Elvis Is Alive!
One can consider Elvis style to be a "complex style", however, after
familiarizing with all styles and trends minutely, you will understand that
there is now easy drag-styles.
It seems that Russians can't completely imagine the degree of Elvis popularity in USA. This popularity has moved out of the
adoration frames long time ago, turned into the cult with its own laws, customs
and ceremonials. Besides tourist pilgrimage to the Elvis' places, annually there
goes off several large-scaled festivals, where so-called "Elvis
Presley "Interpretator" - king of rock'n'roll doubles of different ages and gender come
together! Yes, women parody great immortal Elvis as willingly as man do. No
wonder that Elvis style is one of the most popular drag trends.
Being Elvis appears to be as much time-consuming as being Michael Jackson, for example. Not
at the stage of laughing and poking ones fingers at you, but at the stage of
adoration and feasting ones eyes upon you. You have not only to look so
brilliantly and inimitable, but also to bounce a-la Elvis, to radiate fantastic
spell, sexuality, force and tenderness simultaneously, to rule over the public -
there is a great list, it's hard to describe verbally. All in all, it's
charismatic personality. Unfortunately, not everyone, deciding to grow
accustomed with Presley image, does understand it. Firstly it seems so simple to
copy external trappings - a suit, a haircut, spectacles - and the sold off is
yours. No. Let's look at the appearance. Ordinary guy, driver from Memphis,
dedicated his first song "Everything's OK, mama" to his mama's birthday (such an
affecting display of fair sonny love), has apprehended his sudden popularity and
possibility to become a singer as a chance to become famous. To be an "artist"
at the stage - means to look strikingly, glaringly, fascinating. "Ordinary guys"
like "The Beatles" have already palled on - a public was waiting for the shows.
And obtained it. Elvis, done up totally, was the first man to shock puritanical
community with "lecherous hip moves at the stage" - he was showed on TV only
beyond his waist. Ladies at the concerts was totally delighted, fainting away
out of orgasms and pelting his idol with their wet pants. Only his suit is
worthy of it: bell-bottomed trousers, wide belt, paste jacket with beadwork and
fringe, and silk shirt, of course. A suit must be light-colored - it's
indecently to talk about the rock'n'roll king costumes' practicality. Arraying
yourself as Elvis, do not niggle: King didn't like forgeries - smartly is
smartly. Famous "golden" Presley's jacket was webbed out of golden needles.
Huge seal rings were genuine. It's one cost for drag-beginner to imitate King
on the hundred percents, pledging his last pants, but you have to keep it in
mind. Special talk is about haircut - a wig is concerned to be a bad form, you
can't array yourself as a King, you've got to live as a King! That's why you
have to be ready to arrange world-famous "duck" haircut (you may ask your
dad-fops how to arrange it), requiring certain hair length and certain amount of
hair spray. Plus whiskers on the temples. They are usually drawn or sticked.
There is one more important aspect. Obviously, Elvis, who can't sing and dance
rock'n'roll, is just a vile forgery. So if you've pledged - take dancing lessons
or learn to move, looking through Elvis videotapes. Despite his rising through
years pounds, he was rather swift lively person. Learn to keep microphone (and
its post) a-la Elvis, it's very important. Finally, King's usual trick is a
presentation. So it's not bad for you to know the text of the songs, as well as
to sing properly, otherwise your neighbors will call an animal rescue service
after your striking up "Only you-u-u-u-u-u..." However I assure you that all
these efforts are worthy coming out at the stage and sinking in the shine of
admiring eyes. Eyes of your mama, for example. Because everything's OK, mama...
Elvis is alive!
