The story describe a 10 year old boy in the orphanage that was curious of Elvis Presley of how all the girls were attracted to Elvis due to his wavy hair. Upon half an hour, the matron from the orphanage called all the boys to visit Florida for new shoes and a haircut. He gets an idea to get Elvis hair cut which attracted most of the girls, so he can be like him where he can become popular and attractive someday. Upon the visit at the big barber shop, the boy asked a man, which was a barber to ask for a hairstyle like Elvis. However, the matron asked the barber which shook his head, telling her no. The matron then ask another men about the barber cutting the hairstyle, where the boy realize that the barber was not allowed to provide Elvis Hair Cuts. Afterward, the matron and the barber yelled at each other and walked separately. The barber then walked outside, smoking a cigarette while the boy followed and stood beside him and asked about Elvis Presley.
Change for Interpretation:
My change for the story is the style of the characters where it involves all human-like people into skelations that are alive and take part of the story which remains the same. The place has been mentioned in the story which is in the barber place, but the time is not mentioned. The change will also involves a gloomy night.
Clear Targeted Demographic:
This short story can be a teen-friendly story with the project idea of drawing cartoons of both the skelation and the setting of the barber place.
Description of Characters and Setting of the project:
The character involves the main character of a boy in a orphanage, and a barber and matron.
