Here is the link to my blog and pic of my genuine tiki costume. I made it myself in about 2 hours total. The only drawback was the ability to communicate easily and of course sit down. But suffering for art is part of a great tradition.

Eric and Manuel's costumes were my absolute favorite costumes this Halloween. The ingenuity and whimsy of their concepts just makes me grin all over!:



Manuel as the Goof, actually sitting on top of the Bali Hai (!), and Eric as the Stockton Islander! This is on par with the Surrealists' costumes in the 20s! Genius! Can you say TIKI NERD FUN ! As Eric jokingly mused "I am a little worried about actually having BECOME the subject of my obsession!"

Thanks SoccerTiki for the photo!

How to make a tiki costume.....

go ask Eric and Manuel!

Even better than the duk-duks of last year I think!

But Eric....I believe the first step of recovery is admitting you have a "slight " Islander Obsession

Fabulous! I love the Bali Hai one so much-he will need to wear this to the Oasis Thursday dinner next year I think!
