I'm All Shook UP: Waffles' In-Process Elvis Costume


WAFFLES:  BOSS! How do you like my Elvis costume? Since the BlogPaws conference is in Nashville this year, Glogirly's making me an Elvis costume!  What do you think???

KATIE:  Uh, Waffles... that's not a real costume. That's a Photoshopped costume.

WAFFLES:  What do you mean? But I have a microphone and everything.




KATIE:  Photoshop. Photoshop. Photoshop. But it is true that Glogirly's making you an Elvis costume for the conference. At least she's trying to. You should know... she's WAY better with a computer than she is with a needle and thread.




WAFFLES:  What the hello kitty is THIS?

KATIE:  Settle down. It's just a first try at the collar. She's got to adjust the shape. Eventually it will have jewels and studs and rhinestones and –



WAFFLES:  I don't look like Elvis. I look like Dracula.

KATIE:  I was actually thinking the Flying Nun.



WAFFLES:  Oh, man. This is SO not Elvis.

KATIE:  Well Waffles, at least she's not planning on making you wear sideburns. 



About Today's Photos
It's true. Glogirly is attempting to make an Elvis costume for Waffles. She wants to make a collar and cape that attach to his harness and then embellish it all with a bunch of crystals, studs and rhinestones.

After the first attempt at the collar went all Dracula on her, she made some adjustments to the shape and fold. It's a little closer. But she's got a LONG way to go.

As a back up, she's been Googling up a storm trying to find something that's already made or can be custom made. If you happen to know someone who might be up to the task, someone we can hire, please let us know.  Maybe we can put her out of her misery.

  4. ack phone died. Finally step fold over the edge and pin so that the raw edge of the cape is under the collar. Pin and sew. I see I may have to do a video for it to make a lot of sense.

    Or if you need me to I can do the collar n cape and send it to you to embellish :)

  7. I sort of worry about positing this out, but....Elvis is from Memphis, not Nashville. Although they are both in Tennessee. Nashville is more Grand Ol Opry as opposed to Rock-n-Roll. Maybe a bit of Hank Williams, Johnny Cash or my purrsonal fave, Minnie Pearl, would be more fitting? Waffie Pearl would be too cute in his straw hat with the tag hanging down?

  10. Waffles, you are so handsome as you are, you don't need a costume. I'd be willing to bet that you'd be happier with a photoshopped costume...

  20. Waffles, Glogirly might want to ask Ellen Pilch from 15andmeowing for help in this. She is very crafty and is always making things! The Mom is jealous cause hers is not good with crafty things herself, MOL.

  24. We think once the rhinestone and sparkle is on, it will look very Elvis and not Dracula (or Flying Nun). It was all about the bling for Elvis... and maybe for W too!
