I've finally wrapped up some improvements in the Humuhumu Room. Most of the stuff I've been working on is subtle, but I also have some new stuff to show off:


Here's a new shot of the bar itself, which is pretty much the same. I've added a couple of those hokey fake fire cauldrons on either side of my black velvet.


A shot of the shelves behind the bar. This is just some of the smaller bottles & mugs, most of my supplies are under the bar.


The booth


A close-up of the foliage at one end of the booth


One of three palm trees in the room. The previous shot is the base of this tree.


Some of my stuff


My beloved new TC tangaroa plaque, courtesy of Gecko. This guy is looking you in the face when you first come in the room.


This is one of the two Design Toscano tikis, and this is in the corner of the seating area. I've put in five flicker bulbs around the base of him.


The other Design Toscano tiki. This is the one that was ripped off from the old Enchanted Tiki Room poster.


My new fountain! I set this up on top of a shoe rack that I'm using for additional glass storage.


This is the light fixture in the middle of the room. I'm always bonking into it.


A look back at the entry from the other end of the bar.

Your Tiki Room is fantastic. I particularly like that shot of the Toscano Tiki that you have in the corner of your seating area.

That's a great looking bar...good pics, too.
I really like the threads showing members' home bars...very inspirational.

WOW! big change since the last pictures. I like the lighting! I like my tiki bars dim. It gives it that romantic enchanting vibe.

The room is very dim in person. I like these new pics better, too. When I took the old pics, we hadn't figure out how to adjust the shutter speed on the camera yet, so there was a flash. With these pics, the shutter was open for 3.2 seconds.

The tree trunks are yucca poles, I got them from Display & Costume Supply. They're very lightweight.

Veeeeery nice. Looks like the kind of place where you'd need a jacket (I like that)...."Perhaps you'd be more comfortable in this, sir..."

Great!
This room has got a real tropical flair about it!
Id like to know, how was the uke paintjob (?) done, and do you have a matching shirt?

Also, I like the little surfer dude. What I like most about it, hes not the cartoonish shortboarder type that you come by in modern renditions. Is he old?

The black velvet is fantastic! The frame is a little baroque, have you considered a bamboo frame? Thats what I want for my tropical themed woodprints.
