A compendium of craft masquerading as art, art masquerading as craft, and craft extending its middle finger.

Jumpsuit My Heart

Admit it, you've indulged in the guilty pleasure of the Elvis Tribute Artists (ETA). Frankly, it would be un-American not to. The legions of lip-curling ETAs ply their trade in Holiday Inns, casinos, and festivals throughout the country, but nobody ever pays tribute to the woman behind the man behind the "E". Somebody's got to sew on all of those rhinestones, and more often than not, that would be Kay Murphy of Jefferson City, Missouri. In the last 15 years, Kay has built a jumpsuit empire one customized Elvis belt at a time (none of her work is prêt-à-porter, darling) . After all, choosy Kings choose "The Right Stitch" for her variety, craftsmanship, and attention to detail. If you've been considering a leap into Elvisdom, drop her a line today!
