Hahahah... I think you might get more attention if you didn't limit it to just the female friends dressed as hula girls.

Very cool. Nicely done. You apparently have some skill in paper mache work. The end result is nice and smooth and the paint job really turned out well. Was it difficult moving around that day? Did you have a seeing eye tiki to escort you?

Maui Tiki, do you know Michael Mahnensmith, AKA Mike the Sandalmaker? He works in old Lahaina.

I know the shop, but not Mike himself.

I could actually see quite well, and moving around was easy, I just had to watch my head and pay attention when going up or down curbs and stairs.

Halloween is approaching and I've started TWO new Tiki Costumes. One for me and a second for my wife. I'll let my Dad wear last years Tiki.

Construction (How to) Photos to come!

THAT COSTUME IS AWESOME!!! I gotta try that one of these days.

This year I'm making a costume for my 16 year old lineman to be a "witch doctor" type. He'll wear a tiki mask with lots of raffia hair going down the back, and then a typical poly war outfit with red/black raffia arm bands, leg bands, lavalava, fake tats... etc. It should be cool.

If I get my costume finished in time, I'll be wearing it to the opening of the new SF Trader Vic's. It will be most appropriate.

We ended up with 4th place in the largest Contest in Hawaii.

Super Super Cool. The only thing better than last year's costume was 2 more of Last years costume.

Nicely done. A true inspiration to the Halloweenies everywhere.

I love the costumes. I think it must have been hillarious seeing three Tiki's running amuck in Maui. Too Cool!!! Good Job!
Later,
Spermy
