Elvis Davis

Military and Action Costume Specialist


Expertise in period & WW2 military and a career spanning 25 years in 14 countries makes Elvis the ‘go to guy’ for those seeking quality and dependability. His knowledge of 20th cent. Military uniform is second-tonone, and his collection spans all major conflicts of that time. Expertise thus meets production value. UKbased and a member of the L.A. Costume Designer Guild (IATSE local 892), he has worked all over Europe and north America. Understanding the vital importance of a costume looking correct and serving the film, he has constantly applied these criteria and works hard to put the detail onto the screen.
