I love that the trooper helmet has Boba Fett range finder on it.

Surf tiki, I think it has the rangefinder because Daniel Logan, the kid that played young Boba Fett, helped design the helmet.

starting to collect some items now that we're all moved in. Painting is going to pose an issue since I doubt my wife will let me paint the baseboard or closet doors. Maybe a fabric cover for the doors will work. Most of the art will be either mugs or paintings/pictures so I need to find some more dimensional stuff. Did some fun little photoshoppy type stuff this weekend.




I've got an old bamboo serving tray I'll probably mount one of them to and hang up.

First ever "commissioned" piece. Awesome custom limited edition tangaroa sculpt/painting from Zerostreet, AKA Tiki Tower, AKA Robert Jimenez.

At the moment it's just a lot of stuff waiting to go together. Found a paint I like yesterday so hopefully the wall will get some color in the next few days.

Finally made some progress. I'm sure the art will continue to move around until I find the right layout but at least it's going up. Have a few pieces from TC members in there. Sam Gambino print, BenzArt mug, framed post cards and multimedia piece from Robert Jimenez. I converted the trooper helmet in the water lilies to a painted canvas print and it came out really cool. It will never go full out matted walls style tiki lounge since it is the guest room as well as the "man cave" and I frankly don't like the smell. Have a vintage record player on the way to spin tunes on also. I also need to build a rack to hang my light sabers from (weapons free area) and put up a shelf for my collection of beer and wine bottles with skulls on them (totally unrelated to the rest of the room).

This is the best ever!!!!!!! Love this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

There was an idea I had for a while while I was doing ceramics; I wanted to make a mystery drink bowl with Vader helmets as legs, but more moai looking? The bowl would have been a half of Death Star.
I suck at sketchin, but you get the idea...

Can't wait to see more!!! This is right up my alley...

Thanks for sharing!

-Lena.

Thanks, it's certainly going to be a work in progress. Got a old WW2 era steamer trunk the other that that I put on it end in the corner to hold the record player and and I'm still waiting on a Boba Fett pinup print. It's going to be an effort in trying not to go tooo Star Wars since that's way easier to find around here than tiki stuff. Debating wall mounting the TV so that I can put a frame around it with a cover to hide it.

I thought of your build when I came across these party lights:
