Congratulations! That is a truly EPIC tiki costume! Wow, I thought I had problems with overhead clearance. Great construction method also. I can appreciate all the effort you put in. You should come down here to Key West for one of our festivals! It's all worth the effort when you make hundreds of people smile.

I've enclosed a photo of one of my alter-ego's named "Doctor Tiki". He's the southernmost Tiki doctor in the continential United States, as he resides in Key West. Dr. Tiki has been prescribing hangover cures for tourist for two years now. ("You put the lime in the coconut and drink it all up...")

My construction took about 40 hours and is carved out of styrofoam. 40 rings of 1" thick styrofoam were laminated into a blank, then carved with razor knife and hot knife. If you do this, be sure to use water-based spray paint or your creation will melt!

Best regards,
