A woman after my own heart. Amazing diorama Nantiki! I collect dolls and sometimes they partake in some Tiki Fun as well. Do you remember Liddle Kiddles?
Here are just a few of mine. I can't take credit for making anything. It was a set made by Mattel a few years back.

Happy Thanksgiving.

Very cool! Here is a photo of Ken and Barbie's trip to the Mai Kai that must have inspired the home Tiki Bar.

How did I miss this thread for a whole week? This is definitely something that I am extremely interested in.
I love seeing what you've done.

First, aloha NanTiki. I like to work in 1:12 scale being half the size of Barbie & Ken scale (1:6), but a lot of times, items can slide from one to the other.

I created "the Blue Footed Booby Hatch" diorama for the Bird's of the Pacific Tiki Art Swap.

Hope to see more of your work!

I love love love the Blue Footed Booby Hatch! Detail is beautiful, especially for the tinier more difficult scale you work in - how you made those great tiki mugs? I love your hanging float ball! I spent lots of time trying to make the netting from thin rope and you aced it perfectly!

The Little Kiddles set is so cute, and the tiki's are perfect! It looks like someone handmade it, that is a wonderful find - congrats(I need to shop around for that set myself).

Barbie and Ken at the Mai Kai is cool! Love the coral wall behind them - though if I saw that one when I started on mine, I would have went that route and made a replica of the floor show area including the coral/shell wall - maybe using some HIP or Coco Joes Hula dancers on the stage (Barbie is beautiful, but she's such a stiff and can't dance - though it seems she likes to "flash" alot - ha!)

Let's see some more tiki doll dioramas - now with the cold weather up North, inside projects hopefully can include everyone else's version of their dream tiki bar...

One last shot of Barbie and Ken's Tiki bar - Barbie called it a night, went home to her five kids, because Sailor Ken bought out the joint, then passed out on the floor...
