriage and guess what happens?

Yes, cameras did a swift u-turn and they never came back to us !

Absolutely typical!
The night before it opened me and my then girlfriend had a look round,they were still getting it ready, this was about midnight and we were refreshed somewhat but I remember Todd Slaughter running round like a headless chicken while a load of joiners were trying to get the stands etc all finished!
