Well, I finally found an appropriate tiki name. I've been attending your Tiki Gatherings under my pseudonym "Tiki G's and Tiki Mango's Friend".

I realize that this name means "Merry Christmas", and as I see it, I give you all my gift of gab everytime we meet, just like Christmas!

Most people know me as "MEL".

I have to say, I absolutely love the vibe of the group and their inherant obsession with all that is TIKI. Now, I can actually post my own pics!

I am very new to posting on TC but I've been a fan for years. I love tiki and have been spending the last couple years collaborating with another artist friend and biz partner Dan Peeler. We are also animators....(worked with Grog a long time ago) and puppeteers. Dan produced animation for Sesame Street (in the 1970s) and we had the pleasure of redesigning Chuck E Cheese at one point among tons of other fun stuff, all while living here in Texas. But I first fell in love with Tikis while growing up in Vacaville CA a long time ago.

I attended Tiki Oasis 8 last year...had a blast and decided to expand into making more tiki art and collecting. We'll have a booth at Oasis 9. Come see us! We'd love to meet you. Mahalo! Tiki Charlie

Hello everybody! A short history of how I got here:
In the 60's I caught the bug in the Tiki Room in D-Land. (grew up in Huntington Bch, lot's of surf influence) The 70's brought me to "Kona Hawaii" a dinner/show in O.C. CA. The 80's and 90's brought trips to Hawaii and Sailing to Catalina Island, visiting Luau Larry's and Dougs Harbor Reef. After moving back to the Central Coast,CA (after a short stint in MO) with my wife, Moana Kai Maestra, the dormant bug became more active. We made our own small tiki bar and decorated our small condo dining room. Now we are in full swing in our '63 atomic ranch house (completely retro interior) with its own tiki room addition, including the Brazilia furniture and Tiki mask made by Zac Efron (a former student of mine). I have always been interested in Exotica Music. My vinyl collection is quite large now. You could categorize my tastes as "anything Atomic."
I'm looking forward to being more Tiki involved now, even though, I must admit I have other non-tiki interests such as classic cars of the 50's and 60's(emphasis as a Shelby enthusiast, but enjoy em all), model trains, record collecting, and I play Low Brass instruments.




Hi Loco Honu, glad to meet another Shelby enthusiast, even a Tiki /Shelby enthusiast! I sent you a PM.


AMy

My wife recently introduced me to clay sculpture and I've been making tikis all morning. These have a hole drilled in them and once they are fired they will be the lock handles for my '64 Fairlane since I've decided to make a surf wagon out of it.

So without further ado.... Tiny Tikis:





Here's a shot with the X-acto just so you can get an idea of the scale:

Hello ! I must admit, I'm new to this culture, and I have much to learn. It started with an introduction to the Zombie, and my search to find a recipe. From there I stumbled onto this awesome world of food and drink, something I only ever seen in old movies.
Well, I can't wait to discover more of this site! See you around!



Me too KernTiki! I started with research into the Zombie drink and fell right in!

Howya everyone, I have no idea how I got here. Im Irish and Irish people have no idea what a Tiki is. It started 2 years ago when my wife and I decided to build some decking in the back garden, I was doing all the work myself so the deck area was designed to be huge. After the work was done I was left with loads of decking boards over, with no idea what to do with them I toyed with the idea of building flower boxes............Nahhhhhhhhhh! somewhere in my mind I have always wanted to have a bar in my own home (did I mention I'm Irish? hehehe), but there really wasnt enough room in the house. "Why not build one on the decking?" a strange little voice kept saying in my head. Yeah....yeah....why not? Almost immediately I decided on a beach bar style bar, with absolutely no idea how to build it. It was the most enjoyable thing I have ever done. Not long after building the bar the time came to decorate it and it was then that I realised that the Beach Bar idea I had in my head was actually a Tiki Bar design and I didnt know it!!!!

So there we have it, Some Tiki masks sent from Hawaii all the way to Ireland and now im hooked, looking for Tiki Mugs, Volcano punch bowls, and all those spirit bottles for making lovely Cocktails. You have no idea how hard it is to get Tiki stuff in Ireland.................

Anyway, thats it for now.. Hope to talk to you all later and post some pics of the Bar.

Slainte
Clive.

Hello everyone. Long time lurker, first time poster.

I've carved a couple tikis and recently did some mask like things for my house. This weekend I'm ready for my first Tiki Oasis here in San Diego.

I'm happy to take the plunge and belong to Tiki Central, the site has given me lots of inspiration and tips.
