Tiki PinUps

When you hear the word Tiki, your mind projects images of waterfalls, grass skirt’s and flowered leis. The Tiki influence really began in the US during 1930’s and caught fire in the 60’s with Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room and Elvis’s movie, Blue Hawaii, featuring his hit song Rock-a-hula Baby.

Some Like It Shot set out to capture this American adaption of Polynesian culture by photographing two of our pretty pinups, Mama Meg West and Karen The Tiki Torch, at the Crowne Plaza Hotel.

Meg West was our first pinup on deck, Tisha, her stylist, perfected Mama Meg West’s pretty face and styled her hair with spit curls to boot.  Alisha and I photographed Mama Meg West by a stream in a clamshell top, in a flowered pinup dress under a yellow umbrella and under a waterfall in a teal colored vintage bathing suit.

Karen the Tiki Torch, had her hair done by, Tisha, and makeup done by, Tammy.   Alisha and I photographed her in a grass skirt on a canoe, in a blue sailor dress by a river and in a teal green bathing suit under a waterfall.

  1. I had so much fun on this shoot (they all are fun but this one took the cake)!!! Thanks again, and I’m looking forward to future photo shoots, and if Tisha does hair and makeup I’ll be so happy, she is amazing! And great little history lesson, I didn’t realize Disney had such an impact on Tiki here in the states!

    • Thanks Meghan!! I suppose what hasn’t Disney impacted here in the States haha. So much fun I am jealous that I didn’t get Tiki Photos myself <3 but at least I get to look at yours.
