Last year I got to experience a taste of the Annual Tiki Oasis event, which takes place here in San Diego, CA. I made sure that this year I wouldn't miss out and purchased a pass to attend the festivities Thursday through Saturday. I will do my best to keep my descriptions short as I have a lot of pictures to share. It was hard deciding on these few amongst the over 150 pictures I took.
Day 1 - Dave and I are all dressed up and ready for the opening Tiki Oasis kick off gathering at the Bali Hai.
Here I am with my good lady friends Angie and Natalie. They are also my partners in planning the Annual Tiki Day event.
It turned out that my need for a haircut and my stylists availability landed perfectly on a day of Tiki Oasis. I figured I would have her help style my hair since I was already getting it cut. This picture does not do it justice and I failed to get a good picture of the back.
Day 3 - I scored this jumpsuit at the bi-monthly Frock you sale and was super excited to wear it for the event.
Dave and I at the car show.
I got to meet Josh Agle of Shag, and he graciously signed my copy of "Tiki Drinks".
Fantastic tiki bar, also added to my wish list.
There were plenty of dresses and shirts on sale.
The all mighty Tiki idol bar. Every year they have a different one.
I decided that my "Agent" themed costume item would be more villainesque. Found this book at Good Will a month ago.

Day 4 was the last minute shopping day at the marketplace. I bought a few mugs that will be in my next thrift blog.
Awesome Tiki art.
We had a blast and now we are just 358 days away until Tiki Oasis 2013. I heard next year's theme will be hulabilly. I already have some great ideas hatching.
Till' next time,
