I had a great time in Palm Springs. Sven's exhibit was very nice, got to catch up with some old friends and meet some new ones. It was 200+ miles round trip, the trailer towed well with no problems. Saturday morning, while the rest of the SoCal TC crowd was hung over, I hiked up Tahquitz Canyon to a beautiful waterfall.


Wendy is building me a MadDog Mike Cannibal Bob to match my trailer - you're the bestest Wendy!

There are more pics and I'm sure more to come on
Wendy's thread

Prof G and Dawn - No, NO, and NO! I saw Oasis pics of the guys in their cabana sets. They have better looking legs and/or bigger coconuts than I do. I am NOT about to wear one of those in public

I am working on my Tahitian Cannibal Tiki Dashiki though. I have a basic knowledge of sewing machine operation and a good enought grasp of spatial relationships to understand what a seam will look like when your turn it right side out. But, truth be told, I am no tailor. This pattern is fairly simple as it is designed but of course that wasn't good enough for me. I wanted to add a colored "yoke" around the collar and wanted to incorporate it into the dashiki, not just applique it to the top after it was done. I got in over my head a little, fortunately most of the errors are on the collar facing inside where they don't show. If Dawn, Kiki, Wendy, or any other seamstress gets a good look at it they will have a bit of a laugh. But it will look damned good from across a dimly lit tiki bar


Dawn was gracious enough to design a companion fabric for me; it's the background to the Tahitian Cannibal without the figure. I am getting ready to order some of that fabric to use around the sleeve hems and the bottom hem and then I'll be done. Here's a plug for Dawn's fabrics on Spoonflower in case you have need of some really cool fabrics.

Agreed. Mike you are quite insane. Next thing I know you will figure out a way to put tiki treads on the tires.

Chuck & Tiger, Ill take that as a compliment. If anyone knows crazy it's you two! Tiki tire treads, now that would be a challenge. After the tires wore out I could make them into tiki huarache sandals.

Like many of you, I grew up in the "waste not, want not" era there were children starving in India or China who would be happy to eat your brussel sprouts. To this day I still feel guilty when I leave food on my plate even though I know that restaurants serve way too much food. My dashiki pattern also included a pattern for a kufi cap and I had extra fabric, I thought it would be wasteful not to make one.

The kufi is the West African cousin to the North African fez. The fez is,
without debate, tiki - so if you add a tassel and a tiki to a kufi, how could anyone argue "that's not tiki"?


The band of the hat seems a bit plain, I may have to have "Tahitian Cannibal" embroidered on it

Tiki dashiki with a cannibal kufi? Say that three times fast after a few Dr. Funks. Can you do tassel-spins with that thing?

You might get mistaken for the "African Ambassador of Tiki" if you wear that out, Mike!

Surprised over and over again. Your are SuperTikiMan. I love everything you do.

I carved lines in your mug last night.

I want to see that waterfall.

Thanks Mike for letting us see all your creativity, Wendy

I would say you have a "basic knowledge" on making just about anything!

Very impressive work!

Kinny - MadDog X, I like it!
Greg - I'm working on the tassel spin but I think it needs a lead fishing weight for a little more mass
Chuck - will I get diplomatic immunity?
Hang10Tiki - it will be a couple of weeks before I get the fabric I need to finish the dashiki, then I'll post a pic of me in it
Wendy - can't wait to see my mug finished (don't stress yourself though, I know you have a thousand other projects going. You more even be more tiki productive than Kinny!)
PopTiki, LittleGiles, Robert - thank you. I do these things to amuse myself, bonus if I get to entertain you too.

Last week while I was camping in Palm Springs, the park manager snapped a picture of me sleeping in my trailer early in the AM. This is the UN-RETOUCHED photo he e-mailed me. No Photoshop of any kind was done. Sometimes my feet get a little cold but the weather is pretty temperate here.



I picked up a 1/18 PT Cruiser model cheap on eBay and made the trailer model to go with it. Body made of 2x6 wood, PVC fenders, wheels off a toy truck, aluminum keystock for the hitch, and Sculpty feet. Trailer is about 10 inches long including the hitch and the feet. Thanks for the inspiration
Uncle Trav
