TikiJaksin- This may be a stupid question, but what exactly IS an Elviki?
I'm picturing a tradtional tiki with sideburns and a colar...maybe big sunglasses and a "lip thing" going.

I sould have asked "Early Elviki or older, fatter Elviki?"

Just curious.

Just be patient..put in a specific search on ebay and have it notify you when one is up for auction...I probably see one every 3 months...good luck,,, Grey

Cindy Crowell, I believe - that's the artist that made him. I've got one, thanks to Patrick from Santa Cruz who gave me his when I coveted it openly.

As my kitchen is both tiki and Elvis, my Elviki is quite the bridge. (He, and lots of Elvis in "Blue Hawaii" photos.)

(I'm at work right now, hence my inability to verify the name of Elviki's creator. Oh that I could have those goodies with me and turn my cubbyhole or my classroom into a tiki oasis!)

Hey guys - sorry to dig this post out of the way back machine.

I came across something interesting at a vintage store and after some research found several threads, including this one, referencing a slightly different design.

Does anyone know anything about this one?



It goes well with my Velvis and my Elvis Pezley.

Very cool - I like the obvious "hook" feature of his "hair" so that you can hang him from a clothesline over your bar!
