Rare Disney Enchanted Tiki Room Dress up for auction!

First, follow this link to take a look at this incredibly stunning dress >>> http://www.ebay.ca/itm/Disney-Enchanted-Tiki-Room-1963-Mid-Century-Vintage-Dress-/132224780442?ssPageName=ADME:L:LCA:CA:1123

It has one of the most luscious and creepy novelty prints I have ever seen on a Mid-Century dress, with clusters of skulls, spears, little tribal men, tiki masks, all printed in vibrant mustards, turquoises, bubblegum pinks and oranges. I can't get over how little the pigments have faded over time.

A fabric tie pulls together in the front and is knotted on the side to cinch the waist. The tie does not wrap around the entire dress, but is sewn into the side seems and wraps to the front, like many vintage sarong-style dresses. The dress is meant to hug your curves, but towards the bottom drapes on the hips and falls to about mid-calf.

There is very little damage to the dress. The zipper is sturdy and metal with no rusting or lose threads, and the metal eyelet at the top of the zipper is still firmly sewn in place. There seems to have been a little bit of hand sewing at the slits on the sides to rehabilitate the seams, and a tiny little patch on the bottom right on the back of the dress which can hardly be seen at all, due to the busy nature of the pattern.


Measurements:
Bust - 37" (or a little bit smaller)

Waist - 26"-32" (The reason why the waist can vary is because the sarong style knot can be tied tighter or looser depending on your measurements.

Hips - 40" (Although some people like the tight wiggle dress look, you may have narrower hips and the dress will fit and just drape a little bit more on the figure, which is fine!)

Contemporary sizing would place this at about a women's size 8-10, or a Medium - but again, keep in mind that the tie in the centre can adjust a bit to your waist measurements, so there is room for customization.

Hahaha who's Princess Chelsea?? I just clicked on the link and saw this girl in a wig. The video has millions of views.
I can't listen to it unfortunately because I'm on set and I have to keep my volume off.
Anyway, that's a photo of me, and I'm definitely not Princess Chelsea

Noooo, don't let people know that! it may be part of the selling point.
Listen to the song though, it's weird but kinda cool I think.

All hail Princess Chelsea!

Wow, $710.00, 6/22/2017
Congratz.
It is a cool dress.

I guess tiki is not so dead after all, or is it Disney that sold it?
Disney is the gateway drug to Tiki.

Who knows the inside scoop?? Was it you Skip who purchased it?
Whoever it is, they live in Australia. So that baby has a ways to go.
There was a bit of drama surrounding the dress. I had people messaging me desperately after the auction was completed. But I don't do deals off the books, it ain't fair and it ain't ethical. Whomever won the auction on ebay, won fair and square.
I originally purchased it for 300 with free shipping, so it's still a monetary gain for me. But I also wore her many a time and have photo records of it, whilst keeping her in good condition, so I feel like it's time to pass the torch.
It was so exciting!!

What should I post about next on these forums?? I have a shrunken head collection!

Well it's too big for my wife and too small for me.
But I hear it fit Goldilocks just right.

post the shrunken heads at this point we will take anything.
Even Starwars tiki.

Hi there! Are there any new leads on this dress? I've been trying to get my hands on one for while now.

Any advice on how I could find this dress would be extremely helpful!

This song has been lodged in my brain ever since you posted it, Skip. Love it.
