Elvis Costumers

In the 30 years since Elvis Presley’s death, Elvis impersonators — or tribute artists as they call themselves — have expanded their ranks, from dozens, to tens-of-thousands worldwide.

And where do they turn to for their eye-catching outfits? A Charlestown, Indiana operation called B & K Enterprises Costume Co., Inc.

B & K Enterprises have been internationally acclaimed for their costume designs since 1980, re-creating the jeweled and jazzy jumpsuits of the King. B & K also offers a dazzling selection of shirts, vest, jackets, casual wear, belts, jewelry, and even capes for the Elvis enthusiast.

In this Louisville Life segment, learn how this unusual family business grew from humble beginnings into a global success.
