NEED A COSTUME? 

 

SUSPECT LIST

PONI MULOKELI
Hula Dancer / Hawaiian Native
Poni Mulokeli is the hard working performer for the Oceanside Palace Hotel Luaus on Sunset Beach.  She’s an obnoxious one-upper who’s not the most popular employee among the staff of the hotel!  Extended chats with this feisty entertainer are definitely worth avoiding - if you know what is good for you.
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Hawaiian top and grass skirt. Flower (real or silk) in hair. Long, black wig is an optional prop. Leis are optional accessories.

ROBBIE PETERS
Hollywood Actor / Tourist
Robbie Peters is a Hollywood hunk who is currently vacationing - in total disguise - for a month in Hawaii with his co-star Kirstin Withers. They’re relaxing in between films - hidden far from the paparazzi.  But Robbie’s narcissism and arrogant attitude are a little much for the laid back staff of the Oceanside Palace Hotel.  Robbie is traveling under the alias ‘Harry Spotter.’
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Casual yet trendy beach attire. Sunglasses as an optional prop.

KIRSTIN WITHERS
Hollywood Actress/ Tourist
Kirstin Withers is known as one of Hollywood’s nicest young stars. At least that’s the side of Kirstin that Hollywood’s seen! On a more personal level, away from the glitz and glam, this spoiled diva lets it loose with angry tirades if she doesn’t get her way. She’s currently in disguise as an average Jane and she doesn’t like it much, as she doesn’t get the attention she does as a movie star. Kirstin is traveling under the alias ‘Paula Jaxson.’
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Casual yet trendy beach attire. Sunglasses as an optional prop.

TIKI HUTMAN
Beach Lifeguard/ Hawaiian Native
Tiki Hutman was born in Southern California but moved to Maui when he was only eight years old.  He grew up on the Maui beaches and is the head lifeguard at the Oceanside Palace Hotel’s Sunset Beach. Tiki is known for his innovative dance moves and outgoing personality.  He’s the one to get a party started – but hopefully, not while on duty!  The locals are starting to worry that Tiki might be losing his edge as a lifeguard.
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Beach attire with optional whistle.

LOVEY POWELL
Heiress/ Tourist
Lovey Powell is the billionaire heiress that spends her pampered life vacationing in exotic locations.  One of her many mansions around the world is located on the beautiful island of Maui and she refers to it as home base.  Lovey often stays at the resorts on the beach to flaunt her money.  She considers everyone to be subservient to her.  Bossy is her middle name!
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Very expensive looking beach attire with money (fake) bags and money coming out of every pocket. Large costume jewelry.

JACK MARROW
Deep Sea Fisherman/ Resident Tourist
Jack Marrow is quite the odd character.  Originally hailing from the bayous of Southern Louisiana, Jack is currently traveling the world in search of the best deep sea fishing.  He recently had to take a job hosting deep sea fishing excursions, as he ran out of cash during his month-long scheduled vacation and couldn’t make it home to the mainland.  Jack is famous for his pirate impersonations and prefers to be called Captain Jack Marrow.
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Fisherman attire. Optional pirate costume / props. Optional rubber fish as props.

COCO BEACHES
College Student / Tourist
Coco Beaches is the seemingly naive college student from the University of Northern Texas.  She won her trip to Hawaii as part of a Hawaiian trivia challenge on a local radio station. Coco appears to be void of all common sense but claims to have earned a 4.0 GPA thus far in her pursuit of a biochemistry degree. No matter what her academic status truly is – she’s all about having fun.
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Trendy and young beach attire.

ANO HALOA
Waiter / Hawaiian Native
Ano Haloa is the nosy waiter at the Oceanside Palace Hotel.  He might not seem like he is paying attention to the conversation at your table, but quite the contrary!  This meddlesome maître d' keeps a journal and knows every detail about every guest at the hotel!   Be careful what you say around Ano, as rumor has it that he’s just waiting for the day he hears a bit of gossip he can do something with!
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Waiter uniform or black shirt / pants with a half apron (bartender’s apron).

HOLI MULOKELI
Greeter / Hawaiian Native
Holi Mulokeli is the overly-excited greeter and lei presenter at the Oceanside Palace Hotel. The native Hawaiians know to avoid her, but the tourists… well, they better be ready for a surprise when they arrive to the hotel!  Holi bursts with energy and hospitality and takes her job very seriously.  Her enthusiasm has been known to make children cry and animals flee the scene!  Holi is the sister of the hotel’s main hula dancer, Poni Mulokeli.
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Hawaiian top and grass skirt. Flower (real or silk) in hair. Long, black wig is an optional prop. Leis are highly suggested accessories.

SOL BOATMAN

Donut Artist / Tourist
Sol Boatman recently won a lawsuit against a large fast food chain for burning his lip on an overly-heated hamburger.  He’s using his winnings to set out on a tour of the world – starting with Maui!  Sol is a recently retired donut artist and is definitely enjoying the break from the sugary confections.  Sol is typically seen with a bunch of friends wherever he goes.
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Nerdy beach attire.

SOL BOATMAN'S FRIENDS
Moochers
Sol Boatman recently won a lawsuit against a large fast food chain for burning his lip on an overly-heated hamburger.  He’s using his winnings to set out on a tour of the world – starting with Maui!  Sol has recently gained a bunch of friends who have a common interest in traveling the world with Sol.   Therefore, Sol is hardly ever seen without his pals.
