Cool, a thread where we can go safely off-roading and not worry if our content is "Tiki" enough. Thanks Bigbro !!



Back in the 1930's through early 1960's, the Middle East actually had romantic appeal, an exotic land portrayed in such fables like Aladdin, Ali Baba, and Arabian Nights. Those stories were eventually turned into movies.



One of my favorites exotic girls in that genre was Maria Montez who played various Middle Eastern characters.



And how about this particular genre of album cover art?

To me it's a kissing cousin to the Exotica and Hawaiian music album covers that we see so much on TC. Actually this stuff lasted well into the 1970's but here I've included only content that is strictly mid-century.










Well if we ever decide to start a pop cultural revival around Middle Eastern "Exotica", we can have our first event at this place in Costa Mesa...



We can call it "Oasis Oasis" and everyone can wear their fezzes in the appropriate cultural context.

Book it and they will come.
I know the perfect surf band that will play middle eastern sounding tunes.

That's funny, John was just talking about that the other night! I've seen the AliBaba, right where the freeway ends.

I think one thread is supposed to be less pretentious than the other, but i'm not sure...

what i can tell, is that one thread is way behind the other in the number of pix of nekkid babes posted...

i'll have a stab in the dark at that...

the exotica girl thread was intended for girls that might embody or personify
the notion or ideal of "exotica" and as such should also have a connection to "Tiki",
this thread was probably thrown up out of frustration at the girls that were being posted
that did not even come close to those ideals.

i posted because i thought this thread might have found its way south fairly promptly.

thinking about it though, this could be a good spot for those girls that don't really fit
other threads, although it would be good if they also had some Tiki connection and probably
vintage or at least pre 1970.

here are a couple pics that don't really fit elsewhere, the girls could probably be thought
of as exotic and maybe of some interest they both seem to be shot in the same studio...

...and there are Tiki connections...






edited to attach a better version of one of the pictures.

Good point. I think I favor the original thread.

No, not as originally defined:

Spurred by the Black Velvet thread, I thought it would be a good thing to pay homage to the Exotica girl, a concept spawned but not limited to Martin Denny's record covers. The Exotica girl can be, but must not be, a Polynesian wahine. Or she can be of Asian descend, like Vladimir Tretchikoff's models. More often she is a mix of several exotic races, and can even have a dash of oriental heritage. But she is always dark haired, dark eyed, and slightly dark skinned. Her almond eyes are hypnotic, and her gypsy temperament makes her seem dangerous and seductive.



I think Sven is just fishing for a new set of pics.

OK, so we saw some Middle Eastern Exotic Girls. Let's move on to some spicy Latinas (or in some cases, faux Latinas).

Everyone's familiar with this iconic album cover...



That's model Dolores Erickson who's actually covered in shaving cream (real whipped cream would melt under the heat of the photo lamps). Would she qualify as an Exotica girl? Well after the last Tiki Oasis, I might guess Otto would say Yes. I think however the Bigbro would say No. Let's be conservative and call her an Exotic (without the "a") Girl.

With the great success of the Tijuana Brass, there were scores of TJB sound-alikes jumping on that bandwagon. All with their own Exotic album cover girls...







And here's the German version...



Some of these girls have that ambiguously ethnic look that would have made them good candidates to be Exotica (with the "a") Girls.
